Its been a crazy day in the virtual Autoblog office. There was lots of patting on the back early in the day, a bevy of posts, then I had to go to jury duty of all things. Now I'm back to find this gem of a story in my Inbox sent from a very friendly PR person. BusinessWeek Online reports that personal flying devices are not that far a field from realty and major car makers like Honda and Toyota are developing such devices. While I could see many problems with personal aircraft replacing cars, air taxis that hold four to eight people might make a lot of sense for those who commute long distances on a daily basis. Or who need to travel 1-2 hours for business but don't want to pay for airfare. It's an intriguing story regardless and makes me think by the time I'm finally driving at my best I'm going to need to learn how to fly.
