Flying Cars? Streetable Aircraft? What Do You Mean They Won't Work?

Whatever m you call them, our nerdy, tech-obsessed sibling Gizmodo knows an expert that says you won't be getting a hover conversion on your El Camino any time in the near future, much less by 2015. There are a few very real problems, one of which is that airplanes make for crappy cars and cars make for crappy planes. And then you have to deal with the complexity of flying. Do you really think all of the idiots on the road can deal with stall speeds and crosswinds? So for now, the flying car is a pipe dream and we're still stuck following Casey Kasem's advice to keep our feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
