A lot people love the idea of a self driving car.

Imagine this: you get in the car with your laptop or maybe your newspaper. You grab your coffee and you car takes you right to where you need to go without a driver. That may sound good, but this takes is to the next level.

How about a self-driving mini plane?

This comes from Uber. They have released their vision for a network of flying cars for the next decade.

Just like the Uber car service, these flying vehicles would come to your house with the touch of an app, pick you up, fly above all the crowds and congestion, and drop you off right to where you need to go.

Keep in mind this is just an idea; an idea that’s been around for 100 years. But we appear to be getting closer to something like this becoming a reality.
