    Terrafugia Announces 'Transition' Flying Car First Test Flight

    Imagine seeing one of these at the pumps, eh? This morning, March 18th, 2009 at 9:30am a Press Conference was held at the Boston Museum of Science.

    Terrafugia, the company behind the 2-seat transforming plane/car dubbed the Transition announced news of the first successful test flight.

    It transforms in under 30 seconds, flies at over 115mph, and fits in a residential garage. A video of it in action is available HERE.

    This is the first news I have seen on The Jetsons style flying cars since the Moller was announced.

    For those interested, you can become a Sport Pilot in as little as 20 hours of flight time in a Transition-specific course. For existing pilots, get comfortable quickly with the familiarization training included with every Transition delivery.

    The price? Anticipated purchase price: $194,000.

    The only questions remaining on this transformer is: is it an Autobot or a Decepticon? :P

    the moller looks better but this is still a pretty cool feat of technology!

    maybe in about another decade we'll see a more slim lined-aerodynamic version which is more comercial... and better priced

    15 years ago from now, this looks like a science fiction, and now it's real. The technological jump is more of a teleport

    *edit*
    does it come with a sky-writing addon?

    can we fly to the moon?
