A Human Carrying Drone?! – Positive News

Alright, I’ve been doing 1-story videos
for a while now, so I thought I’d switch it up, and now there are going to be two stories
in this video! Yeah, not exactly that big of a deal, but it’s a start, one-story videos
just get boring after a while. [Intro]
First off, “thou shalt not kill” is a very well known saying, being one of the ten
commandments, of course that applies to humans, however, the FBI has now declared animal abuse
a Class A Felony, progress of the embarrassingly late kind, especially considering that we
can all agree that when a human dies in a movie, not so sad, but when an animal dies,
[pure sadness]. The FBI has determined 4 different types of
animal abuse; neglect, intentional abuse and torture, organized abuse (such as cock fighting
and dog fighting), and the sexual abuse of animals. Oh, come on, people! Seriously?! Our second story this week concerns drones,
you know, the new kids above the block. For the past eternity or so, we have been wishing
for personal flight, and though we’ve achieved flight through airplanes, that’s not personal
flight. Personal flight has been achieved through wing-suits, but no matter how AMAZING
they look, especially over Dubai and the Grand Canyon, not everyone has a cliff, or a skyscraper,
to jump off of when going to work, often it’s the opposite.
However, Ehang Inc., a Chinese manufacturer based in the Guangzhou Province, brings us
the Ehang 184, which is basically a drone that can carry a human for 23 minutes at sea
level in its current design. If you look at it, it strongly resembles a helicopter’s
late-night encounter with a drone in some sketchy alley behind the SkyMall.
It is currently planned to go up to 100 km/h (60 mph) for 23 minutes at an altitude of
up to 500 meters (1,650 ft), though this will eventually be lifted to up to 3,500 meters
(11,500 feet). It will carry 1 person & 1 piece of hand baggage, and is going for prices
of… $200,000. Yeah, I’ll wait for inflation to render that a small number. See you on
Sunday, and stay positive! If you want to find out more, click the video
