The era of technology has indeed changed the order that occurs in the world progress of the times. And what makes all that progress more rapidly is indeed the keyword of computerized systematics.

In terms of all kinds of technological advances, there are now a variety of new products that can be felt by the world community to products that are still in the development stage.

Flying taxis are one of the products that are present following the changing times. The word Taxi is usually attached to a motor vehicle, especially a car that can transport passengers to the destination they want to go to.

Taxi according to the development of the era is growing very rapidly from the existence of only four-wheeled vehicles to sea and air vehicles. However, all of them are still in the condition of using a driver or requiring humans to run the vehicle.

The technology that is currently being developed, especially in the Asian region such as Japan, Korea, and China, is developing and has created a new advance in rental-based transportation systems, especially Taxi vehicles.

Indonesia as one of the countries that have recently taken part has taken steps from several native Indonesian investors who started to open and run this business.

Flying taxis or electric-powered passenger drone vehicles. Now starting or will be marketed in Jakarta as one of the big cities and as the capital city of Indonesia.

This flying taxi uses a drone powered by electric technology. For now, flying taxis that enter and will be used use technology from China called Ehang 216 which was brought from the country of bamboo curtains. Reporting from several reports, what are the advantages of using this flying taxi service, it is said to reduce the human error factor. Where this drone is computerized. The drawback is that the costs are still expensive and only in one area.

Talking about advantages and disadvantages, it seems that technology is developing and will slowly reduce the level of human productivity as workers. Where now robots are more reliable in terms of work. But yes, that is a consequence that must be seen. The point is that as humans, we must not lose to robots, of course, it means that we must be more prepared to move forward.

The flying taxi Ehang, which has arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia, has eight arms and has 16 propellers. Can take off vertically. Can cover a distance of 35-65 km. And can carry a payload of 220kg with a flight time of 21 - 40 minutes. With a maximum speed of 130 km/hour.

It's quite interesting indeed, but if you look at the problem with the length of flight time, it's still too little. Looks like flying taxis, for now, are suitable for sorting things out if you say so. For passengers, there are still many who do not dare to use it. In addition to the problem of cost is quite expensive indeed.

If you can say flying taxis are indeed a new business that can be said to be crazy at this time to be in the country of Indonesia. However, the courage of investors and the certainty of their determination about this business are quite admirable. Aren't there many crazy things that were previously underestimated, but have become phenomenal things that are successful and widely adopted today?

A challenge to the progress of the times. Indeed, it is very influential and very surprising if you think about it logically. When it comes to flying taxis, maybe it's still normal, what about the existence of Space X and the problem of space vacations that are currently under development. And various other things. I don't know what else will come in the future that we haven't felt at all before, even if it doesn't fly, it can actually be realized. But still may all continue to bring peace and a better state of the world at its core.

The world is progressing day by day. It is going to be proved soon that in the future robots will take place all over the world. I remember when I was in my childhood My grandfather told me a fiction story of these flying cars etc and now everything is happening in real.

Hope they don't leave a bad impact on today generation.
