For decades, futurists have predicted (and science fiction types have just assumed) that we're on the verge of having flying cars. It's pretty much the standard prediction. And yet, despite years of hype, the idea of the flying car has always been the technology of tomorrow. One of the most hyped up players in the space, Moller, has been talking about flying cars for years and years, without much to show for it. Now the company is admitting that after running through $40 million or so, it has "substantial doubt" that it will be able to continue as a going concern. Given how long the company has been at it without much to show for it, this isn't all that surprising. However, it means that our Jetsons-like future may still be a ways off.
