Witricity is a kind of electric field that is able to light a light bulb at about 300 feet, or possibly 300 meters. I think it can be narrow beamed with antennas. Witricity was discovered at MIT.
Drones could use witircity to fly. So, have shaped drones precede a driving vehicle to change the air
slipstream around a vehicle, creating better aerodynamics than previously possible. That benefits mileage.
Also, the drones could be like space (area) buffers causing an area around the vehicle that a self driving vehicle could use to noticeably reduce risk, as human drivers would see a "virtual vehicle perimeter"
amplifies the application of witricity!
nifty new looking vehicles!

||Star wars could have baked this with a word from Anakin about superber aerodynamics on a pod racer from causing the engines to do a front swirl around thing.
||How is this better than aerospikes protruding from the front
of the vehicle?
||On a bicycle, a wave of drones carving a designed slipstream would be a wonderful advantage.
