    Welcome To The Future: I'll be your guide.

    Originally from: http://www.moller.com/skycar/

    Moller International has developed the first and only feasible, personally affordable, personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicle the world has ever seen.

    http://www.moller.com/skycar/m400/m400-flag.jpg'>

    You've always known it was just a matter of time before the world demanded some kind of flying machine which would replace the automobile. Of course, this machine would have to be capable of VTOL, be easy to maintain, cost effective and reliable. Well, we at Moller International believe we have come up with the solution. That solution is the volantor named M400 Skycar.

    Let's compare the M400 Skycar with what's available now, the automobile. Take the most technologically advanced automobile, the Ferrari, Porsche, Maserati, Lamborgini, or the more affordable Acura, Accord, or the like. It seems like all of the manufacturers of these cars are touting the new and greatly improved "aerodynamics" of their cars. Those in the aerospace industry have been dealing with aerodynamics from the start. In the auto industry they boast of aerodynamics, performance tuned wide track suspensions, electronic ignition and fuel injection systems, computer controllers, and the list goes on. What good does all this "advanced engineering" do for you when the speed limit is around 60 MPH and you are stuck on crowded freeways anyway?

    Can any automobile give you this scenario? From your garage to your destination, the M400 Skycar can cruise comfortably at 350+ MPH and achieve up to 28 miles per gallon. No traffic, no red lights, no speeding tickets. Just quiet direct transportation from point A to point B in a fraction of the time. Three dimensional mobility in place of two dimensional immobility.

    No matter how you look at it the automobile is only an interim step on our evolutionary path to independence from gravity. That's all it will ever be.

    Moller International's M400 Skycar volantor is the next step.

    ...something tells me you might not need a few million for a feasible personally affordable air car.

    The first time I ever used my time-traveling belt I went to the year 2044 and this dude appeared out of nowhere. “Hello, I am Mr. Crafty,” he said, “I will be your guide. Do you have any questions about the belt?”
