Clean Electric Drive Technology Is A Disruptive Technology All By Itself.
Imagine a world in which you can head out from you home or apartment, climb into a sleek looking eco-friendly vehicle, rise vertically into the air and travel anywhere that you want. Autonomous computer control allows you to fly safely without having to be trained as a pilot.
Like many electric drive technologies, this one will also be a disruptive one. You do not need roads or runways in a world that moves in 3 diimensions and has vertical lift capability. In fact you do not even need drivers/pilots. Electric drive systems have very few moving parts so the will tend to have a very high reliability and will require very little maintenance.
In large cities many of the jobs today involve driving people around whether it taxis,buses or trains. Automous drving technology may change all of these jobs forever.
