Flying cars come to the Rose Parade at last
American Honda has a new float at the Rose Parade titled "Passport to the Future." It is a combination of a flying car and a transformer. It starts as a full sized pick up truck, then transforms into a rocket car. This is what happens when we don't tighten emissions standards.
I do wonder two things about this. First, is this the future for Honda? Flying cars is a really cool thing to aspire to, and there is a market for personal transportation between 100-500 miles, or about the ideal range of a flying car. Of course, this does not account for the energy or environmental issues, only mobility.
Second, won't the flames shooting out the back set the roses on fire?
