No technological dream has captured the minds of the media quite like the flying car. Marcus Leng of Blackfly believes his invention will allow it to become a reality. CBS News correspondent John Blackstone, who has chased down the flying car fantasy for 30 years, reports on this Silicon Valley innovator.

i want one, red please.

Absurd idea on its face. I spend 5 minutes per day on the freeway.. and even in that short time the number of stupid drivers doing exceptionally stupid things is quite high. Now we are going to let those same folks fly? Someone is kidding, YES?
Hunter Hughes
Called a helicopter people!
What is the point of it being shaped like a boat, and why fly at a 45 degree angle.

This will never become a success I think, what if the batteries die or catch fire in mid flight? No redundancy at all if you ask me. Self driving cars are the best option, I mean cars without a steering wheel. In the future I do not want to own a car. I want to order one when I need it and have it drive me to work and home from work. I want to sit in it (alone or with family) and tell it where I want to go. Interior should be like a train cabin, two couches facing each other and maybe a small folding table for your laptop or book or whatever.

What happens when it just stops mid-air?

2019-1988=31 years yea!!!! Math
Paramotors are probably the cheapest way of flying, plus they aren't instantly fatal if the engine dies.

What happens to the plane when there is a break in the power supply to the engines? Will he not fall like a brick to earth? The helicopter pilot has autorotation in stock and the aircraft pilot glides. I would not get into this flying coffin. (Well, he has a chair to catapult, because an ordinary rescue parachute will not fill up at the low cruising altitude of this drone.

Michigan has this already in fact I saw it flying. I think tested by Ford for dozens of years

There are so many things wrong with this idea, planes and helicopters exist the way they do for a reason. People will only die in this.
Keith Keith
Another man made thing that causes danger to the people both inside that thing but also the people on the ground.
She is georgeous! Indian beauty.
what happens when the battery dies - or there is some type of electric failure - during flight?
What if a motor fails?
john alexander
nothing will work until they , maybe me, make it the same size as a car. 2 seater car = 2 seater plane car / 4 seater and so on.... not to mention the weather and the dmv/chassis no.
H&S Clays
Showing same video clips for years. Is this just a rehash for CBS News?
Danielle king
flying is extremly dangerous and driving accidents in the air will be fatal nearly everytime
Tom Meyers
It will start with drone Amazon deliveries. Then drones will be used in conjunction with facial recognition to get black and brown crime under control. Then flying cars.
Tom Meyers
Meanwhile in Africa......huts.
Fascism InOurSchools
Notice they don't mention "Bird Strikes "? They failed to mention that you will have bugs the size of pigeons, crows, and seagulls!!! Bahaha!!!

The Country The World Says Doesn't Flying car innovator believes he can finally 5 months ago   13:09

Edit: In case it isn't clear in the video, this is meant to be a story of Artsakh, from the view of Artsakh. It isn't unemotional geopolitics. The Armenians are in no ways saints, and the Azeri in no way demons. The Azeri refugees forced from their homes in the external lands that Artsakhians took in the war (even against their own internal judgement) for military purposes have every right to be upset and want it back. As I say in every video, please research this all on your own. There is a very deep, nuanced, interesting story to be told from all sides. This one just happens to be from Artsakh.

By admitting this country exists, we've become criminals. And while taking risks is part of our job, nobody forces us to make the choices we make. But that's not the case everywhere. Sometimes, existence itself is a risk. You're born into it. This is Artsakh.

If you would like to visit Artsakh, I'd highly recommend staying with Saro Saryan in Shushi. His family are the living embodiment of the community, fashioned together into a wonderful guest house atmosphere. His 23 year old soldier, diplomat, lawyer son is the focus of our next episode, which I hope you'll stick around for.
