I hope it requires owners to have a pilot license. I don't want these things falling out of the sky. Worse yet drunk flying. I worry about the kind of people flying them. Us on the ground beware!!!!!

Is this guy going to design rail cars for SMART? I imagine there are tens of thousands of commuters lining up to buy one of these 250,000.00 toys. Way to go in the struggling economy.

It's an Airplane...It's a Car! Wait, it's BOTH!

Well, since it's going to fly like an airplane, needs an airport to take off and land and does not fold up into a briefcase, this is not the killer app I've been waiting for.

But, I'm sure John Travolta will buy one of the first ones if he ever makes it into production. I've been around afew years, these ideas come and they go..
