The future of urban air taxi is closer than you think, this is according to Bell Helicopter. Imagine coasting along in the sky while masses of people are stuck in the gridlock of traffic below. This is the proposition by Bell who is showcasing their future air taxi concept at CES right now.

With a full suite of connectivity technologies such as video calling, Wi-Fi, artificial intelligence and wireless charging, passengers of Bell’s Urban Air Taxi will have the option to fully maximize their airtime. The user has the option to finish off those last minute meeting notes, video call that important someone or just bask in the magnificent surrounding view. The design Bell’s Air Taxi looks as though it’s part of a Hyperloop design entry, and it certainly has me excited. Given the taxi quality of this air travel vehicle, I wonder why Bell chose to have four forward facing chairs and not give the back row their own control panel in the rear and face the back row towards the rear. Design choices aside, Bell’s Air Taxi is sure to be swamped at CES, be sure to check them out!

Designer: Bell Helicopter
