would you want one of these? I have to admit this looks pretty cool.


Born too late for the Wright Brothers' first plane? Missed out on Henry Ford's Model T? You can still have a piece of transportation history: the prototype for an unprecedented mode of transportation that melds sci-fi and state-of-the-art technology.

• The M400 Skycar is the world's first personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, designed to elevate individual drivers above the headaches of commuting and the dangers of highway travel.
• In development since the 1960s, the Skycar has completed successful hovering flights, and its first manned, un-tethered flight is planned for Fall 2005.
• Developed by Moller International, the three-wheeled, folding-wing craft is designed to be as safe, affordable, and easy to use as an automobile.
• Travels at 350+ miles per hour and achieves an environmentally friendly 21 miles per gallon on alcohol, a cleaner fuel than gasoline.
• Because most auto emissions occur at idle or low speeds, the M400 will produced less pollution by burning fuel more completely.
• A limited number of M400s is expected to be available within the next three years, but you can purchase the actual prototype for yourself or your favorite commuter now.
• For more information and to order, please call 1.877.9NM.GIFT.
• Delivery not included.*

3.5 mill is alot of chatered flights. I dunno, seems cheesy. From the stuff Moller has made in the past, i dunno.

Money was no object? Maybe.

I think i'd do something more tangible with my money. Like eat a panda or have ferocious animals fight themselves in a ring.

You know, the obvious stuff. :D

It'd be more than charter flights. You can land this thing in your driveway so it could be your everyday drive to work. I only drive 7 miles each way but wow, what great 7 miles.

Of course if I could afford 3.5 mil for a toy I probably wouldn't be going to work.

I'd be so down with that. I hate traffic so much...I hate that it takes me an hour to travel 37.5 kms each way to school and back, whereas w/o traffic it takes me less than 40 minutes. Everyday, I think to myself "if only I could be flying."

And now I can! HALLELUJAH!
