Retro Tech: Flying Cars

No matter what year, the idea of flying vehicles helps cement our sense of when the future begins. I’m taking a look at everything flying - from cars to skateboards - and seeing where the tech currently stands. I also look at some classic old toys with comedian Michael Ian Black.

  • Flying cars are the easiest thing to make in principle utilizing simple magnetism with two magnetic fields in a certain configuration I call a magneto-dielectric repulsine drive. I will not go into the engineering details but will say this technology is so pathetically easy, and it's not a shame that it hasn't been invented, because it has, but that no one else has come up with it since then.

  • Well I want to fly and I have faith we will soon overcome the problems standing in the way. I have seen several models that expect to actually go into production this year. I think the biggest issue is there are some who remain stuck on the 'fly" part of the equation, that is they want what is essentially a plane with some limited ability to drive versus a car that also fly's. I want the Bladerunner experience or even 6th Element version and I bet most other folks do as well.

  • It seems like Star Wars had the best idea (though bordering on impossible)--that being anti-gravity units, like what "made" Cloud City float in the upper atmosphere of Bespin.

  • At the end you said that we want to be able to fly like a bird, but you didn't mention fpv drones. It's the closest thing we have to felling like we are really flying.

  • It's hard to replace transport as efficient as a bicycle. EV's are sort of a compromise between capitalism and environmentalism but solar powered cars would've been better.

  • @13:47 Imagine an angry Karen coming at you like this, because you felt a disturbance in the force, and when she's finally arrived, she demands for you to get down to her level because she doesn't want to stand up to properly discuss the meaningless reason, she's angry about 😑

  • Flying cars are not efficient and dangerous. There is plane and there is cars. They have different purpose. Hybrid between them is very unlikely. I think there won't be one in the near future. Whats wrong with cars are there is a friction between touched areas which are wheels and roads. This make cars less efficient and less stable. The solution to this is hovering. So, whats more likely in near future is hovering cars.

  • The only way we will ever see these vehicles is first, someone is going to have to figure out what the polarity of the earth is in order to developed a way to create lift. For instance, like poles on a magnet repel. Based on that it would be just a matter of controlling the up and down movement as well as direction.

  • a safe solution for the hover board is when flying get a parachute simple this idea came to me from 9/11 attacks if those folks trapped in the uppers floors if only they had a simple thing like a parachute RIP so fore me whenever im in NY i have a parachute i even wear with a backup too everywhere im not kidding!!i especially in Manhattan you never know when these cowards will come back again no guarantee 9/11 attacks was planned 20 years before then waiting patiently for the right moment to attack
