It's a Bird, It's a Plane...It's Skycar
What technological advance are we all secretly hoping for? Two words: flying car. Moller International is creating the M400 Skycar, a personal vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle. Yup, a real flying car or a volantor, as the website defines it. Moller is currently testing the Skycar and hopes to put it into production soon. According to Moller, limited numbers of the Skycar are expected to be available within the next three years. They promise that the car will be able to hit speeds of over 350 MPH. The car is a few years away from FAA certification, at this point they've only done test flights with a tether attached. First models will most likely cost around $500,000 and the driver will need a pilot's license. Unlike the Gibbs Aquada and other water cars, it's not much on land but still, it's a flying car.
