Chinese drone-maker Ehang has developed the 184, a prototype of the first autonomous drone that will fly humans.
The helicopter-like flying machine seats one, and after the flier enters the destination, it will require just two button presses from the rider: take off and land. That's all it takes to pilot the thing…

For rescue missions or some cargo drops a load-carrying drone seems very practical.

Let's concentrate on making things that don't break or explode 5 minutes after you turn it on.
