Coming soon to a Howard Frankland traffic jam near you. As kids, we watched The Jetsons and dreamed. Well it looks like the promise of flying cars may be realized within our lifetime! NEC Corp showed their “flying car” just outside Tokyo today, according to AP. It had the look of a giant drone. It has 4 loud big propellers that did indeed get the car to lift off the ground. There was nobody inside but it got about 10 feet up and hovered for about a minute. Sorry the video isn’t in English, but you get the idea! Where would you take it first? Would you soar over the mess on Highway 19? Breeze over I4 to Disney? Lift off and skip the traffic on 275?
