It feels like it’s been an eternity since we first reported–to the shock of absolutely no one–that Uber was working on flying cars. The Uber Elevate Air Taxi surface was originally touted as being airborne by 2020, which we thought was a pipe dream because none of the other prototype flying cars ever really materialized… until Hyundai and Uber unveiled the full-scale VTOL (vertical take off and landing) S-A1 air taxi concept at CES yesterday. Developed by Hyundai’s Urban Air Mobility Division for the Uber Elevate service, this absolute unit of a plane has a cruising speed of 180 mph, cruising altitude of 1,000 – 2,000 feet, can tackle trips up to 60 miles and is entirely electric. The concept will only have 4 passenger seats in the cabin when it finally takes off, but that could increase as Hyundai plans to phase out human pilots in favor of automation.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
