For everyone like me, who is disappointed that we've made it to 2021 but still don't have the things that science fiction promised us (you know, like teleporters, jet packs, robot butlers, and a cure for stupidity), well here's one thing we dreamed of as kids that is being made possible, flying cars!





"A prototype flying car has completed a 35-minute flight between international airports in Nitra and Bratislava, Slovakia.

The hybrid car-aircraft, AirCar, is equipped with a BMW engine and runs on regular petrol-pump fuel.

Its creator, Prof Stefan Klein, said it could fly about 1,000km (600 miles), at a height of 8,200ft (2,500m), and had clocked up 40 hours in the air so far.

It takes two minutes and 15 seconds to transform from car into aircraft.

In the air, the vehicle reached a cruising speed of 170km/h.

It can carry two people, with a combined weight limit of 200kg (31 stone).

But unlike drone-taxi prototypes, it cannot take off and land vertically and requires a runway.

That thing needs a Batmobile makeover. Would easily fit into the Dark Knight's garage.

Man vs Technology. I'm not that excited since it's a two way street. Technology can enhance our life or doom it depending on how it's used. Dead or alive I hope for the best with humanity in that endeavor. Though I also prepare for the worst.
