Driverless flying taxi service set to launch in Dubai

Driverless flying taxi service set to launch in Dubai Dubai has announced yet another pioneering initiative, but this time it's not the world's first rotating skyscraper or 3D printed office.

A Plane That Folds Into a Car

 A Plane That Folds Into a Car After Czechoslovakia’s communist regime fell, in 1989, designer Štefan Klein began working on a concept for a flying car. Inspired by his newfound freedom, he aimed to translate that personal liberty to the skies. In 2010, he shared his work with his friend Juraj Vaculík, an entrepreneur.
