It's one of science fiction's greatest unfulfilled promises, right up there with teleportation and time travel.

And, no, Terrafugia hasn't built us a Tardis or promised to beam us up. But they say they're closer than ever to giving us a flying car.

This week, the Woburn, Massachussetts-based aerospace company announced it has begun feasibility studies on a car capable of vertical takeoffs and landings. The TF-X would be a four-seat, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, according to the company.

Meh Moller has beeing doing the same for a long time.

the thing isn't the flying car itself, it's that before they can be a reality they also need to sort out the issue with auto pilots and flying lanes and traffic control and all that.
