Will flying cars fill the skies in the foreseeable future ?

Recommended Posts

So many companies around the world are building flying cars. Do you think they will eventually become a mainstream mode of transport , in our life time ? Why yes and why not. If not, then what does it take to overcome inorder to come to fruition ? Discuss, thanks.

might be applicable in other countries where space is not a problem.

In singapore, it will be a big challenge. 

1. Too many tall buildings  

2. Flying cars need space to land and park.  Look at our current situation, where to find space to land and park?  our stupid roads and lanes are one lane or two lanes.  it will be hazardous for flying cars to land

3. We cant even support Electric cars now with very limited charging ports.  I assume flying cars are also by electric powered.

4. Sleepy LTA will take decades to come up with something to support flying cars.  First question they will ask among themselves is "how to charge them"?

I'm looking forward to teleportation. No more ownership to what flying cars or steep learning curve or facing more laws, penalties, insurance, coe or whatever fxxk associated to it.

Teleportation. That will be the day.

Teleportation will never be allowed freely for public use as long as the potential for terrorism exists. Teleportation makes it too easy to transport an explosive device to a remote location with just seconds to detonation. No suicide bombers needed, even. 

It will perhaps only be allowed with limited portals of origin and destination, all with strict security screening, at least as stringent and onerous as we're subjected to at commercial airports now. That basically removes the convenience of a self initiated journey from anywhere to anywhere (what we enjoy with a private car now) and the time and hassle for the security screening adds more inconvenience. It becomes suitable only for long distances, where the time for security procedures is tolerable in relation to the magnitude of the distance, but even so, there may be complications such as the Coriolis effect which may make travel between very different latitudes troublesome. But even if all the technical issues are resolved, human factors will still make this a risky endeavour. 

Human nature is the real reason we can't have nice things.

Unless when the car fails, it will float and bob in the sky, else this idea will never fly (pun intended)

PMDs already pose so many problems, can expect flying cars to be worse, right ?  

Going to JB, though, will be a breeze. Lol.

Actually I dun think so...flying cars will be a hedonistic luxury, only rich men like Throttle can afford...

It will be priced out of bounds for low class low SES hooligans like me [laugh]..aka the troublemakers and chow ah bengs terrorizing the poor pedestrians
