QuotTransitionquot-The Flying Car

5 years ago

We have all seen them in the movies about the future, the flying cars with strange looking designs. I always thought that even though that it might happen one day, I have always thought it would be in years to come but there are already some advancement in that area.
This is the one of the first transformer flying cars called Transition, probably because it transitions from a regular car to a plane, and its made by Terrafugia. They have been working on it for some time now and only now they will be able to present it officially in NYC next month.
The car has foldable wings to become smaller and fit into your driveway or garage easily. The plane goes from car mode to plane mode easily by opening the wings and gain enough speed.
Since its more of a test/concept technology, the design is not the best and not as cool as we used to see them in movies and I guess they could have done a better job with that to be honest and just by changing something like the lights style it could make a difference and probably wouldnt change the aerodynamics of the car-plane.

The price for each Transition plane-car is 275.000$. I didnt even expect them to sell this and it would probably be difficult to get one and use them to fly, but its cool to see that they actually plane on sale it. Still, for that money I would get a super-car and even save some money even.
