    Found this in the comment section. Not sure how accurate this statement is:

    Yup, America is falling behind because we have become the naysayers whereas Chinese have become the "let's try something new" nation. China will take the lead in both autonomous ground and flying cars - all former American dreams - because Americans have become glued to the past and skeptical of the future. Naysayers. Always looking for the negative rather than embracing the positive. As China was once left behind 500 years ago, so America will be left behind if Americans don't embrace the future.

    And if it's not a taxi, they're driving a transport. Even scarier

    It is completely autonomous no one flies it, you just enter the destination on the map and off you go.
