If you make it to Dubai this summer, you might have the chance to catch a brand new type of self-driving vehicle. One that flies.At today’s World Government Summit, the head of the city’s Roads & Transportation Agency, Mattar al-Tayer, announced plans to introduce a passenger-carrying drone service. The one-person drones could be ferrying commuters between predetermined checkpoints by July; the agency showed off the vehicle at an event, according to an AP report.

It’s a 500-pound personal aircraft, with room for one passenger weighing up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds) and a small suitcase in a separate compartment.
