Chinese Unveil The World's First Drone To Transport Humans

This might be the most innovative product to ever come out big red. One question remains, would you really trust your life in this? 

If danger is no problem you'd be happy to know they're fairly valued at $200,000 to $300,000 and available for sale now. 

Imagine if we all had these one day... short automobiles. 

The electric-powered drone can be fully charged in two hours, carry up to 220 pounds and fly for 23 minutes at sea level, according to Ehang. The cabin fits one person and a small backpack and even has air conditioning and a reading light. With propellers folded up, it's designed to fit in a single parking spot. After setting a flight plan, passengers only need to give two commands, "take off" and "land," each controlled by a single click on a Microsoft Surface tablet, the company said. It is designed to fly about 1,000 to 1,650 feet off the ground with a maximum altitude of 11,500 feet and top speed of 63 miles per hour.
