Flying Cars, Priced to Move
Times are tough in the flying car business. The million-dollar pricetag tends to keep the customers away. The regulatory headaches are intense. And it's not like the things are rolling off the production line, anyway. So rather than roll out their full-fledged, four-passenger, 375 mile-per-hour (lack of) roadster, Moller International executives are taking a more measured approach. They're building a flying saucer instead. [continued with video]

Does anyone know the song used in that video? Now there's ambient music that would be nice to read to.

I think the quotes said it was "Deep Breakfast" by Ray Lynch.

Moller makes me laugh. He's finally coming to the realization that his flying car is not going to be viable in two of his lifetimes.

Just in time to watch the oil supply dry up.

Now he can work on a hydrogen fusion model.

That's a pretty useless machine.

That is pretty awesome, creating control surfaces must have been a nightmare, well done. One can only think of all the critisism Leonardo Davinci had to put up with when he made the first drawing of a helicopter, look at it now!

I'll think about them a little more when they trust them enough not to be on a harness

Of course it did take another 450 years to build one.

But, since you are a fellow Moller, we'll be nice. :biggrin:
