Cormorant autonomous passenger drone

People have fantasized about flying cars since flight was invented yet the technology was always out of reach until now. The Cormorant is a drone about the size of a van that can carry people. The Cormorant flies itself and uses many sensors to navigate its surroundings and can determine when there is a problem such as an obstacle. It has potential to be used as things like ambulances and taxi services
