Drones continue to be popular and here's a new twist - a drone that you can fly in, rather than control. The Ehang 184 promises the possibility of a human-carrying air taxi and is made by a Chinese company more famous for smaller conventional remote drones.

Parrot, a well-known drone manufacturer, demonstrated the Disco drone, which looks like no other drone you have ever seen. It is a fixed-wing model, which resembles a bird or plane, rather than the usual helicopter-style hovering drones that have previously dominated the market. It will be interesting to see if these will start swooping across the skies in 2016.

From the largest people-carrier to the very smallest drone. Mota showed off the JETJAT Nano drone which fits in the palm of your hand, but is a fully functioning quadrocopter drone. Looks like great fun to fly in the park.

In next week's post we will round up all the best phones seen at CES for 2016.
