That does look like fun. I only have one problem with it, with all the idiot drivers on the roads - what is going to happen when they take to the air? LOL

I think in the near future, we will see these as a normal means of transportation.As far as the idiots go,any mistakes they make would most likely be terminal. They wouldn't get a second chance to be an idiot,I would think.
I would love to own one. :thumbsup:

I'd love to own one too - but only with some sort of invisible 'buffer zone' around it so the idiots don't take me down with them - eep!
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

no ones reminds me of the Original Batmobile. but I prefer the X-Hawk as it is the only "flying car" to date to use vertical take off and thrust management. only issue I saw was that it was only a 2 seater.
