It’s A Bird It’s A Plane… No it’s a Flying Car!

In this article I read that the Defense Advanced Research Department Agency, DARPA, is working on building the first ever flying car, called the Transformer TX.  The Transformer TX would be designed to carry four troops with full gear, and have a range of 250 miles on a single tank of fuel. It is being designed with combat in hostile terrains in mind,  especially places where roadside mines have become a real threat.  What I also found interesting is that DARPA develops basically anything that is from a sci-fi movie, such as laser guns and artificial intelligence for example.  All in all i found this article very interesting because I never knew that a thing called DARPA even existed, and I was always curious whether a flying car was ever going to be created.  However I do not think its a good idea for a flying car to be able to be used by consumers.  That’s an accident waiting to happen.
