The Volkswagen Hover Car is not on sale yet, but its based on very real science and a fully scalable conceptual infrastructure. The design is based on “The People’s Car Project” in China, which is a open sourced initiative that asks consumers to help design the car of the future. The Hover Car utilizes electromagnetic levitation to float along a grid above the regular road. The car would be designed to move, backward and forward, and side to side and perhaps even, spin. The zero emission vehicle would be the ultimate, in green technology. Volkswagen, even released a short video to demonstrate the concept of the vehicle.
Ofcourse, the Hover Car is just an idea but the concrete science behind the concept brings the notion of flying cars, within feasible reach for consumers.
