  • For all those wondering about piloting, the Japanese vehicle is mostly autonomous - from the Japanese Times: "The initial model will fly basically on auto pilot, but it’s not 100 percent autonomous because a pilot would need to manoeuvre it in case of an emergency, for example." Forgot to mention that.

    • The Korean guy that made something like (he is on SEworld seworld.info/will/bpvM0Ku9nK17unU/video ) that already flys way faster and higher and he is 1 dude. He has videos flying around a lake etc. What have the Japanese people been doing for 6 years with all those employees One guy should have hired the Korean guy and skipped the 6 years of development.

    • Unfortunately, electric passenger vehicles will never gain momentum using the current methods. Batteries are far to heavy to transport people or cargo at the speed or distance required by industry today. Battery research is not even close to a breakthrough of necessary significance. Even if batteries could be used they are not an energy source the electricity required for such an electric passenger vehicle industry would put tremendous demand on current infrastructure and power plants would burn much more fossil fuel and natural gas resulting in similar CO2 emissions as today. So no environmental benefits. Their is a solution to these problems that would quickly make electric flight the new norm while also solving the "green energy source" issue but strangely industry is not exploring this solution as much as they should. Give this comment a like if you want to know what the solution is.

  • A flying car doesn't have to have wheels. The ability to drive is not what makes it a flying car. The flying car is a car which flies instead of drives. Sure, literally you could put a helicopter system on a car and call it a flying car, but the concept as used in SciFi and popular depictions is a car which flies, but which can be as convenient as a normal car, with the same configuration of space, and which can land where you would normally park, thus it has to be the same size as a regular car - and it should need no special runway. Almost invariably it has been expected to use a mode of powering not invented yet. No matter how many wheels you put on that thing in the video, it is still JUST a helicopter and nothing but a helicopter.

  • I don't think this will ever become commonplace for the average citizen. If your car fails and halts to a stop, the most that can happen is an accident, but as long as your brakes etc. are fine you're usually safe. If anything fails on a flying vehicle it can easily go down. You're working against gravity here. Maintenance is paramount. Not to mention the qualifications to pilot them. I can see taxi companies using it maybe, but not the average person

  • To some who look at the earliest days of powered flight, there was an even earlier proponent of a road-able airplane, and to some think it preceded the Wright brothers. The design of Gustave Whitehead's Number 21 aircraft was wheeled, when the Wrights were using skids and a rail to launch. Whitehead's monoplane design had folding wings and Tail, with a kingpost type wire rigging holding the wing level from above before take off,, and wires going down to hold them level in flight. Two of Whitehead built engines powered the craft, allowing for differential steering along with weight shift. The very simplest electric model aircraft use the differential steering technique today. I am not absolutely convinced of the 1901 flight written up in the local paper, and subsequently reprinted in Scientific American before the Wrights triumph at Kitty Hawk, but there was a lot of claims in the same era that were even less well documented. Though Whitehead was almost as well known an engine builder as Glenn Curtiss was, and a copy of his design has been shown to fly by the Germans from the region where he was born before emigrated to America, U.S. history has not been kind to him or to Californian John Montgomery who built gliders as good as the Wrights did. I credit the Wrights with a better control system in turns, but I think that Whitehead would be in the history books if he had been able to turn as well. Folding wings, four wheels, It was a flying car design from its beginning. Did it fly first, we have no photographic proof, and the Wrights have just the one, plus the Coast Guard observers word. Whitehead had a newspaper editor's word for it, in an age like our own where the more outrageous the claim the more news it sold to the wire services. History is written by the winners and in some cases lawsuits determine who wins in the end.

  • What about the following questions: 1. What about the sound of those things? How loud will they be? Now imagine hundreds of them (thousands?) flying around? Why are there no videos (at least I can not find any) with actual SOUND available? 2. Air Taxis will not bring any benefit to the ground traffic as many suggest: You would need thousands and thousands in the air to decrease ground traffic significantly. Am I missing a point? 3. Many of the suggested air Taxis need some 50-100 m² free space to land. Where do you get this in cities? Where do you get this for hundreds of air taxis? And MOST OF ALL: 4. I doubt that the battery technology available now allows for the specs companies like Lilium are promising. 300 km range at 300 km/h? With something that weighs in at around half a ton? I fail to see a battery solution that would allow this stunt. I have looked around, but I can not find any answers to those critical questions.

  • "Flying cars" won't happen in the sense of personal flying vehicles. The traffic control implications are mind-boggling and there are no "fender benders" in the air. This is the problem with air taxis, too. Uber has *increased* city traffic. Uber air-taxis, if vaguely affordable, would create an air control nightmare for the same reason, I surmise.

  • I am very interested abt battery and wireless charging in the future. I heard abt a pilot project that China is undertaking now where they are developing in where they use wireless charging ports lining strategical location to wireless charge electric cars as they travel along the stretch of street. I don't know it is true. If it uis true den whoever create that technology wld b the pioneer in that technology and way to go. Maybe the car will b charged wireless through a unique account by the power supplier and charge accordingly like our electricity bill monthly. Then we won't have to worry abt pulling up to gas station throughout the journey from lets say San Francisco to LA, becoz our electric car wld be charged wirlessly throughout the stretch that we travel from SF to LA n we don't even hv to worry abt charging our electric car wen we reach LA late at night to look for charging station. Is that the reason also the reason that China has already set a date in the v near future to ban d selling of new gas power cars in China in d v neary future? US shld not let China win this this technology field bcoz it means mega business so if US hasn't start this project, they better do. Can U kindly do a documentarty of this technology?

  • The flying vehicle of the future has not come about just yet, because I have not shown my idea of it. All these flying vehicle are having a hard time achieving success, because they are using old ways of thinking. I can’t wait to start, (in about 8 years from now.) the technology I will be using does already exist, but has not been used in the context in which I will be using this technology. One day, my flying vehicle will be soaring the skies.

Also the fact that we are still using air and not magnets to fly or whatever aliens use....I know we don’t know what those tictacs were but they exist and we have them on film so that kind of flying exists. This still looks so old school....it’s too clunky. It needs to be like a car and this isn’t it. Maybe for someone who already owns helicopters.

Graphene is surely the development I'm waiting for the most for now but seeing flying vehicles and the future of mobility, stays extremely exciting. When you just see what DJI achieved with its drones within the last 5 years, we can be very confident to see amazing evolution in autonomous and very precise human flying solutions in less than a decade.

  • I'm just curious how flying lanes are going to be managed. Will we be able to just cross into whatever territory? Or maybe we'll have built in sensors that warn us when we're close to private property? Because takeoff could be very risky if other flyers get into our fly zone; would there be collisions? I think driverless cars will be a thing well before we decide to hand over a flyer's license to just anyone. Think of the money invested in those cars, and the modified roads for them over the next few decades. Now, where do flying cars fit into this equation?

  • Even IF you can make a viable product, there is the question of what the hell the use case is. You are not going to need one of these going to the grocery store. You will book a flight on a traditional airline for long distance travel. And air taxies are already in place with helicopters. All this will do is either make traditional flight cleaner and cheaper. Personal aircraft won't ever be a thing.

    Ideally JekylIdeally Jekyl5 månader sedan
  • I think piloting/control of these vehicles is the bigger barrier to entry, which you didn't touch on in the video. For widespread adoption, the general public needs to be able to control these safely with little training. For a normal car, it's doable. Most people can understand the physical mechanics of driving a vehicle. When you go airborne and start flying, there are many more variables that need to be considered, such as three dimensional movement and flight physics. A level of complexity is introduced that would make training more expensive and time consuming than the typical person will put up with, and even if you could train everyone to fly, it's still inherently more accident-prone than driving. Add in other people in flying cars that you need to avoid and there is potential for catastrophic collisions. In my opinion, the main reason flying cars haven't been viable yet is because they are simply too dangerous for the general public to use. The reason they are becoming viable now is because of advancing AI technology. If flight control, like driving, can be completely automated, this eliminates the problems of training time, controlling in unexpected weather situations, and awareness of obstacles in flight. Flying cars could use an AI network to communicate with each other and track the location of other vehicles, so you'd never collide with another car. The most effective solution will probably have you simply tell the car where you want to go, and it automatically carries you there without further input.

  • This was supposed to be about 'flying cars' but instead it is about 'electric aircraft'; The question is where these large passenger carrying drones will be allowed to fly & land.. not too many places so it's not much better than cheap small cheap helicopters-which have been around since the 70's. Electric aircraft are like electric cars: they are toys->widespread use is totally unrealistic because instead of having a few fixed locations where a car can drive-in refuel in a few minutes and then allow the next car to drive thru; Instead there has to be a charger on every parking spot.. other wise they are only realistic for people who live in their own house (with garage so you can park and recharge) and it has to be a second car because if heaven forbid that you actually have to use your car all day, driving to and from multiple locations, on a hot day with aircon, the electric car will always leave you FORD(found on road dead) so you always have to have a real car to back-it-up.
