This year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas opened to a lot of exciting products across different categories of consumer technology. But what caught our attention is Bell's flying car, which makes us believe that flying car may not be far from reality. Thanks to Bell’s hybrid-electric flying car, which will be available via Uber sometime in 2020.
What we are looking at is Bell Nexus, which is currently nothing more than a concept taxi. it will use six fans to take off and land. Bell joined hands with Uber back in 2017. As a result, Uber's flying taxi service is expected to be a reality in the not-too-distant future. Bell is showing off Bell Nexus at CES.
There will be a conference session called 'The Flying Car' at Day 2 of CES. It kicks off at 9 AM PST (10:30 PM IST). This is what the event description page has to say:
"Several companies are building flying cars for both commercial and leisure purposes. Where is this industry headed, which players are taking us there and what’s the vision for this near-future mode of transportation"
The list of speakers includes Wards Intelligence's Doug Newcomb, Italdesign's Massimo Martinotti and Spirent Communications' Jeff Warra.
