Sky high

First News - - WORLD NEWS -

A new fly­ing car has taken off for the first time. The one-per­son ve­hi­cle uses pro­pel­lers to get air­borne, and can cur­rently hover for up to ten min­utes – although mak­ers SkyDrive hope to in­crease that to half an hour be­fore long. The com­pany’s boss, To­mo­hiro Fukuzawa, says there are more than 100 fly­ing car projects hap­pen­ing around the world, but that SkyDrive’s is one of the few to suc­cess­fully get a pas­sen­ger up into the air.
