    When Sergio said when he was Baldo’s age and thought there’d be flying cars, does he mean he used to watch “Back to the Future, Part II” or (to go back further) “The Jetsons”?

    I will wait for an amphibious flying car. car, plane and boat in one.

    Baldo, you can’t blame an entire generation for that lack – just its inventors and scientists, and maybe the business community that didn’t feel like backing the research.

    They’ve been predicting flying cars since the turn of the last century.

    True.
    There actually have been flying cars invented — many decades ago. They just were never practical or safe enough to go “mainstream.”

    My reservation about personal flying cars/backpacks is traffic control. Check major freeway (a one word oxymoron) congestion and multiply that by the average number of occupants. Scary thought, even without the drunks. Still, it’s a neat thought.

    even a lot of the cutting edge tech from popular science never makes it into the mainstream.

    We have had flying cars since 1947, it has been the FAA which demanded anyone using such to have pilot’s license. So blame not technology but bureaucracy.

    If you had a wreck in a flying car you would crash into the ground. They would be much more dangerous than the cars we have now.

    Well lets see back in the late 40’s just after WW II there was
    the AEROcar which was a car/plane. There was also one
    that was a combo Boat/car/plane. I remember seeing it
    in the MovieTone News reels just before the movies started.
    Our cars also got better millage then than what they do now.
    My 60 Corviar got between 25 – 30 miles per gallon even
    with A/C in it. I saw one yesterday that looked like the
    Dick Track Wrist radio/phone. Now if they could just
    get Washington DC to pull their heads out life would be
    better.

    Corvairs were a nice car. I owned three. No turbos but they all ran quickly and handled well with good mpg.

    And buildings, schools, etc. if there are thousands of cars flying overhead every day.

    If it had to come down to choosing between “better ways to hear our own voices” and flying cars, I would pick the latter. No contest.
