The Future of Cars
This will inevitably lead on to second generation voice recognition, which will allow cars to be driven on motorways without assistance.
Unfortunately, as local councils cannot even deal with pot-holes, it is likely that money will always be the stumbling block for vehicle development, which will race way ahead of what we will actually see driving on our streets.
All of this builds up to the thorny issue of Flying Cars. And again, the issue is cost. Several Flying Car like vehicles have already been invented.
As you will see, the hybrid car / come flying vehicle concept is currently prohibitively expensive. This may reduce, but at the same time a whole new issue will need to be tackled – air roads. Returning to the pot-hole issue once again, you cannot imagine councils or governments sanctioning the development and implementation costs of complicated aerial traffic controls when they can’t afford to deal with the cost of repairing roads.
However, as much of the world has still got dirt roads, it may be possible that new aerial routes could work in certain places, but any such system is highly unlikely to replace existing operations in already developed mega-cities.
So, yes, Flying Cars will be invented. Indeed, Flying Cars have been invented. They are even likely to be affordable at some stage. However, aerial roads are another thing altogether.
