Looks cool. I'd get one if I was a bachelor. Being married with kids means you don't get to do as many dangerous activities as before.

Weird-looking cars are a dime a dozen. Far less common are weird-looking cars that can also fly AND have approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. Indeed, as far as we know, there's only one of those babies: The Terrafugia Transition. The private aircraft/funky-looking car has been in the news before.But the recent announcement that it's going into production sparked mega-searches on the Web. Almost immediately, online lookups for "terrafugia transition" and "terrafugia transition pictures" both, well, took off. Read more... we're getting closer to the jetson's car.

I'm not sure that they should be available to all drivers though, we would have Star Wars in the sky above our heads.

ah yes, i remember hearing about this on a tv programme. i would have given it another 10 years before putting it into production because other technology still needs to be developed to make it safer and easier to fly.
