Personal flying vehicles have been a sci-fi dream for decades, but one Chinese start-up appears to have actually built one.

The Ehang 184 is the world’s first driverless passenger drone.

It is described as the world’s first autonomous passenger aircraft and was this week on display at an expo in Tongxiang city in east China’s Zhejiang province.

The vehicle is capable of carrying one passenger for 40 kilometers in the air. So far, 1,000 orders have been taken.

Passengers simply get in, belt up and let the drone drive itself to where they need to be

This drone is being tested in southern China and can go at 100km per hour!

  2. The drone should be fine for the environment. It says the drone is electric. It also looks awesome and it must be amazing flying high above your house.
