Airborne!

There's something special about the feeling of lifting off, supported only by the air. The vision of a society where everyone has access to the skies by means of simple and inexpensive aircraft has been around for a long time.



Thanks to this inventor, maybe we won't have to wait for The Jetson's version of the future - but don't hold your breath either. This unit looks pretty unstable! An old aviation adage seems to apply here: "Don't fly any higher than your're prepared to fall."

Looks practical... and quiet as well!

I'm sure you've already seen this company who is currently developing a personal sky car, but just in case you haven't, it's a fun browse:

WOW! Isn't the other adage to not fly the first version of anything?
