DailyDirt: Flying Cars Are Here!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The future has pretty much arrived already. We've been waiting for flying cars and super-smart computers, but if we're willing to accept some flaws, these things exist today. (And if you believe the press releases of Lockheed Martin, we'll only need to wait a few more years for practical fusion!) Here are just a few more flying cars (or roadable aircraft) that could be roaming around neighborhood streets. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Yeah, there's already more than enough people who shouldn't have a regular license causing crashes left and right, the last thing they need is another dimension to cause havoc in.

    A car crash on the road is bad enough, now imagine a 'car' crash mid-air, over a crowd, home, or building. The hardware side might be getting closer to being viable, but there are a lot of more important aspects that need to be dealt with before 'flying cars' are rolled out for the general market.
