Entecho Hoverpad Is A Step Closer To Flying Cars

Flying cars have long been predicted as a possibility in the future, but there has been very little progress made with this advanced form of technology. Thankfully, an Australian company called Entecho have developed hover technology. The hover car is powered by a series of large blades, which spin at very high rates to allow the vehicle to hover. The skirt around the edge of the vehicle, allow for directional manipulation, aka steering.

Surprisingly, the hoverpod can reach speeds up to 120 kmh, with a range of 3 km. We are told that the pod can hover up to 1.5 metres above the ground and can accommodate three passengers. The vehicle is safe, in the sense that the powerful blades are not exposed, but packed away under the body of the vehicle.
The vehicle is still under development, and actually has been so for the last few years.

It's not quite a flying car, but it's definitely one step closer to opening up the possibility of such technology in the not so distant future.
