"Engineers are getting closer to the dream of the flying car". Wow. I saw that news story too.
Er, don't get me wrong, but the human population has enough trouble driving as it is. I can't imagine us trying to fly these things. We have enough junk falling out of the sky as it is.
Maybe we should work on space portals or transporters to get us from one place to another. Or, how about personal steam powered airships. They don't go as fast.
