Flying Cars: The Dream Lives On

Here's a BusinessWeek article about the living dream of flying cars. In the public mind since the 1960's, this is a dream that just won't die. As the article concludes "Sure, the flying car is a long way off. But chances are, cars will eventually fly. Pigs won't."

I'd say the flying car is a sure bet. Although I won't dare to give a date, I'm confident that it will happen shortly after pilots are removed from the cockpits of commercial aircraft and that will happen within twenty years; maybe even in as little as ten.

The mechanics of aircraft are well understood, the hard part is training the average person to fly one safely. Thus, AI is the key to the flying car and it's "coming soon."
