No, it's not a quad-copter nor a helicopter.
Check out this battery powered, 16 bladed, single person flying device.

Fly me to the moon and let me walk among the stars.... ;)
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

 That great. Yes i will wait for the next one. Those blade look really sharp. A cowling around the props can give 40% increase in hover power.
 But may interfere with long range flights.

Yes aside from the fact it is probably quicker to just walk it's pretty cool. Those blades would worry me too, just one hitch and I am splattered across the field.  :o
