Flying Cars! Flying Cars!!!

It's about damn time.  It was a staple of almost any science fiction version of "the future" that we'd all carry small portable communications devices, talk to each other on video phones, and all drive flying cars.

Ten years into the 21st Century, nearly everyone has a cell phone (many of which double as computers, cameras, and more).  Video conferencing has become more and more ubiquitous - from companies using Skype for web conferences to lonely dudes showing their junk on ChatRoulette.  But despite what we've learned from Blade Runner, Back to the Future, and The Jetsons, we still don't have flying cars.  Where the hell is my flying car?

Oh... here it is!

Say hello to the Terrafugia Transition, which just got a special weight exemption by the FAA and will now be going into production for the public.  Of course the thing will cost about $200,000 so I can only afford one if I sell my house and live out of my new Flying Car.  But it would totally be worth it because I would have a FLYING F$%*ING CAR!

Now all I need is the options package that includes a Flux Capacitor.  And a copy of Gray's Sports Almanac.
