Tech is sure amazing and opens all of us up to our Jetsons and Back to the Future type fantasies and dreams. The video shows the dude driving the car on regular streets with the wings tucked in. It's pretty cool. I still wonder though how ready and willing governments (especially the USA) are to allow take off and landing on any street at any time.........obviously that's an exaggeration but maybe it's not too far off from what their big challenge will be after the tech is proven reliable, etc.?

Good question. :hmmm
I have yet to see any 'celebrities' attempting to use these things. A lot of them have their own private landing strips...like John Travolta and Tom Cruise. I am sure as soon as we see that happening, prices may start to become affordable.
If we weren't in the end times and the world economy about to topple that is. :doh

I laugh. Can you imagine our world with these things..........???
People can't even drive today's cars on the roads safely, nor drive within the laws and rules.
Get enough of these up in the air and they will be crashing into each other and falling to earth.
Then there's the whole matter of people driving/flying them while talking on their phones or texting.
Talk about stupid.
I hope God doesn't allow it to go that far........
