    That shit does not look stable enough to drive on roads.

    is that third one shopped? I doubt it has a cruising altitude that high up.

    is it real?

    I searched through out the website and could not find a max altitude spec, but I’m pretty sure it cannot.

    I’m also pretty sure the only people that will use this are superheroes.

    None of them ever flew off of a tether. and they’ve been talking about this shit for like 15 years. Do not want.

    He’s been at it with the mark 3 for about 25 years. the concept is weak and so is the design of the car. the vehicle does take off, but only about 30 feet off the ground nothing higher. The “turbines” aren’t strong enough.

    What I really wanna know is:

    will it blend?

    I’m pretty sure those aren’t authentic human beings in the cabin in the third (and fourth?) pic. They look kind of like Ken dolls, with maybe a Barbie in the back seat.

    Even if these did work great & were cheap to make, the FAA would never allow the skies to be filled with these things unless the consumer models had an undefeatable autopilot function and some strict “air lane” protocols to go along with it. Try and imagine a skycar being flown by soccermoms, teenagers, the elderly, or just some knucklehead late for an appointment? Can you picture the morning commute if everyone on your block had one of these in the yard?

    Actually, I don’t think that would be necessary. Unlike roads, where the only directions you have to avoid a collision is left or right, a sky car could go in any direction. This should technically make the chances for collisions much less. and there would be less traffic overall, since I doubt everyone would be in the air.

    But the advantage, as I see it, is that getting a sky car license should be much, much harder than getting a regular drivers license… It seems like anyone can get a drivers license these days…

    I doubt it would be much worse than it is now, as Phrye points out, getting a license would mean intensive training. The FAA will just keep them at a low enough level that they would not be in the same airspace as commercial planes. Besides, I want one damnit!

    Yes I can; it would be great; less ground traffic 🙂
