    C'mon, no one uses directional signals anymore. They are too busy doing important things like texting on thier cell phones.

    I've been watching this one. It's a bit better looking than the Terrafugia, although about as awkward looking in flight.

    Haven't seen a flying car yet that meets my expectations that were burned into my mind as a youth. Those were optimistic times where anything was possible...
