Cool site, I must say I love the idea of hovering cars.

I especially like the design on this 1963 Ford.

I think in the future we will have flying cars, no doubt.

I mean the skycar apperantly allready works.

Oh I sure hope so, cities can't be too chaotic for me..

Hovercars are very very cool imo, though they're still parts of people's fantasy, the fact that you see them so much in movies really tells that peole would want to have them.

 

Hm, now I am reminded of a movie teaser/trailer which shows the dangers of driving recklessly in a hovercar (bumping into office buildings on wide corners for example).. anybody who knows which clip I'm talking about?

Hoover cars do really exist!

There are some amators busy on it, I read about a year ago in 'Kijk' a dutch sience magazine, and the development of the hover-car was in a very late stadium. The design was also nearly perfect but a bit too round...

I will look for some more information when I find some time.

Problem I think is that you'd need a perfectly working computer guided system to prevent crashes. The skycar will never ever be a big success purely because of the dangers involved in flying something at those speeds.

I hope I'm wrong, I think they are great, but in the same way that Ferrari's are great.. there's no big market for them and I doubt there ever will be.

Never say never.

I belive in the future anything is possible, I also hope your wrong, no offence Renzsu. ;) Maybe in the begining the skycar will have the same market as the Ferrari does, but as we progress so will the technology.

And our grandchildren will be crusing around in there aircars as we do in ours today. Thats the jobb of an engineer, scientist and designer, to make whats not posible today, posible tomorow.

 

Look at the concept of wheel beeing replaced by the sphear

in the movie I, ROBOT. That has potencial. I beat there are people on it as we speak. And thats so cool.
