The Flying Car and other soon to be stuff.
I really want the flying car...but alas, Even when it does come out. I know that no one whom is not a social elite will never be able to drive one for at least the next 6 thousand years or so. Even IF its self driving. Below I have the quote I made in that link I will provide.

What is it that you guys are waiting for the most? Do you believe you will be able to enjoy any of the promised things that are coming for the future? For me there is three things I am really waiting for.

1. Human consciousness transplants - Transfer your complete self to a computer
2. Stem Cells take a heavy notice in the medical and dental field - Basically, I want to regrow my rotting teeth. I want new ones lol.
3. To be able to own or operate a Quantum Computer.

Quote:I would have a crazy German scientist cut off my foot and then him and his buddies can have their way with me.....all just so I could get my hands on the flying car!

In reality! Lets say this was the year 2050. The flying car is available for public use.

Lets take a look at OTHER flying vehicles.

1. Plane - Can cost a minimal of $15,000. This is if you buy the cheapest and most unsafe airplane and it has got to be used and have wear on it.

2. Blimp - Around 2 million dollars for a blimp....yeah. Something that has been around for over a HUNDRED YEARS....costs 2 MILLION Dollars.

3. A Balloon - Around 20,000 for the cheapest

4. A glider costs as much as 2800-5500 depending on if you want to live or have a partner or not.

5. A Helicopter which this vehicle is partly is costs 30,000-60,000 $$$

7. A Brand New High end electrical car costs 70,000 MINIMAL regardless of its maker.

8. A New Technological world defining car costs about the same.

9. A Jet costs around 3 million for a small jet.

10. Self Driving cars will cost somewhere around 25k.

OK! So lets do some math here!

1. Its a Helicopter
2. Its a jet.
3. Its self Driving
4. Its the peak of new tech
5. It combines all of these so we have to factor at least a jump by 1/2 of the total price so far for complexity alone
6. Public demand
7. Safty issues with keeping them out of the hands of retards, terrorists and criminals
8. about 50 years of billions of dollars going into making the regulations and safety backups for them.
9. ITS NEW
10. The god like demand for them.


Ok so we take 3 million and add that with the rest and then factor in the X cost which will be the Mark up for lining the rich tyrants pockets with as well as paying off the plethora of companies whos parts go into making them.

I estimate that the flying car will cost somewhere between 80-150 Million dollars per car. There will be 10 sold at the most. No human on earth will ever see one in action unless one rich guy wants to make an event out of it and show off how rich he is and factoring in the fact that we do not all fly in planes.....even HUNDREDS of years after they were invented. It should be somewhere around the year 8790 until we the "people" have the flying car.

life like human androids? I do not see a problem with wanting one of those.

It might be possible we could see them. We never know how fast robotics might advanced so lets keep our fingers crossed.

Oh, c'mon. You know it would work out well in Massachusetts. Yes

yes it has. The difference is that we actually have flying cars or at least the prototypes of them.

Plus, computers did not exist in the same way back then then they do now. So all of the flying aspect is taken out since the car drives itself while in flight.
