Flying High at the 2020 Olympics

With the 2016 Olympics underway, most of us had thought that by now there would be self-tying shoes, flying cars, and hover-boards. Well by the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, that might be possible. Japanese engineers say that their flying cars will be in the air by the 2020 Olympics. A team of Japanese engineers are working to develop the first flying car with the goal of launching it for the Tokyo Olympics. This vehicle, called Skydrive, has three wheels and is equipped with a motor and four rotors. The reason behind this futuristic means of transportation is to provide a new way of transport to avoid the destruction of the Japan’s earthquakes. So far the prototype measures a fifth of the final size and was recently tested hovering almost 10 feet off the ground. The new vehicles of the future could be around before we know it.
