Back in the day, futurists used to predict that we'd all be commuting to work in flying cars. Even as recently as Bladerunner, flying cars figure prominently. So far, these visions have failed to materialize.
But that could be changing. I just caught a cool clip of the new Air Scooter on CNN.com (look in the video section). It's a personal helicopter that will retail for the cost of a Lexus. Best thing about it is that it is classified as an ultralight... which means you don't need a pilot's license to fly it. Check out their website here for more details.
