Airbus Unveils World’s First ‘Drone-Car’ at Geneva Motor Show



Italdesign and Airbus unveiled the ‘Pop.Up’, the world’s first fully electric, zero emission, drone-carried vehicle, at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday. The ‘flying car’ was designed to help relieve traffic congestion in cities by simply flying out of traffic.

The car’s driver sits in a frame that is fitted within an autonomous car. When traffic builds up, the driver has the opportunity to escape through calling a drone on their iPhone to wherever they are sitting. The drone then lifts the capsule into the air, and carries it and the driver off to unpolluted freedom. Of course, flying cars present many problems with air traffic control and safety, so the technology is not quite ready for mass adoption, but the concept is exciting.

How you you like to simply fly up and over traffic in Airbus’ Pop.Up drone lifted car?
