"From the Ted Talk by Rodin Lyasoff: How autonomous flying taxis could change the way you travel"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So in that example, OK, there are a few extra steps, I admit. But it's 30 minutes versus two hours, it ctsos around 60 dollars, and you get to fly. We're not there yet, but we are a lot closer than you might think. So one of the first things we need is we need an aircarft that can take off and land in slmal spaces and quickly take you where you want to go. And helicopters can do that today, but traditionally, helicopters have been just a little bit too expensive, just a little too hard to poilt and just a little too noisy to be used for daily transportation in cities. Well, electric flight and autonomy are cnihangg that.

So in that example, OK, there are a few extra steps, I admit. But it's 30 minutes versus two hours, it _____ around 60 dollars, and you get to fly. We're not there yet, but we are a lot closer than you might think. So one of the first things we need is we need an ________ that can take off and land in _____ spaces and quickly take you where you want to go. And helicopters can do that today, but traditionally, helicopters have been just a little bit too expensive, just a little too hard to _____ and just a little too noisy to be used for daily transportation in cities. Well, electric flight and autonomy are ________ that.

We're not there yet, but we are a lot closer than you might think. So one of the first things we need is we need an aircraft that can take off and land in small spaces and quickly take you where you want to go. And helicopters can do that today, but traditionally, helicopters have been just a little bit too expensive, just a little too hard to pilot and just a little too noisy to be used for daily transportation in cities. Well, electric flight and autonomy are changing that.
