AN exciting new piece of technology is nowhere near ready and will never come into widespread use.
The ZoomFlyer, a voice-activated, fully automated flying car, will revolutionise travel once a way has been found to turn the conceptual drawings into an actual thing.
Designer Stephen Malley said: Imagine a car that can be told to fly to New York while you catch up on work or relax with a drink. If you know how to make one of those, please get in touch.
Despite having some cool pictures of what the ZoomFlyer will look like, no one has yet invented the low-temperature jet engines we need to prevent it incinerating your kids during the school run.
Even if we could build the ZoomFlyer, the only people who could afford it would be the US military, and they already have much cheaper ways of blowing up Afghan weddings.
Malley said the future of the ZoomFlyer project now depended on aliens visiting earth and sharing their advanced technology.
He added: With our next project were going to make sure we can actually build it before we announce it to the worlds media. Itll probably be a torch with an FM radio, something like that.
