"They Promised Us Flying Cars!" Amsterdam Drone Week In 3D Low-poly Amsterdam! Electric Jetsons Flying Cars & More!


It’s the hoariest joke/lament in the tech world, shorthand for the uneven blessings of progress (according to James Fallows): Where are the flying cars? They promised us flying cars! Well, they are here, or rather, in Amsterdam during Amsterdam Drone Week, highlighting Urban Air Mobility (or UAM). Join Sci Tech Chat in Social VR regulars and NOOBs to discuss how drones, aviation, cloud, telecom, space tech, AI, governments, cybersecurity, and electrification are all coming to together to make flying taxes and pizza delivery drones a reality. Our informal online meetup in a shared 3D low-poly Amsterdam is unaffiliated with Amsterdam Drone Week, but we hope you'll attend both and share what you learn and experience.
