DailyDirt: Flying With The Greatest Of Ease

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The Segway was originally billed as a revolutionary new way to travel, but after it was revealed, it didn’t seem anywhere near as cool as a flying car (or hoverboard). While everyone is more concerned about gas mileage nowadays, there are still some dreamers out there working on personal flying vehicles. Here are just a few examples of some ways to get yourself off the ground.

If you have some more free time, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Building one's own "air car"

In the October 1974 issue of Boys’ Life magazine, on page 70, there was a mail order ad whereby a reader could obtain for US$3.00 plans for an “air car.” Among other things, the air car could lift “up to 200 pounds.” (Or, for those using the metric system, approximately 90.71 kg.) In a 1998 issue of Zillions magazine (which was like Consumer Reports but with kids testing toys and similar items), a review was done wherein Zillions mail ordered plans for an “air car” and had a 9-year-old kid build the project with his father to see how well it actually worked.
