Uber enlists UT Austin engineers to help develop its flying taxis

Uber has already partnered with NASA to develop new air traffic managements systems, and also gotten the US Army onboard to develop advanced rotor technologies. That latter collaboration now welcomes the UT into the fold, which will work with Uber and the US Army Research Labs to build the fast spinning bits that will lift the vehicles into the air.
