Sci Fi Friday: Closer to the Jetson Life - Flying Cars!

At last, one of the great inventions from creative science fiction minds is getting ever closer to reality. Who doesn't want a flying car?

Terrafugia announced the TF-X, a flying car that would not need a runway and can fit in a standard-sized garage. Oh, and it's a hybrid. What's not to love?

I remember reading about flying cars in Weekly Reader back in elementary school. They "promised" us flying cars by the year 2000!

I'm still waiting.

This is one of those inventions that could be a true life changer for a lot of people. Say goodbye to two hour commutes. Business trips would become a breeze.

But my guess is that even if this type of machine hits the market, the price will be out of budget for even most upper middle class folks.

A girl can dream...

What about you? Do you long for a flying car? Or is there some other science fiction invention that you're hoping will become a science reality?
