Ehang 184 Autonomous Manned Vehicle Drone at CES 2016

Ehang, a Chinese drone maker, unveiled a high-flying 500-pound drone, which in theory would also be able to serve as an autonomous transportation vehicle for real humans. According to the company, the elegantly designed drone can fly one person at approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles) per hour on a roughly 23-minute trip. The all-electric drone even has redundant equipment to ensure safety in bad weather. One caveat: It’s not legal in the U.S. yet.
