Terrafugia's moved up the work on this George Jetson play-toy. Although it may look like it's totally coming straight from a Spacely Sprockets airstrip, it's not. This MIT-designed flying car is called the Transition, and they're gonna try building a prototype in the next two years for a mere $150,000 a unit. Also, it's meant to undergo a metamorphosis on the runway, with the tail folding down, the wings flattening and — excuse me — we've been told the Transition's not a "flying car" but rather a "driving jet." Our mistake. Well, since they don't want to call it a car then I guess we won't cover it. Fuck 'em — we didn't like it anyway.
