BMW's second installment of Wherever You Want To Go opens up with a question we've all asked: Why are there still no flying cars? But rather than tackle the safety, mechanical and infrastructure questions, BMW takes a bird's eye view of how transportation technology has – and hasn't – evolved since the Wright Brothers' first flight. While the six-minute short tackles a range of topics, there's far less meat than one would hope. Thankfully, futurist and conceptual designer Syd Mead (he of Blade Runner, Alien and Tron fame) plays a big role in The Future Just Isn't What It Used To Be, providing some perspective on where we've been, where we are and how to predict what the future holds. Check it out below.
