With a demand for transportation and less traffic, Google’s co-founder Larry Page and a Silicon Salley startup have developed a vertical landing and takeoff vehicle that is designed to be used as a taxi.  Right now the taxis are being tested and practiced within New Zealand, but have been very successful and eventually may be everywhere. In fact, other companies such as Uber are also funding research into flying taxis.  Some of the biggest upsides of flying taxis are that they have a vertical takeoff and landing, which means that they don’t need a runway to land or takeoff and they are going to be all electric which means zero emissions into the air.  Once these taxis come out, the only setback will be the price, but once they figure that out they will probably become extremely popular, and may even become the next big thing. I am very excited about this new technology and being able to one day ride one myself.
