Flying Cars & Scuba Vehicles

Flying cars and aquatic vehicles may still sound like something out of classic James Bond movie, but believe it or not, there are companies out there that do produce these multi-land/multi-functional vehicles. The benefits are clear—for one, you’ll be able to avoid a lot of traffic—you wouldn’t need to switch transportation options if your destination requires sea or air travel.

Currently retailed at $279,000 Terrafugia’s Transition, this “roadable aircraft” is more driving airplane than a flying car. With its ability to fold in its wings, drivers are able to cruise down roads after landing—leading to a hassle free exit from the airport. One vehicle a bit more in line with what you can envision a flying car to be is under development by DARPA. Dubbed, the Transformer (TX), it’s a combination of a helicopter and Humvee designed for military use.

Moving from air to sea, not only have amphibious vehicles been around since WWII (the Duck, which was a water-based landing craft used to evacuate troops and deliver supplies) but current developments like WaterCar’s Python is the speed boat/car combo of choice. For a deeper adventure out in the sea, the Swiss-designed Rinspeed SQuba is not only an autonomous driving car but it can also go completely underwater.
