Moller International has developed the first and only feasible, personally affordable, personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicle the world has ever seen.

You've always known it was just a matter of time before the world demanded some kind of flying machine which would replace the automobile. Of course, this machine would have to be capable of VTOL, be easy to maintain, cost effective and reliable. Well, we at Moller International believe we have come up with the solution. That solution is the volantor named M400 Skycar.

I'm thinking that the driver's test needs to be harder... I know people who barely seem to have control of a vehicle that just goes left, right, front, and back... Up and down aren't going to help these people...

If even a fraction of the population gets flying cars, how will we control airspace? Certain zones like airports out of zones for flying cars and they have to fly at specific heights. Just imagine a mechanical failure in a flying car, we're talking death almost everytime.
Not to mention the training that would be required for each citizen. And they'd have to be tested I hope quite frequently.
It's a good idea, but we won't become the Jetsons in my lifetime.

I saw that thing on "The Science of Star Wars"

Very awesome in theory... but in practice?

Yep. I think the solotrek XVF (http://www.solotrek.com/) will be a bit more affordable.
