Roads? Where we’re going, we won’t need roads

If you’ve ever seen Back To Future (and which weirdo hasn’t) then you’ll know we’re only five and a half years away from the date November 21st – the date Marty and Doc Brown travel through time to. Since the release of the movie 20 years ago the idea of the hover-board has proved to be nothing but a pipe dream but the idea of a flying car looks like it could be a reality after the US army announced they are set to develop the futuristic mobiles.

According to reports, Barack Obama’s government have pledged $54 million to manufacture a four seater car that can travel 250 miles on a single tank of fuel on the ground or in the air. Cool! The concept vehicle will primarily be used in warfare but the idea of it being available for regular consumers soon after has also been raised.

OneIndia quotes a designer as saying: ‘We’re not very far down the road. That gives you an idea about the glide path for this program’. Let's hope this isn't a belated April Fools joke.
