We know we've been lax on the flying car stuff lately, and for that we have nobody to blame but ourselves. We could try casting aspersions upon anti-flying-car forces such as Denton, oil prices, or the atrocious Euro/Dollar exhange rate, but the fact is, that although the news isn't coming fast and furious, we haven't been as adept as we once were in chasing it. Shame on us. Here's something to tide you over, dear readers, until that next great leap forward in airborne automotive technology takes place. After all, when all else fails, check Howstuffworks, right?
