Flying cars take another step forward

Post by Ben Mothafuckin' Reilly on Fri Oct 03, 2014 2:28 am



Organisers of Vienna’s Pioneers Festival, an annual conference for future technology and digital entrepreneurship, announced on Thursday that they would unveil the prototype of “the world’s most advanced flying car” on 29 October.

An earlier prototype of the Flying Roadster by Slovakian company AeroMobil reportedly took its first test flight in October last year. The latest version will be tested a day before its premiere, on 28 October.

Company co-founder Juraj Vaculik said that AeroMobil had sped up the prototyping process after having seen “enthusiastic reactions of the global engineering and design community”.

Weighing 450 kg, with carbon-fibre wings that fold behind the cabin and a flight top speed of 124mph, the two-seater promises to be more of a flying sports car than a flying family car.

Flying cars don't take steps, they fucking fly, you stupid fucking dumbass shithead me.

And I guess if we're going to stick with that weak metaphor, we should point out that it must not have been a very big step because I'm still driving a fucking land-based vehicle ...

Don’t be so hard on yourself! You have also pointed out to me that birds fly, and you were right about that!

Set a reminder on your phone for the year 2030 and come back to this thread to tell yourself you were right! cheers
