Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news of a recent test of a flying taxi prototype from a company owned by Larry Page. Discuss here if you think flying cars and taxis are still just a dream, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

These were prophesied in my younger days - way back in mid last century...

I recall there being an earlier version of one some time in the latter years of that century; didn't really take off though (couldn't resist the pun...)

They'll really become a pain for others with their noise take off/landing; and also have to compete with assorted other flying nuisances and useful things too - namely drones (legal or otherwise) and air ambulances and traffic and police hecilopters... And who is going to train and "monitor etc." the pilots of these gadgets?

It's bad enuff already with my Lear jet having to share space with other (legal) fixed wing craft and of course pesky drones...

Seriously though, I can see some with loads-a cash going for them; but the average bod isn the street etc. no way

When I was in grade school in the mid 60's, I had to do a report about transportation in the year 2000. I think I based a lot of it on an article from Popular Mechanics. I predicted travel via helicopters would be commonplace. I'm still waiting. Here's some other predictions from old copies of Popular Mechanics:

A strange aside. Your link wouldn't let me through on either Edge or IE because it reckoned I had an advert blocker. They don't but Firefox has one and it let me straight in with the advert blocker still running.
