Let’s not deny it, we’re still obsessed with the idea of owning a flying car, which is one of the reasons most of us let out a longing sigh every time we watch the Jetsons fly away in one of these contraptions. Thanks to the efforts of Terrafugia, this dream could soon be fulfilled and the future of the automotive industry could come to us quicker than we expected! The cars being developed can take off and land autonomously.
Speaking about the same at the MIT Tech Conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Terrafugia co-founder and CEO Carl Dietrich said, “We want something that is statistically safer than driving a car. We think that’s possible. It needs to be faster than driving a car. It needs to be simpler to operate than a plane. It needs to be more convenient than driving a car today!” With this, the future does seem upwardly mobile and bright!
