Where did I park my flying car? Dutch company PAL-V Europe NV designed a three-wheeled vehicle somewhere between a motorcycle and a helicopter.
The half-car, half-plane hybrid is built to travel as easily on the road as in the sky, converting from automobile to airplane in ten minutes.
Imagine the of benefits going wherever and whenever you want to, avoiding traffic jams, crossing lakes, rivers or mountain ranges. On the other hand, if flying cars will become generally available, how would a large number of vehicles in the air be regulated? It seems as though this would have to go hand in hand with some sort of new guidance system. Could it be the birth of a new class of means of transport? Peculiar object of the week.
