Soon, drones will carry people through city streets

Dubai’s dramatic skyline will soon be filled with buzzing passenger drones ferrying tourists and commuters.

It unveiled its first pilot-less helicopter taxi during the second day of the World Government Summit in Dubai.

It hopes to begin a regular service as early as July.

The tiny egg-shaped drones fit one person and can fly for 30 minutes at-a-time.

The Chinese-made EHang 184 has four legs sticking out, each with two small propellers.

Mattar al-Tayer, the head of Dubai’s Roads & Transportation Agency, made the announcement on Monday at the World Government Summit.

And we will only hear about the success and not the failure.Deaths will result from this during the early phases,but it's like the chest pounding done by authorities when bad criminals are removed from the street and nary word when they are released.
