Imagine a taxi that can automatically switch between the road and the sky to get you to your destination in the fastest, most efficient way possible. This concept from Airbus and Italdesign is just that.
It drives completely autonomously. When it needs to take to the air, it'll stop at a changing station, where it will ditch its wheelbase, attach a massive drone to its roof and off it'll go through the air. It'll simply do the same thing in reverse when it lands, driving you to your final point.
It's a long way off being a reality, but Airbus hopes to have a proper working concept within ten years.
