Will 2017 be the year of the flying car? AeroMobil may agree

It’s 2016 and we’re still miles away from what the past thought it would be like now. Time we caught up, you would think. For starts, we need to have flying cars, as of yesterday. So we have the AeroMobil 3.0. This is supposed to be the flying car of the future (read: 2017. Yes, it’s here. Or is it?). CEO Juraj Vaculik announced the commercialization of the car by next year in Brussels.

The car looks absolutely space-age and the Slovakian company wows to make this more than just an experiment. The vehicle is a two-seater but it’s hardly something to complain about. It is presently on display at the Justus Lipsius building in Brussels till August 1st.

The uses of the car are aplenty. Other than impressing chronic gold-diggers, the vehicle will find its purpose as a life-saver in emergency situations. Of course, it will be a challenge ensuring that it meets the compliance needs of an aircraft and a car but once that’s sorted, we will be just as beady-eyed now as we were when we learned about space tourism.
