I’m pretty sure every one of ya guys have seen a flying car in a movie and went “what if we had them in real life..” Well, a Massachusetts company founded by MIT graduates are getting ready to test-drive (or fly) it’s flying car/drivable aircraft. It has foldable wings, which makes it convert from a road vehicle to an air one. I was hoping to see something like the DeLorean featured in the Back to the Future movie series, but here’s how it looks like:

It kinda reminds me of a giant mouse. Here’s a snippet of the news:

The two-seater vehicle fits into the light sport aircraft category and has an anticipated price tag of $148,000.

Foldable wings, though, may not make some passengers feel safe in the sky. Dietrich said making sure the wings stay erect while in flight was one of Terrafugia’s biggest engineering challenges.

Well, I can say this type of vehicle would be a God-send to the congested traffic here. But then again… we don’t want to see ERP gantries in the mid-air now, would you? Full news here.

    Sick of obtaining low numbers of useless traffic for your site? Well i wish to tell you about a brand new underground tactic that produces myself $900 daily on 100% AUTOPILOT. I possibly could be here all day and going into detail but why dont you merely check their website out? There is a great video that explains everything. So if your serious about producing hassle-free cash this is the website for you. Auto Traffic Avalanche
