DailyDirt: When Cars Fly!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Visions of the future usually seem to include flying cars filling the sky, but given the number of terrestrial car accidents, it doesn't seem like such a great idea just yet. Still, plenty of folks are working on various kinds of personal aircrafts that could turn into somewhat practical flying cars. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Check Jacque Fresco's ideas and models for the future (doesn't mean THAT is the future).

    Flying cars

    Terrafugia's Transition vehicle is already developed and awaiting production. Check it out here: http://terrafugia.com/
    Those MIT grads certainly don't start with the small stuff.
