Audi, Airbus, and Italdesign Tests “Pop.Up Next” Flying Taxi for Future Cars by AutoReportNG: 5:41pm On Dec 03
In a world of diverse and incredible technology, the world is moving at a very fast pace and it takes only the smart to catch up, don't be surprised when the world starts flying on drones very soon, as we already seen in Dubai.

During Drone Week in Amsterdam, Audi, Airbus, and Italdesign have presented “Pop.Up Next” Flying Taxi prototype for the first time. This high-tech transportation system could be our future of a flying taxi by combining a self-driving electric car with a passenger drone. During the first public test flight, the flight module could place a passenger capsule accurately on the ground module, then it drove from test grounds autonomously. Even though it’s still 1:4 scale model, but it’s highly possible that in coming decade, you could enjoy this convenient and efficient flying taxi service in large cities with the multi-modal operation, in the air, and on the road. Passengers don’t need to change vehicles, they can relax or work in their cabin and let the system do the rest.

Audi believes, flying taxis are our future, more and more people are moving to the cities and more people would be grateful for automation. Senior citizens, children, and people without driver’s license will want to use convenient robot taxis. This futuristic Audi Pop.Up Next Flying Taxi transportation system would also make a smart allocation of traffic between roads and airspace, all of us would eventually benefit in equal measure.

NIGERIA IS A FAILED STATE WITH ALL THE HUNDREDS OF UNIVERSITIES BOTH GOVERNMENT OWNED AND PRIVATELY OWNED THAT CAN NOT CONTRIBUTE PROFITABLY TO OUR SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH.

We are good at celebrating the accomplishment of western countries.

But our leaders refused to let go of our collective commonwealth as a nation.

Now that crude oil is dwindling is it not high time we should awake greater scientific consciousness in our attitude to development.

people that knows that it takes intellectual reasoning for a country to leapfrog into development... not just playing lip service and long prayer but action and commitment...

Can't be better said.

I asked yesterday if it was too much an ask for the government to provide the 5 basic needs of the people which are:
A small but safe house
Food.
Water, electricity.
Basic clothes.

The government have not had good and futuristic thinkers, all we have had are futuristic stealers bent on destroying the nation.

Shame!
