Uber: Flying Taxis Will Make For The Ultimate Experiential Ride

Uber unveils design models for flying taxis. TVG weighs in on the experiential possibilities for this new technology.On CBS This Morning, Uber unveiled the design models for their autonomous flying taxis, which the company is aiming to launch in the next two years. The company’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi¬†stated that “cities are going to go vertical in terms of transportation and we want to make that a reality.” From an experiential perspective, we’re excited about the opportunities for brands to partner with Uber for creative ride experiences. We’ve already seen brand takeovers of ride-sharing companies including Lyft’s Stranger Things-inspired Strange Mode¬†and Uber & Visa’s Double Decker dining experience, but the possibility for “in-the-air” experiences takes things to a whole new level. Brands could skin these vehicles to make them look like aircrafts from popular film/TV franchises, or they could even include a VR experience within the vehicles so that passengers feel like they’re flying through a breathtaking virtual landscape.

Sky is literally the limit when it comes to airborne experiential Uber rides…
