Is the future flying-electric cars?
Taxi firm Uber has ‘hailed’ former Nasa engineer Mark Moore as its Director of Engineering – Aviation. It’s hoped that Mr Moore will assist in elevating the company into flying car territory. Uber has already invested in self-driving cars in partnership with Volvo and Daimler but the new flying cars have the potential to improve urban mobility and give back daily commute time. Uber says that urban air transportation will use three-dimensional airspace to alleviate transportation congestion on the ground. They envisage a network of electric aircraft that will take off and land vertically.
Mark Moore says that he explored the flying car concept when he worked for Nasa. Evidently, ‘the electric propulsion is a potential game changer for aircraft technology’. He believes that the only thing holding back the project is battery storage. Well, we know that battery prices fell by 35 percent last year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Does this mean that Uber’s flying cars will soon be joining the mass market upward trajectory for electric cards in the next six years?
Slovakian firm Aeromobil is another company working on a flying car. The firm’s CEO Juraj Vaculík says (typically) that the flying car is intended for wealthy supercar buyers / flight enthusiasts and it’s expected to be available for sale in 2017. We can’t wait!
Is it the future indeed? We drew the Four of Wands, the Tower and the King of Swords.
The Four of Wands
This represents the flying cars. This card says that the hard work has been done in terms of pioneering companies such as Aeromobil. Although there is a sense of completion I feel that further research and development will help pave the way for mass products for the man on the street.
The King of Swords
This reveals intellect and fresh ideas. There is a clinical energy and an absence of emotion in this card, but I feel that these are the perfect ingredients to assist with the research and development.
This represents the new order. This card says that change can be beneficial however, let’s not throw out the baby with the bathwater. There is a sense of sudden insight and positive change.
Flying cars and electric cars are the future but the engineers still have some way to go. For now, let’s enjoy the cars we already have and if we’re not able to fly out of the traffic, there’s always the bus or the tram!
