Uber has said that it plans to have cars that can vertically take off of the street. It is similar to the helicarriers you see in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though downsized a couple billion square feet. They take off vertically and their propellers change directions to make it move forward/ backwards. (Don’t ask us how it turns, because we don’t have the slightest idea.)
Last week, a Slovakian company named AeroMobil propelled its Flying Car at the super car show in Monaco.
“The first vehicle is intended to create a buzz,” Stefan Vadocz, AeroMobil’s chief communications officer said to Newsweek. The car can fly up to 1,000 km at the top speed of 300 km/h.
There is one question everyone is still wondering: What if something goes wrong??? AeroMobil’s car comes with the latest technology in vehicle recovery ballistic parachutes. It is designed to bring an airborne vehicle back to ground safely should the pilot choose to deploy it.
Aeromobil is one of at least a dozen big companies experimenting with small and handy flying cars. Google Founder Larry Page is working on a flying car called “the Kitty Hawk” but that is a story for another time.
