CES 2016 has definitely had the future of travel out there front and centre, but nothing has been more eye-catching than drone-maker EHang's absolutely bonkers 184.

The EHang 184 is unlike anything you've seen before. It's a completely autonomous one-seat drone that promises to be the replacement of the car.

Ok so it's not a promise that it can really deliver on but truthfully, you'll be hard-pressed to find a person that would turn down the idea of owning one of these.

While it might look like a giant toy, EHang say their marketing poster boy can actually do real things. For example it can fly up to 60mph for around 25 minutes making it more than useful for a quick run down to the shops.

The system is purely electric and also purely autonomous so don't think about taking the reigns anytime soon as EHang simply doesn't trust you.

According to the company they concept was designed to be purely self-driving based on the fact that humans do crash a lot and the 184 isn't likely to be cheap.
