Flying cars are a common site in sci-fi movies. The floating auto has won hearts of many science fiction fanatics. Be it the glass bubble from "The Jetsons" or the cab from "The Fifth Element," all these autos have mesmerized audiences for long now.
So, Volkswagen thought of creating a prototype of this futuristic car model. Dubbed as the "The People’s Car Project", the company invited people to design their car of the future. A young girl from Chengdu city, who is actually a student of gaming design and animation, came up with a brilliant concept.
The concept car utilizes magnetic force to float in middle of the air. A magnetic suspension system is used in most of these designs, but the mechanism is not very stable, and hence wide scale implementation of the cars is not possible. Some of the models also make use of repulsion technology, which is basically a type of short range anti-gravity principle, to whizz around smoothly in mid air.

So that is what is called CGI. It's a design concept someone made with 3D software. No such technology exists yet, but I hope it does some day.
