Japan’s Flying Drone

Greetings Everyone,

I came across some interesting IT news today and had to share it with you all. The following information comes out of Jalopnik.

Japanese electronics NEC tested its flying drone prototype recently, and it has everyone buzzing. Many have mistakenly called it a “flying car,” but it’s a drone that people can ride in. The demonstration took place in Abiko, Japan, and it hovered 10 feet in the air for about a minute. The drone runs on batteries and weighs only 331 pounds.

Kouji Okada, NEC’s project head, advised the following:

“Japan is a densely populated country and that means flying cars could greatly alleviate the burden on road traffic. We are positioning ourselves as an enabler for air mobility, providing location data and building communications infrastructure for flying cars.”

I wonder how this drone will affect the climate. If you have any additional information on this project, feel free to comment below. You can check out the full article by clicking here.

Until Next Time…
