Flying car prototype tested in Japan and hovers above ground

Japanese electronics maker NEC has unveiled its ‘flying car’ – a large drone-like machine with four propellers which could be available by the 2030s. The test flight saw it hover steadily for about a minute ten feet above the ground inside a gigantic cage designed to protect onlookers watching at an NEC facility in a Tokyo suburb. The preparations such as the repeated checks on the machine and warnings to reporters to wear helmets took up more time than the two brief demonstrations.

    The last thing we want is aerial traffic jams

  3. PirateChucker on September 19, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    Where’s the forward & reverse thrust capabilities that actually makes this a driveable car. All I see is a quad-copter with vertical take-off & landing.

    I feel not safe , why dont use magnetic wave for that car

    That’s not a car it’s a small plane with wheels

  7. Speed King on September 19, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    Noisy, Dangerous, Unstable.
    Tell me it could fly with just 2 engines if 2 others fail… maybe then it could be considered marginally safe.

    Thats Cool And All, But *Whats The Max Altitude?*

  9. Klakkinkitty Kat on September 19, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    This is cheesy ! I can’t wait till they get anti gravity

    What a piece of crap

  12. Nat Sashikata on September 19, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    Its too big, must be more compact?

  13. Eli Eli on September 19, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    reinventing wheel? in this case helicopter? who will drive it? imagine incidents, or if not only for rich?

  14. Dougie Quick on September 19, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    PUSSIES! Big WOW! Take that sucker out of the cage and FLY it! Get IN and FLY!

  15. mas bro on September 19, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    this is kamen rider vehicle. english in japan accent. 😁

  16. Typical_honeyTM on September 19, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    What if 2 flying cars crash what would happen?

  17. LAWRENCE 2.0 on September 19, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Bro Japan is d future

  18. lo2740 on September 19, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    it looks so bad and unstable, not to mention the lawn mower sound. Flying coffin with four side head choppers

  19. Gravypot Media on September 19, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    5 mins later we moved 2 metres

  20. DEEPAK JOSHI on September 19, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    Why this card does seem to struggling with wind to fly…

  21. Brain Sample on September 19, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    can you imagine your obese neighbors trying to take off ? .

  22. Soren Colfax on September 19, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    Republic Gunship time

  23. Rob Van Gessel on September 19, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    Well. A ways to go yet. Sounds like a bunch of obnoxious leafblowers, and hasn’t the velocity to even take a paramotor.

  24. Christian Kitzke on September 19, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    WHAT? I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND YOU, HERE IT IS SO LOUD! THAT’S THE FUTURE?

  25. faiz abbas on September 19, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    I bet they made this to stop that analogy everyone uses

  26. M. Saleh on September 19, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    Not hating or anything, but can we all agree that this is stupid idea. I mean those quadcopters, drones with quad rotors, flying around with so much noise, lifting people around cities. Basically they’re like helicopters. This isn’t the future I want to see. What about focusing on anti-gravity, like flying saucers. I know the US Gov are doing a lot of secrete tests in their base.

  27. Q & A on September 19, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    That’s not an Uber, it’s an Aaaahber!!

  28. Carlos Castro on September 19, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Toyota first prototype flying car I hope I’m still alive when they finally prefect the flying car like in star wars or the fifth element. The us needs to step up their game and stop being idiots…. And this is coming from someone who lives in the us. We need to stop all this useless fighting and focus on technology so we can hit star trek age.

  29. MrHazzoUK on September 19, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    Meanwhile in Iran

    *discovers fire*

  30. joaquim pipa on September 19, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    I notice that it lifts from the front wheel, and lands on the back two wheels, it’s OK, but will tip even more when carrying a 200 lb person, It still needs tweaking.

  31. InertialSnail87 on September 19, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    Here we are in the future
    Here we are in the future and its bright, nothing to fear no one to fight
    When i was in the flying car and broke: I NEED TO FEAR I CANNOT FIGHT!!!!

  32. patrick devitt on September 19, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    Haven’t the Saudis ALREADY got this?

  33. LegendaryFoxx YT on September 19, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    Who is here during Covid 2020 and tired of hearing people hating on China?

  34. Dougie Quick on September 19, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    Connected CORD? = Total FAIL …Cage? =FAIL No human on board?= FAIL … 10′ off ground for 5 seconds? = FAIL By comparison why were Wight brothers a total success by comparison? Cause they climbed on FLEW! Right out in front of the world they FLEW! Disconnect the cheesy cord wheel that sucker out of the cage and SOMEONE get IN iT and FLY the damn thing! Seriously??

  35. bruhhh beast on September 19, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    Maybe after 10 years it would be perfect

  36. Art sanchez on September 19, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    If you thought there were a lot bad drivers out there as is, just wait lol

  37. Why? on September 19, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Flying car or cheaper helicopter? Any Which Way a lot of people will die

  38. Leon on September 19, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    Hope this will be available in Manila once it perfectly done. Hope ASAP!

  39. anik suman on September 19, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Not convinced. We expected a better stuff from Japan. Flying car development gone far ahead than this prototype. There is kitty hawk by Google. And terafuiga. Etc. Automobile, Japan did great. But here, thy are legging behind.
