For Hyundai's annual Idea Festival--a Wacky Races-style competition where engineers show off the most bonkers ideas they can dream up--a team unveiled this crazy flying car. Basically, it's a multirotor drone, except with a driver's seat and 16 rotors instead of the more conventional four.



So "car" is kind of a loose term here: it's not even being piloted by the person in the cockpit; someone with a remote control is standing by. (Hopefully someone the guy in the cockpit trusts.) Yes, cool, but just remember this is part of a swarm of inventions from Hyundai's futuristic Idea Festival. Meaning you're not going to be signing up for a flying car soon. Darn. So close. Until it's the future, see the car in action below (it comes in at about 53 seconds in). Text




This video is awesome and so is the song. You can feel the creativity and sense of fun that this event is. I mostly wanted to share the video because of the sort of flying car that does work. But because it proves intervention is not dead and is also very fun.

I guess you'll have to have to use a trailer to hall all your supplies and spares. Unless this is just for getting some munchies at the corner store. haha.

yea well... how about hyundai try to make a real car for a change?

and btw... I like my cars how they are thanks. I hope that alternate future where cars look like eggs and we wear windshields as helmets like some oversized coneheads doing the tour de france gets halted by some meteor or something...

leave cars alone... please?

Well, Honda did create ASIMO Which is an awesome humanoid robot.

The cars of today are okay. But they could be better! I don't know much about vehicles. But we should make cars more efficient.

You put the groceries through the fan blades. Chops up the salad on your way home.


I wonder how high it goes! You can park it on the roof!

I like the concept.

When I first looked at the thread title, I thought they had named this model the "Sorta".
After seeing it, that wouldn't be a bad name for it!

Hyundai didn't "make" jack squat. I've seen black and white footage probably from the 1950's with the "exact" same technology.

Nothing to see here, wake me up when you see a flying delorean.
