According to the Associated Press, Japan’s SkyDrive has taken the lead in testing its own products among many “flying car” projects around the world.
IT Home learned that this product looks like a motorcycle with a propeller. During the test, the product rose a few feet (1-2 meters) from the ground and hovered for four minutes. According to Fukuzawa Tomohiro, head of SkyDrive, he hopes that “flying cars” can become a reality by 2023, but he also admits that ensuring flight safety is of paramount importance.
Fukuze said that so far this machine can only fly for five to ten minutes, but if it can finally reach thirty minutes, it will have greater export potential, including exports to China and other places.
But for this flying car, its battery size, air traffic control and other infrastructure issues are one of the many potential challenges to commercializing it.
The SkyDrive project has been started in 2012 as a volunteer project called Cartivator. The project has received funding from top Japanese companies, including Toyota, Panasonic, and Bandai.
