CEOs and their Drones
Last night I read an article about the Kemp Forum on Expanding Opportunity in South Carolina where six Republicans running for the presidential nomination appeared. It mentioned that Republican Carly Fiorina was absent because she had missed her flight. I don’t recall the last time I had read something like that but I am sure that it happens.
Someone is working on fixing this problem. According to an announcement at CES, Chinese company Ehang has developed a single-seat, self-driving drone copter operated by a tablet. You just get in and type in your destination in Google maps and there you have it. It runs on batteries that will keep you in the air for 23 minutes so hopefully you won’t be all that far away. Carly or any other missing-in-action candidates or CEOs stuck in traffic can buy one for $200,000 to $300,000 later this year. Of course, the red tape on flying such a thing will be vicious.
