In case you needed to know whether or not technology is there for flying cars, here you go. In an incredibly horrifying video, the Light sport Ni43RS skyrunner gets absolutely destroyed shortly after takeoff when it collided with a building not that far away. Take a look (via Jalopnik) and continue reading below:
Surprisingly, neither passenger was killed in the incident, but both suffered serious injuries. My question is even if this test went well...what viability does this product have in a consumer's market? You can't really use it anywhere but on flat land, and even then it looks incredibly sketchy! Also, why did absolutely no one react to that crash? No screaming, swearing, rushing to their aid...it's very bizarre.
Side note, what year do you think flying cars become a thing? Do you think they ever will?
