5. AIRBUS POP.UP
To be clear, we’re not going to see the Airbus Pop.Up in production anytime soon. This is very much a concept. However, it is worth including in the list for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it isn’t just a drawing. A real concept has been built, though it’s not a working prototype. Second, it has been created by Airbus and Italdesign. When a large airplane manufacturer pens a flying car, you know the idea is gaining traction. Airbus is a company with the means to get into the flying-car business. On the downside, it’s not very cool. It’s essentially a taxi. But we love the drone-like rotor idea.
