mongbiohazard: Holocaust Agnostic: All those people you share the roads with. You want them flinging several thousand pounds of steel around in 3 dimensions instead?


I don't want them driving on the roads either, but we've got that now. We need autonomous cars absolutely as soon as possible. Once we get that, then yes, I'd like to have autonomous cars that fly as well.

Self-driving cars will save many, many lives. How nice will it be to get as drunk as you want, then climb in your car and tell it to take you home? Once we get to that point adding the extra dimension is just fine with me.


Vehicles where you just sit back and enjoy the ride?  That's crazy talk, future boy.

Seriously. Fully autonomous cars seems like a much more reasonable first step. Once we have the automated systems 100% effective, then flying cars might be a possibility, but not with the average driver in control.

Come on guys, can't we at least enjoy the thread until QA gets here, instead of basically doing what he does and just shiatting in it without contributing anything??
