Did you read Mark Zuckerberg’s manifesto entitled "Building Global Community” last week?

The Facebook CEO posted a lengthy document talking about where he is taking Facebook and where he sees the social media giant in the future.

A growing number of companies are looking at the viability of airborne, autonomous taxis as a way to ease urban congestion and transportation woes.

But the city of Dubai could leapfrog those with a plan to deploy a passenger-carrying drone as early as this summer.

The Ehang 184 is a drone that can carry one passenger with a max weight of 220 pounds, for a distance of 31 miles on one charge and at a top speed of 100 mph.

It’s plenty enough for short haul trips across a busy urban landscape.

Dubai officials will remotely monitor the drones, and pilot them from a centralised command centre, and the city says it’s already started test flying the vehicle in Dubai skies, so this isn’t just pure bluster.
