DailyDirt: Kinda Crazy Options For Personal Transportation

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The future once promised us flying cars and space hotels, but those ultra-modern conveniences haven't quite panned out (yet). Still, engineers are working on some pretty wacky transportation concepts, and personal flying devices aren't quite so impractical anymore. There are a lot of bugs to work out (and maybe some FAA regulations to comply with), but flying without a plane could be a novelty that almost anyone could try someday soon. Here are just a few examples of personal transportation that might be an exciting experience. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    From where I sit, the past promised that. May I borrow your time machine?

    flying cars

    It can be possible and there will be cars of these kinds in near future. As there are number of things which were assumed in past and believed that it can never be possible to happen but with time and intelligence of human mind those things are possible right now.
