About Damn Time (Flying Car Update)


It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a viable flying car!:

A "flying saucer" that glides three metres above the ground and carries two people has gone into commerical production.

US company Moller International has begun to manufacture parts for its Jetsons-like personal flying pod, the M200G Volantor.

The M200G is the size of a small car and is designed to take off and land vertically.

Company founder Dr Paul Moller calls the craft "the ultimate off-road vehicle" as it is able to travel over any surface.

Keep your eyes peeled for my essay on Where's My Jetpack?: A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future that Never Arrived in the October print edition. Looks little bit of Jetsons-style sci-fi future arrived after all.

More reason on flying cars here.

UPDATE: This is actually real. See a test flight video here, or below.
