Uber Elevate is on-demand, urban air transportation. Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft will bring far-reaching changes to our cities and our lives—quicker daily commutes, less traffic congestion, and cleaner air around the world. Uber Elevate has already started exploring the barriers we’ll need to overcome to make this a reality.
I think you should focus A LOT on security...because I can't help but to think about bad people having access to this...please be careful Uber!!!Pros:
I DON'T THINK WE areADY FOR THIS, IT IS AN AMAZING IDEA, IN A WORLD FULL OF HATE...PEOPLE ARE CLEARLY GONNA USE THIS FOR BAD THINGS
The cities of other countries (nor USA), don’t have yet the problems of the “fist world”, but we enjoy the tecnology of the XXI century. We have smarter movility, comunication and protection. But, in somehow, we still live in the 1900, with our families and friends even closer that we have they in recent past. This lucky we have, it’s nothing but TIME, time to us, time to do that we love most. It’s this time that the people of the great cities love but expend it in movilization. In that point, the smaller and “third world” cities are more advance, making the infractusture more eficient and human. Probably the problem of all is size. Probably the future cities will be smaller settlements that have it all in a more efficient space: vertical farms, internet services, virtual malls, etc.Pros:
It really how UBER is doing this, in parnetship, with commitment and, for over all, in concordante with their company‘s Mision/VisionCons:
UBER can make this even more participative when they incluide cities and citizen of other countries. We also have something to say
The "boring" idea is better.Pros:
Nothing for people transportation in cities. Possibly useful for emergency medical help and remote countryside.Cons:
Just imagine dozens and hundreds of huge drones hovering over your head hiding the sky. It's worse than a nightmare.
Gliding systems from zeppelins is the way of solving this problem.
UBER and everyone else that will trying to commute utilizing freely autonomous propellered system will fail due to inability to control millions of flying vehicles over dense urban area, such as NYCPros:
Its a step in the right directionCons:
But it is not the right way to solve this problem
