Re: Flying Car - Tarn-D Drive System



The  problems I see that need to be overcome are:
Boundaries - If one has a vehicle which is no bigger than the average
motorcar that could travel at any speed the whole existence of national
boundaries just could not exist. One could live in London, travel 40 minutes
to the office in Rome and drop by Cairo for some figs on the way home.
Existing Industry - No more roads to build or maintain. All that cash
invested in the manufacture of cars, boats, trains, planes. How will
industry react?
Military - Again akin to boundaries, but a small group of bandits from say
Nigeria landing without notice in the middle of the queens summer garden
party.
Limitless speed - Some fool would push to hard and end up crashing into a
populated area at high speed like a meteorite killing hundreds.
Possible benefits:
Cheap transport costs - Food from the west going to Africa.
Disabled peoples transport. Go anywhere.
Holidays in space/on the moon in just a few years from now.

As you can see? when it comes it will be rather big.

Any ideas as to how to keep control?
