A flying car...what soon?...Really?!
I discovered this story on current.com about an invention of a possible flying car by 2015. Being astounded i read more and it stated...
"by 2015 U.S. soldiers will be able to ride into battle aboard a four-person flying car that can cruise in the air like an airplane, drive on the ground like an SUV, rove 250 miles on one tank of fuel and not require a runway to get airborne."
U.S soldiers? Wait why do they need flying cars? We want them dammit! Ah wait...
"The Transformer will give troops the ability to avoid traditional and unconventional threats such as ambushes and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and road obstructions. DARPA envisions a variety of use-case scenarios for the TX, including strike and raid, interdiction, intervention, insurgency/counterinsurgency, reconnaissance, medical evacuation and logistics supply."
Oh okay fair enough...so you has ask how much the Yank government are chipping into this? "$54 million"
Okay 54mill for a flying car like on the jetsons with a cheeky bit of extra gadgets to be helpful in fighting/killing. That's what we all need...more technology for military use, sorry but why cant they use all of that $54million for the good of their nation and the world and try and invent multiple flying cars for our use? You know for the general public? instead of splungering it on bloody military use once again. This is just a great example of how bad things are nowadays, making such unwise decisions. Better yet put that money into the worlds disastrous poverty and get rid of the whole disaster, feed them, clothe them and get poverty stricken countries such as Africa right on their feet and then have time to invest in a flying car once all of the nations are in hand and hand together and everything is wicked. Just do not know why people in government are ignoring poverty and investing right away in things such as a...flying car.
Welcome to the new decade folks!
