Flying Cars the way of the Future?

What if you could travel "as the crow flies" with no more of a carbon footprint than taking your SUV? This is the claim made by Moller and their new M400 Skycar.

This ethanol fueled vehicle takes off and lands vertically requiring only 35 feet in diameter of landing space. It carries four passengers up to 36,000 feet at 360 miles per hour. A single tank could carry you as far as 750 miles -- that's New York, NY to Louisville KY.

Now granted, you can't actually purchase a Skycar yet for under 3.5 million but Moller is happy to take a deposit! Check out some of the other flying cars in the works.
