Imagine delivering your delegates direct to your event in an UBERAIR flying car!
At the second annual Uber Elevate conference in Los Angeles today, the company unveiled six radical designs from six different architecture firms for its “Skyports,” which is what it calls the on-the-ground infrastructure where people will be able to hail an UberAir. While the resulting concepts look right out of a science fiction movie, the company says it actually chose these six from dozens of submissions because of their feasibility and realism. Some were inspired by beehives; others are designed to sit right on top of existing highways and have a small footprint. Most of them can accommodate about 1,000 takeoffs and landings per hour.
