An Innovation Still Being Realized
According to Harriet Tubman "Every great dream begins with a dreamer". We are still trying to accomplish this idea and still waiting on this to happen fast flying car:
Technologist William Halal revealed an innovation idea normal time period for a prediction is 10 to 15 years to be realized from Technology’s Promise. Coming from an expert would you believe in the next twenty years we would all be flying around that depends on some economic implications this prediction for the future maybe possible.
FUTURIST: In terms of selling flying cars, I guess the thing I'm trying to get a handle on, why is it so very, very hard?
Moller: I could spend a few years on that one. There are three components that make or break this technology: engines, electronics, and materials. For the engine, the most critical element is power. Once you reduce the diameter of the propulsion system, you go from a helicopter, to a fan system, you're moving less air. The problem is, the less air you move, the more power it takes to generate a certain kind of thrust. We've spent about $35 million over a period of 40 years developing the power plant for this project.
