    Until I walk into a car dealership showroom and see one with a price sticker in the window, it`s all just piss and wind.

    I don`t think it would be a good idea to invent flying cars. There would be too many vehicle-building collisions

    I still fail to see the benefits of a hovercar. Very expensive to make and buy, probably uses a tonne of fuel, slow, dangerous and it has a wire attached to it! I mean What`s wrong with the good ol` wheel!?

    All that said though, still cool as hell. I`d love to have a go in it.

    "What`s wrong with the good ol` wheel!?"

    Limited to roads, bridge`s, tunnels, traffic jams and fairly flat terrains!

    Back to the future lied to us!

    Personally, I don`t think there`s any kind of hovercraft I`d be embarrassed to be in!

    And @ lukas1051:
    Did you even watch and listen to what they said in the video? =P

    I don`t think hover cars are the next big thing in vehicles. Too many accidents... Imagine all of the accidents that happen every day in cars, except now, they are all crashing into the ground and buildings and people from who knows how high up in the air.


    Never going to happen. :/

    I`d imagine they`d break the same way helicopters do... by tilting and using rudders and stuff.. i dunno.. but however helicopters do it, that`s how.

    if that cardbox prototype flew then something a million times heavier must be able to fly too if it looks like the prototype, Israeli logic is flawless

    "if that cardbox prototype flew then something a million times heavier must be able to fly too if it looks like the prototype, Israeli logic is flawless"

    If its a scale model then they`ll obviously not be using the same engines to fly it now will they...

    Seriously, this is over 2 years old. How can we be sure this is still in development?

    The mule, is a ground unmanned vehicle used by our Army special division. Our military is producing key weapons in Army Ground operations/naval strategic combat/ Airforce unmanned planes/ and last but not least, the First military installation, probably air force as well. or space force?
