Uber signed a deal with NASA today to develop a flying car project that could take off in some big cities as early as 2020.
The ride-sharing service announced at a tech conference in Portugal that it has signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA with the goal of creating vertical take-off and landing vehicles that will fly at low altitudes. The service will be called Uber Elevate. The company wants to try the project in several cities by 2020 and have it up and running in time for the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles.
Remember when 2020 sounded SO far into the future? Well, it's only 2 years from now. So, yeah, I feel old.
