#10 | AeroMobil 3.0 Flying Car

AeroMobil 3.0 Flying Car. Still in development stages, though a regular flight testing program has been in place since October 2014. The AeroMobil 3.0 can transform in seconds from an automobile to an airplane thanks to its incorporation of existing infrastructure for both vehicles. Even better, it uses standard gasoline, drives in traffic the same as any other car, and fits into a standard parking spot. Yeah, probably like the the Toyota Sequoia "fits" in the office garage spot next to your Chevy Aveo, but whatever. Driving an airplane to work and parking it like an asshole would still represent a great technological feat for mankind.

As an airplane, the AeroMobil should be able to take off from and land at any airport worldwide, as well as any grass strip or paved surface a few hundred meters long. Version 3.0's body shell, wings, and wheels are composed of advanced composite material. Inside, drivers/pilots will find avionics equipment, autopilot features, and a parachute deployment system along with, like, a gas pedal and brake.
