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.
- Burt Rutan has designed a flying hybrid car that can fit into a standard one-car garage. Interestingly, this Model 367 BiPod isn’t quite as far along in development as SpaceShipOne. [url]
- The AirMule is a vertical take-off-and-land vehicle that doesn’t look ready to fly anywhere near residential areas yet. Maybe that’s why its designers suggest using it for pumping heavy water into damaged nuclear reactors? [url]
- The European Union is looking into Personal Aerial Vehicles (PAVs) with a project called myCopter. It sounds strange that <60 mile flying trips could be more efficient than driving a car… [url]
