I think my favorite is the central blade/flying wing one on the upper right corner.  Maybe Amazon will adopt one of these designs to deliver my packages!  And of course it can add to all the big data  already swarming around me.

One of the designs on the sheet reminds me of some aircraft I sketched out when I was in high school in the '80s.

Yes, there's a lot more flexibility and takeoff when a runway is not required.
