There’s no such thing of supercar!

Terrafugia, a company in Massachusetts, has demonstrated what, for all intents and purposes, could be the first viable flying car on March 5th.  The first “flight” covered 3,000 feet in about 37 seconds, with several subsequent and longer duration flights.  This version is clearly aimed at the amateur pilots (who apparently are really richs as the sticker price is close to $200,000).  First shipments are planned for 2011.

Note: The title of this article comes from a Washington, D. C. local advertisement for the Metro system.  The closing phrase, spoken by a small boy around 6 or 7 years old, was the exact words of the title of this article.  It continues to be an inside joke among several Gormogons.  Luckily, through the amazing power of the internet, I was able to find it.  Link is here.  It’s in RealPlayer format.  Please to be noting as you watch it, the lack of traffic where the metrobus drives vs. the traffic “dad’s car” gets into.  Wow…I wish those roads existed.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
