27 oct. 2016.Within a decade, according to a white paper released today, Uber will have a network—to be called “Elevate”—of on-demand, fully electric aircraft that take off and land vertically. Instead of slogging down the 101, you and a few other flyers will get from San Francisco to Silicon Valley in about 15 minutes—for the price of private ride on the ground with UberX. Theoretically. These aren’t flying cars in the sense that they both drive on the ground and soar through the air. Uber is using the much more exciting, Jetsons sense of the term: a future that lifts you over the brutality of traffic jams and congested roads.
