  • Someone has already invented the flying car(automobile). Look it up.
  • Someone already has and its planned to go on sale soon http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/driving/features/article5483226.ece
  • They've been around since the 70's, and the idea is stupid anyway. None of the models make any kind of sense, none of the working products will be anything more than rich people's toys, and the whole idea was begged for by people living in the unrealistic Jetsons fantasy world.
  • Have you not seen the movie "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer"? Don't, it's not very good. But it does have a flying car in it.
  • It has already been done.
  • Have you seen how people drive on the ground? Do you really want them tooling along in the air, brushing their hair, talking on their cellphones, primping their eyelashes and flying straight into your apartment, or an accident not only resulting in two wrecked "cars" with commensurate casualties, but also two wrecked "cars" crashing back to Earth and landing on your roof? Think about it.......
  • I think its present!
  • If you mean when flying cars will be as commonplace as regular cars are today, like in 'Back to the Future' or 'The Jetsons' -- highly maneuverable and able to hover -- then I'd say at least 100 years. Maybe 2 or 3 centuries for that kind of technology to develop. Energy generation and storage will have to be solved first. Gravity is strong, air is thin, and humans are fragile!
  • Soon, I hope. It's been on magazine covers since the '30s. http://www.theonion.com/content/video/mean_automakers_dash_nations_hope
  • I saw one recently on TV
  • it has been done long ago...if you go to the aircraft museum in Seattle, WA you can see one. It was built in the early 1950s and was flown many times. The problem was getting it certified in other than "experimental"
  • Just happened. I saw a test drive/fly just a couple of weeks ago on television. It ain't winning any design awards anytime soon.
