Retro Tech: Flying Cars
No matter what year, the idea of flying vehicles helps cement our sense of when the future begins. I’m taking a look at everything flying - from cars to skateboards - and seeing where the tech currently stands. I also look at some classic old toys with comedian Michael Ian Black.

    instant thumbs down for making the older generation look like they are stupid , my 60 year old grandmother taught her self how to build her own reballing machine and then she took out both the cpu and gpu and upgraded them . they would work properly so she unlocked the bios and changed some things v. got a couple of extra parts and 3 weeks later my laptop is now running a upgraded cpu and gpu . love you gran and thanks

    I guess flying cars are still not mainstream because the bigger necessity of the present is to shift from fossil fuel and CO2 emissions rather than decongest traffic by taking to the air. Once we solve this problem in the next 30 years, maybe flying cars would be the new normal.

  • dmulvey2

    Imagine the job of an air traffic controller. Consider how normal it is to see a car accident now translate that to several thousand pounds regularly plummeting from the sky in urban areas. These are the reasons there will never be flying cars even if everything else became practical.

    I think that to create flying cars and skateboards you need a new technology that we still do not know, such as anti-gravity materials. As for propulsion, gas or fuel take up a lot of space and are expensive. NASA will surely discover these technologies one day and apply them to everyday life like many other inventions.

  • 2011Kestrel

    Take a good look at everyone driving, or failing to do so. Now put them hundreds, maybe thousands of feet in the air. These things would have to be 100% automated, and even then the chance of catastrophic failure, the horrible inefficiency, the probable threat to wildlife (I’ve hit birds with my ground-loving truck), would make flying cars such a bad thing. While I’m all for flying emergency response vehicles, I NEVER want to see flying cars.

    That hoverboard drone at the end was pretty fun looking! I was a little disappointed that the Mollar M400 Skycar wasn't in this episode. They were pretty close for a while but seemed that insurance and regulatory concerns were an issue. Or at least I think that's what the company was saying anyway.

    Interesting, but this episode should have been labeled "Retro Tech: hover boards". There was no coverage of the companies that are poised to bring drone-like flying cars to market, what that experience will be like, is it a trend that will continue to evolve, and in what ways.

    OMG, can we do away with propellers? I mean the whole point of a flying car is one without wings or propellers. Like the stuff we see in Star Trek or Back to the Future. I really believe that electrostatic levitation and propulsion will be the kind of levitation we're all looking for. Instead of building propeller lifting vehicles, focus all efforts on making a superconductor higher than room temperature and a better battery or energy device, like Mr. Fusion. The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) will, if things go according to plan, move one step closer to becoming the world’s first functioning nuclear fusion reactor this summer when scientists conduct its inaugural test runs. Then when the technology is better understood, we'll have smaller ones that can run our flying cars. Superconductors, fusion, force Fields, gravity generators, and energy weapons. Then we can start mining asteroids and colonizing planets. All's we'll have to worry about is drunk drivers and terrorists unless flying is automated. I believe all driving and flying needs to be automated to prevent accidents. Drunks, terrorists, old people, distracted driving, and falling asleep at the wheel could all be avoided with automated driving.

    Marques i am avid subscriber to your channel you are brilliant.. from one broda to another, 1.why dont we have flying cars and all other technology that we were promised.. its a simple answer, That technology was already made and the people who made it look like you.. Know is a racial issue yes, is it an economics issue yes, is it an issue where people will get to see what is really going on over and under their noses yes.. 2.Its all of the above its not a conspiracy theory its not even my opinion its a fact.. The pyramids in Giza and other pyramids built through out the world have that the quote unquote genius of MIT and other institution have they explained it NO. 3.If you want flying cars you have to work with nature, and the earth magnetic grids... But Marques, and their is always a butt, that will mean that we have free flowing energy coming from the earth.. 4.Marques you and everyone else has energy emitting from that why body language can be interpreted without someone asking you what is wrong.. 5. Its all about energy and who controls it its simple as that.. simplicity is the key of everliving.. 6. You Marques Brownlee are the technology... and yes I went their aren't you looking for the future...

    This could have been way more comprehensive. It was really great but I've seen a bunch of little personal flying drone things that you can sit inside of and they didn't bring that up at all. That's way closer to a flying car than the very last thing which I think was called a hoverboard. That was basically just a drone that you stand on but it's a far cry from a flying car. I've seen a bunch of those flying cars at like CES and if it wasn't for the safety concerns I think we would all have them and even may have them soon.
