Yet another flying car?

I wonder though: with things like Spaceship One around, maybe it is finally something that might work? And Moller has been around for years, too...

Probably should've left this thread alone, but anyways...

$194k is really a great price, figuring a cheaper new car costs around $15k and a new 2 seater Cessna costs around $250k.

Hm, but apparently you can get a pre owned ultra light airplane http://www.lightaircrafts.com/used.htm for much less.

So you'd pay 15.000 for the car and 5.000 to 100.000 (or more if you like) for the plane. I mean you'd want a second "normal" car anyway.

BTW: I wait for the first vertical starting flying car, so i can escape traffic jams  ;D

I wait until they can completely automate the system - I don't like most of my fellow drivers on the ground - no WAY will I like them in the air! hehe

How about just bugging the system of their cars by spamming them with viruses?If,I will write a very good antivir program...There would be really good sales... :D
