Flying Cars Are Here (No Joke!)
Last week, it was virtual reality. Today, it's flying cars. The future is here, people, and we can't wait to see what's next.
We’re the first to be skeptical when it comes to Jetsons-style contraptions that are going to Change the Future. But this looks like the real deal. California-based SkyTran has been hard at work developing a new transit system in which cars will magnetically glide 20 to 30 feet above the ground along elevated tracks. The flying vehicles will debut in Tel Aviv later this month, and if all goes well, they’re expected to hit U.S. cities in 2018. They’re cheaper (roughly $25,000 to $30,000) and more environmentally friendly, and — fingers crossed — they’ll get rid of all our traffic nightmares. So long, Uber.
