I DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING FLYING CARS!  There's a certain finality that comes along with it.  It's as if an ALIEN INVASION is next or eternal damnation.  WHAT'S A FLYING CAR FOR ANYWAY?  It's just too science fiction for me!  Scary!  :rolleyes:

umm yes they do use air cussion they fly up with 4 fans like turbines so they are safe and they do 28 miles per gallon so the economical price isnt that high didnt you guys read that artical?

Well, it would be cool, if they could make them eco-friendly, and running on hydrogen fuel cells...then and only then would i buy one, otherwise, I can imagine these being real petrol guzzlers...and bringing out new cars that are not based on fuell cells is not a smart move for the envoronment or for their company, since it is less likely people will buy th ecar if other hydrogen fual cell cars are being over-hyped...if u get what i mean...


RUFIOKID

yeah i know what you mean they probaly will use hydrogen fuel cells im not really sure on all of this im 50/50 on most of it

OMG, that is so cool! This will... be bad because cars would be swerving around and under each other in mid-air, and they would hit buildings.

 

Also, what about signs and those lines on the road? Not possible in air.

 

Bad idea, you flying car makers. Lol.

Well, I got bored so I did some thinking. And I came up with a question. Couldn't a personal small aircraft be called a flying car? It can travel on ground, albeit not very fast. Just think about, you would be the coolest person in the neighborhood driving a Cessna Sky Hawk down the block, got your hummer going with 50 Cent - In Da Club....*stops daydreaming* Back to the topic, a flying car is capable, you just need to figure how to fold up wings. And you need how to correlate the turbine rotation with the internal combustion engine. Other than that and some safety hazards, it should be a breeze.


brent

how will they be powered because scientists belive that the worlds oil supply will run out in 2020 and the world as we know it will end :P


Yipster

2020 is a little too early. There is no way the world oil supply would run out. We would have been even more aware. I am just hoping that it doesn't run out till I am dead.(yes, i noe i am conceited for thinking that)

I overheard my cousins boyfriend talking about a flying car. I thought he was just kidding but its true. I really can't imagine having people fly on cars in the air. I guess you can get to your place faster than usual. I wonder if it'll work on water too. I dont' know maybe the flying over water and the ground is a different thing. But it will be a milestone since the creation of the wheel.

I think it would be better as a hover-car. Otherwise, it's as bad as any of the other contraptions that combine every technology existing into a compact package. For a car to fly very far and use that much energy, it would need to be bigger, with larger engines. The fuel would need to be fuel efficient or we'd have a larger pollution problem in not too long. Added to that, there would have to be limits to how high the car could however to avoid it slamming into buildings or anything else. They'd need specialized highways or some form of construction. This might be a great idea for our army or for the police to negotiate rugged terrain or catch runaway criminals. But they wouldn't be able to travel very far without becoming bulky. And that's all I can come up with right now.


RUFIOKID

okay the flying car folds ups its wings when its lading and taking off its a very small think of a honda but like 20% smaller and it uses turbines and doesent use much gas and it can fly over water at 350 miles per hour making it the fastest public trasportation soon before you know it (reply to that guy who said the things with the red lines: I ment the car is made with a internal map inside of it to put it in a easy way it has certain red lights it has to follow so it wont go out of its way like think of thoose cars at disney land they have a little metal railing to keep them on path thats how the flying car is programed and its crash safe if one car is comming at it ,it will automaticly go faster or slower and it will take out the controll from you so you dont crash it from reflexes so its system is advance for its time ) also the flying car will be 10x faster then a car since it flys over buildings and it doesent have to follow freeways and it goes icredebly fast. well i think i answer your questions.


Focus

i think that flying cars would clutter the sky too much and cause higher pollution throughout the world :D


sportadic22

havent heard that but.. i dont doubt u.. i just didnt thikn it to happen this soon..like testing.. THAT SICKif u could message me the site or somthinwhen i saw back to the future i was like YEAAAAA i want tat..and the flying skate board HAHAH!! thatts asome


novaforme

Well i drive a 65 Ford Mustang and im not giving it up for a car that flys.

erm its with hydro cells and no worries it wont pollute the sky.. and the link for the website is somehwere in the 1 or second page go look for it

MechVegita

I have also wonderd thisAre they safeWhat will they run onhow high up with the car be from the groundhow fas they will gowhy am I asking so many questions.=Mechvegita=

Flying cars have existed for much longer than you all realize. Several years ago I saw a documentary on one of those TV channels owned by Discovery which featured a vehicle which could fly like an airplane with its wings extended, and drive like a car with its wings folded. I believe it was a turboprop. It wasn't as nearly decked out with gadgets as this new vehicle seems to be, but it is essentially the same thing.


MystiK1337

hmmm.... I doubt that they will actually be mass produced. How will we fuel these things? Thats the main issue from what i can see. also.... Flying Cars.....then it wouldnt be a car anymore :)


wild20

I didn't think it would take to long to devolope one. They have had flying cars out since the 70s. Just needed to perfect it. I have seen pictures of the first "flying" cars that came out, they were pretty scary looking.They have some pretty wild designs out there. I have seen ones that look like they came from mars, and others that are really sleek designs. They will most likely cost a fortune though when they come out.


conret

I found out something new the other day there is new flying cars currently being tested and made, it goes around 350 mph and its being made by toyota or honda not sure it has 4 turbines and its comming out in 2010 or 2006 some where in the middle but its really cool looking  :)

that is cool but the problem is that bush said that he will not allow that the flying cars be released to the public because it will be to dangerous and that it will have a negative impact on the government and I have a feeling this will not be only Bush's words but the words of others. I also agree that flying car should not be released because I don't want cars crashing into my house and police cars over my house. I guess we are not ready for the future and that our minds are too far out of our time. It is not bad that it was invented and there might be special places to fly them but if you think about it if we release flying cars the people would have to get a pilot's license and I dont think people would like to go through all that raining and there is no reason to.

A suppose a terrorist could equip a flying car with a spy nozzle as a method to distribute biological and chemical weapons.
