You might not have heard of Ehang 184, but it is a Chinese company that just created the world’s first passenger drone. The Ehang 184 is an autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) or as we like to call it, a personal drone that can transport one person weighing about 264lbs on predetermined flight plan.
On display at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show ( CES 2016) costing around $200,000 – $300,000, it looks quite stunning and may represent a new way for people to travel. Imagine that possibilities and freedom you can get from beating the traffic jam from this personal drone.
However, despite the slick video showcasing the Ehang 184, we have our doubts about the reliability and safety of this drone at this time. And even if we were able to buy one, you can’t really use it anytime soon without clear regulations from the government on drone usage.
Yet we can’t help but think how this personal drone can save on our commute and cut out the traffic and environmental congestions that are happening around the world.
We love to hear from you and what you think, take the poll and add your comments.
Would you buy this world first personal drone that can transport human?
