From Fiction to Fact: The Flying Car.
The Fiction: In Hanna-Barbera’s classic cartoon, The Jetsons, family man George Jetson commutes to work in his bubble-topped flying aero-car. During his blissfully traffic-free commute, George drops off family members for their daily activities. Upon arriving at Spacely Space Sprockets his aero-car neatly transforms into a briefcase. How cool is that?
The Fact: While anyone has yet to build a car that can transform into a briefcase, the flying car is here—and apparently it handles like a motorcycle. Dutch company PAL-V (watch video below) has created a flying car, called the PAL-V ONE. Drive it like a car, or unfold the single rotor and you’re ready to fly. No flight plan required.
