    That looks terribly impracticable. I like the one in the OP better.

    All of them are terribly impractical. I like that they still have not written laws to govern such machines, so any asshole with a few million to burn can jump in one and go.

    I cannot see anything going wrong with these. After all, people drive so well in 2 dimensions; let's give them a 3rd one to deal with.

    Think i remember.. nah..

    But anyway, these fucking things, so what? COMING TO A DEALERSHIP NEAR YOU IN TWENTY NEVER FUCKING EVER BECAUSE IT'S NEVER GONNA FUCKING HAPPEN!!!!

    Oh that is a classic that is! that is one of the classic Skycars a 4 pod hover and flight vehicle, too bad the closest anyone will ever get to that is the Iphone controlled model craft, anyway, if you wanna fly badly, goto aviation school and save up money for your own personal plane, which means you need to work hard and get yourself a good job.

    Or just make like the Mythbusters and build your own ultra light.
    Fuck these Flying Cars, Flying Cars ARE GAY because nobody ever flies them.
    But i am not complaining, we got enough fucking people who should never be allowed to drive to begin with on the road, the last thing we need is a constant stream of Sky Cars crashing onto people and killing them on a day to day basis.

    Not THAT debatable, flying requires constant attention and discipline to keep things from going out of control, NOW Autopilot is taken into account but all an autopilot really does is lock the course and maintain the altitude and keeps the aircraft steady by adjusting it's pitch roll or yaw so it does not flip or go off course, so you can take a piss. no problem in Airliners because they are up high and there's nothing to worry about but other airplanes and midway there's not going to be allot of them.

    Flying around in a city area at a low altitude, you can easily imagine people smsing or using their cell phones and then crashing.

    when they can make a car which drives itself without being a hazard, then we might start to consider getting these bitches working.

    Then you'll see that it isn't taut. Who the fuck would get in that untested death machine without taking some sort of safety precautions first?

    Ronny, you could do this just as easily by taking your dad's Lancia out of the garage where it's been sitting for years because they don't make parts for them anymore, bolting a 7-foot-wide boomerang-shaped plywood to the hood and JATO units to the roof, pushing it to the edge of a cliff, getting in, release the parking brake and fire off the JATOs.

    Oh wait, there are no cliffs in New Jersey.
