FLYING CAR

Everybody has dreamed of the flying car whilst stuck in traffic but inventors in the past have already built the flying car.
 

http://www.newscientist.com/ns/19990529/imjustflyi.html  The ConvAIRCAR (1947) was not the first flying car to make it to the drawing board. That honor goes to the Curtiss Autoplane of 1917.

In 1946, at the age of 31, Robert Fulton, Jr of Danbury Connecticut designed the Airphibian craft capable of commandeering both the highways and the skyways of the land. In less than five minutes, and it five steps without tools, the Airphibian converts from plane to car (and vice versa).

According to a 1989 article in Smithsonian, over 30 patents for flying cars have been filed this century in the United States alone; usually boasting fanciful names like Aerocar, Autoplane, Airphibian, and Skycar.

The inventors have not stopped and there might soon be another flying car on the market.
