No Flying Car Yet, But Here, How About A Flight Simulator Of What It Would Be Like?
from the chitty-chitty-bang-bang dept
For years and years, futurists have predicted an age of "flying cars," that has never come about. Sure, there are plenty of startups out there working on such things, and a prototype here or there -- but the futuristic age of flying cars are still the stuff of myth and legend. Now, yet another company claims it will soon have what it calls "roadable aircraft" available, but you're going to have to wait two or three years (though, they're more than willing to take a deposit now). However, in the meantime, they're offering a flight simulator version of what it would be like if their vehicles actually existed. They call them roadable aircrafts, since they're meant more as flying vehicles, only to be driven short distances on roads (such as from your garage to an airport). So, if you're keeping track... you still can't buy a flying car. But, you can download a version of their vehicle if you happen to already own one particular brand of flight simulator. Somehow, that doesn't make us seem anywhere closer to having flying cars.
