Will individual mobility conquer the sky? What would taxi drones look like? How would the cityscape change with flying drones?
This speculative documentary, made in collaboration with David Leonard, explores the future of mobility. It features a human drone taxi program that could soon launch in Los Angeles.
Lifting a taxi into free-float mode wasn’t our true intention in this project. Even though thinking about how this would work was very amusing. This video is the outcome of a speculative design experiment. An approach to creating a future we envision, but one that is just not quite there yet. This video helps to bridge the gap of imagination by making a far-away future tangible. Once a drone taxi is considered a future fact rather than science fiction, then a discussion about the implications of this kind of urban mobility service unfolds.
