Flying Car One Step Closer To Reality [VIDEO]
Have you ever wanted to own a flying car?
Some of the futuristic items we dreamed about as kids are available now, like the robot vacuum, cash machines and watching movies from a device you can hold in your hand.
Well, now the flying car is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Last month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration granted the Transition Roadable Aircraft a series of special exemptions which has effectively made the plane-car hybrid street legal.
The Transition was developed by a team of MIT-trained researchers for the company Terrafugia. The two-seater is able to morph from a car to a plane in about 30 seconds. It also runs on regular unleaded gas, instead of more expensive rocket fuel.
The flying car will run for about $250,000. Terrafugia estimates it will be available to the public by the end of 2012.
Watch the following video and dream about having one of these in your garage some day.
