(yet another) flying car

Damn thing just won’t go away…

This one is “practical”, though. I see. You can fly it on a light sport aircraft licence, apparently. Inevitably, it will be commercially available in “late 2011”. Orders taken now. I don’t care: I’m still tagging this as futures past.

Oh, and built by MIT students. Easy to forget they have a department of good old-fashoned Aeronautics and Astronautics when the place gets so much publicity for insectoid robots, artificial life and such. New fossil-fuel hungry modes of transport are just what we need for, er , job creation maybe?

I still prefer the one Bruce Willis uses in Fifth Element…
