Could flying cars be the answer to avoiding bumper-to-bumper traffic?
Inventors have been trying for decades to create flying cars,though it
seems the idea of self-driving cars may soon be closer to science reality.
You're stuck on the highway bumper-to-bumper traffic a commute that should
have taken a few minutes has now somehow become an hour-long endeavor
and this happens we all have one of two thoughts one monster truck or two wish
I could just fly over this mess great news some of Sciences greatest minds are
saying we already have them we already have flying cars they call helicopters well
that's not quite what we meant Neal but let's find out how the science fiction of
the flying car we all know and love may be closer than you think to a science
reality sci-fi has long imagined that flying cars would zip around unencumbered
by traffic in star wars Blade Runner and the Fifth Element flying cars just seemed
right while flying cars once seemed inevitable they haven't quite caught on yet
even though inventors have been trying for decades now companies like uber
are developing airborne ride-sharing but the infrastructure and regulations
don't yet exist to support it but maybe flight isn't our only solution to traffic
for you men who are always late to the office we have this built-in Auto but
we're really looking for is found time that's where sci-fi has been way ahead
of us with the self-driving car drive engage may I suggest you put the car in the
Auto cruise mode for safety sake no you may not the self-driving car may soon
be a common reality Google Tesla, Ford uber, and others have been developing
self-driving cars for years cities including Paris and Beijing are testing self-driving
cars on the road and wham-o has released a fleet of truly driverless taxis in
Phoenix Arizona the cars used sensors and complex algorithms to navigate
and to avoid collisions problems have cropped up with some test projects
including crashes a pedestrian death and even violence towards the cars
which could be typical road rage or the quirks of interacting with AI which
sci-fi also predicted so the next time you're feeling that road rage take
a deep breath inhale exhale and know that the flying cars are coming soon
