I can remember being a kid and when my family asked me what kind of car i wanted when i get older, i would say "none of them im going to have a
flying car by the time i drive". The funny thing is i wasnt the only one who said that i think the reason i started saying that is because one day i
was talking to my grandma about driving and she said "by the time your driving everyone will be flying their cars". I think most people will say
the same thing about when they were younger,i feel like alot of people 20 years ago would sware wed have flying cars by the year 2000.
Its funny how wrong we all were. Im not going to speculate whether or not we have the capabilities to mass manufacture a flying car or not (or how
the government would handle that, having civilians in the sky at all times seems like a perfect setup for their famous line that would sound something
like "having civilians in unrestricted airspace is a threat to national security!"), but i will say that the first video of that car/helicopter is
very very cool. I really like the design for it and i love how the video actually shows it being flown and not some computer generated simulation. I
would like to know more about its safety features though, In the video it seems that guy was reaching very high altitude and id like to know what kind
of safety measures are in place incase something goes wrong.
