Uber unveiled a new design for its futuristic "aerial taxi" at the second annual Uber Elevate conference today. And judging by the concept art, Uber is still trying to figure out how to make electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) a practical reality. The company's latest design looks like the Spruce Goose of flying cars - huge, unwieldy, and something that we'll probably never see fly.

Self piloting, zero emissions flying taxis are being shown off in New Zealand.

And while there are sure to be lots of regulatory challenges along the way, we are getting closer to the utopian dream of flying cars.
