    Flying Car Prototype Flies...

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    So how many of you would spend $194,000 on a two seat car that can cruise at 115 MPH with a 500 mile range? The only problem is that you can't just pull off to the side of the road to make that emergency pit stop...

    Hah well then i guess it would be a good ideer to always be two people in it when you're taking a flight and some extra gas..... One for stearing the "plain" and one to refill.

    Does it use the same engine when it's flying and driving and if it does and it sounds like other plains i don't wont to be walking a dog and have one of those cruising by >.< or to be on a bike either......


    But maybe piss everyone else off by buying one

    Seen it on Discovery Science among other prototypes. The designs are pretty clever ... and that's pretty much all I remember.

    Oh, and some engineers/scientists plan on making a "virtual path" for every car that would fly; that is, when you want to fly from point A to point B, the computer will make a path and the car would automatically travel in it.

    I seriously don't think it's a good idea, though. We wouldn't want air gangs or cops chasing a mindless teen in the air sort of situations ... would we.
    ..Or cars crashing onto buildings.

    You answered your own concern:

    That's exactly why they would implement that.

    It would be cooler if it was jet powered, and the wings would fold up better. Also it doesn't look too stable as a car. Cool idea though, as i always dreamed about this, as i was stuck in traffic(though my dreams involved the "back to the future" idea or the last starfighter).

    Haha no, I meant Without having a specific location, you could still levitate, and some idiot person would crash anyway.

    Know what I'm sayin'?

    I'll pass this, gonna wait for the hovering cars without tires. That's much cooler. :P
    Additionally, I don't really like the style of those cars. And they are way too expensice. It will take a while until such a car will be allowed to be driven by everyone. But it's a good beginning!
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    Yeah and the DL system would have a big overhall.

    Now every one would have to be flight trained and privite propety will come into play.

    Whats to stop me from landing in someones back yard or on an office buliding.

    The list just gos on.
