Still Waiting for Flying Cars

auto transportingWhen my parents were growing up, everyone was so excited to enter the new millennium. The future meant flying cars and robots who took care of all the cooking and cleaning. Yes, it was the good life of The Jetsons. The year 2000 came and went and we’re still nowhere near our expectations. However, we might be finally taking a step into the ultra-futuristic direction. The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is developing a $65 million project to create a flying car. Of course it will be for military purposes only and not nearly as cool as you would think.

The vehicle, known as the Transformer or TX, would function like a Humvee on the road, but have the mobility of a helicopter in the air. The car won’t be simply “flying around.” Instead, it will be used to send supplies, provide medical evacuation, avoid explosives, and to send in Special Forces. The flying vehicle will take years to conceptualize and build, but could be ready as early as 2015.

The future is here…sort of. Until then, we’ll have to settle for driving our normal cars and using car transport services to go even farther. At least I can rely on ABC Auto Transport for all my auto transporting needs.
