The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) might be completely digital this year for obvious reasons, but that doesn’t mean the annual pageantry has come to a halt. This year, General Motors decided to unveiled their latest and greatest, the Flying Cadiallc eVOTL Concept you see here. This incredibly futuristic and fully-autonomous air taxi is reminiscent of today’s drones in terms of operation, but it stands to reason that it’s also a complete flight of fancy given the technology and experience required to get a vehicle like this off the ground. As Michael Simcoe, GM VP of Global Design said, “It is a concept designed for the moment when time is of (the) essence, and convenience is everything. You’ve been at the office and now you need to get to a meeting across town. The Vertile meets you on the roof and drops you at the Vertiport closest to your destination. It uses a 90- kwh (battery powering an) EV motor to power four rotors as well as air-to-air and air-to-ground communications. As a passenger it represents personal space and a panoramic view of the world passing beneath you. It is a glimpse of what autonomy and Cadillac luxury might look like in the not-too-distant future.” Honestly, we’re gonna be the first people in line if they can make this concept a reality.

This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
