Ok so us civilians aren't getting our Jetson on just yet, but this is a first step towards going commercial.
Reports say we're about two years away from tactical vehicles for the US military, that will both drive and fly!! Makes me wish I could still join the forces.
These will have a range of piloting capabilities .. human pilot, human assisted or full auto pilot mode where it could be used to drop troops off in a war zone and then fly back to base man less.
This will be an excellent tool for rapid strikes, raids and reconnaissance missions.
To help avoid detection, the Transformer’s will have quiet engines so they won't be easily detected while cruising or at takeoff or landing.
Read all about these bad boys here.. and dream of a day we get our flying cars .. of course that could bring many nightmares of car accidents over my house!! Yikes ;)
