Sci-Friday #130 – Our Flying Car is Here!

Fun fact: we’ve been chasing flying cars since 1917. True story. Now, for this Sci-Friday, our flying car is here! The Jetson One  is a commercially available personal electric aerial vehicle that you can own and fly. Watch the video and then let’s discuss:

Look, I get it. It’s not the Flying DeLorean we’ve all been dreaming of since 1989. Nonetheless, the idea of a footprint-free traveling vehicle that could potentially rescue stranded travelers or deliver lifesaving materials is an excellent use of tech and imagination.

According to NewAtlas, Sweden’s Jetson Aero has already sold out the 2022 production run of this cute little single-seat kit build, which is capable of zooming along at 63 mph (102 km/h). Will you put a Jetson One in your garage? When it comes to flying cars, the sky truly is the limit! Now that our flying car is here, let me take a moment to say I hope you enjoy this Sci-Friday. Feel free to dive down the rabbit hole of every other Sci-Friday I’ve published in the past couple years. Have a great weekend!
