Every year we get the new version of the same concept. It’s a glimpse into the future that isn’t here yet, and we do seem to be inching ever closer to it becoming reality.
I’m talking about a flying car, and the newest one comes courtesy of the joint effort between two major names: Airbus and Italdesign.
It’s the concept called the Pop.Up, and there’s the slick video showing just how the craft is envisioned to operate.
Basically, there’s the skateboard-style lower attachment for traveling along the ground, above this is a detachable pod with four rotors attached. Power comes from batteries and electric motors.
The future megacites where the masses are envisaged to live is where the vehicle will roam, and it’ll be hailed much like an Uber or Lyft is today.
You call for one via the app on your Black Mirror-approved device and the car is automatically sent to your location.
Because of the design, the Pop.Up can either arrive driving along a road on its four wheels or drop in from the sky using its rotors.
Once you hop in, you will soon be traveling along through traffic or you will be soaring above it, depending on how busy things are and what a computer determines as the best route to your selected destination.
