We have all imagined a flying car that can transport us without having to deal with the boring traffic. Apparently, Japan is already working on it and is very close to making it happen.
A group of ambitious technology geniuses in japan are working for a big launch for the first flying car in the world, the SkyDrive, by the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
"SkyDrive is our first flying concept designed solely to (transport the person who will) light the Olympic flame," Ryutaro Mori, Cartivator's business Director.
the SkyDrive has three wheels, four rotors and uses drone technology and it would fly at an altitude of 33 feet (10 meters), reach top airborne speeds of 62 miles (100 kilometers) per hour, and zoom along at 93 miles (150 kilometers) per hour on land.
Today, the project has 30 volunteers from backgrounds as diverse as the automobile, aviation and IT industries. They plan to have a remote-piloted prototype running by summer 2018.
"Our goal won't be realized unless there are many public supporters who strongly wish our presence at the Olympics."
