When I was a kid they said that we'd have flying cars, like the Jetsons.
I haven't seen any flying cars yet...
I think that it would be neat if they could make it a viable technology that would interact with the normal traffic on the roads today.
Think about it... You could send it out to pick up the kids from school, pick up a pizza, take your "needy" friends to the airport, give YOU a ride home after having a bit too much to drink, the list is endless.
I wonder though, which of the automakers will have the balls to release the first, truly, autonomous car?
As a pilot, the LAST thing I want to see is flying cars. The average moron is already deadly enough without adding altitude to the mix.
