Yesterday at the CES, Brian Krzanich, the Intel CEO, displayed their flying car that runs on battery and is thusly emission-free. The company will showcase the ‘Volocopter’ at the main event of CES 2018 that’s starting today.

The Volocopter is coming from a company based in Germany having the same name, launched in 2012, and had its first flight the year next. On Monday, Intel brought the ‘flying drone’ in front of the attendees at the Monte Carlo Hotel of Park Theatre.

It was flown inside the venue without a pilot and was tethered down after a short while. During the display, both the seats were kept open.

A futuristic sci-fi vision of calling an owned personalized ride by air taxi via a transportation app on a smartphone is not as far as we can think of.  – Brian Krzanich, the Intel CEO

At the same time, it is important to note that the Intel flying car is yet to be authorized by FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). Only then will it be possible for you to get into the Intel flying car. As for availability, it will start with the American markets.

Florian Reuter, the CEO of the company Volocopter said on the display that the self-flying drone was “extremely simple to fly, quiet,” and even mentioned the benefit of being emission-free. Given that it is yet to be out for consumers, the CES attendees of this year are welcome to check out the Volocopter at Central Plaza of Las Vegas Convention Center.
