The Tama Monorail followed the road in the air. The view from the inside of the monorail, which turned left and right so much that sometimes I was afraid it would hit a building on the side of the road, reminded me of the view from the window of a flying car. When the world is filled with flying cars like the DeLorean from Back to the Future, everyone will be able to experience this kind of view from behind the steering wheel.
According to a report by Mitsubishi Research Institute, the availability of flying cars for personal use in Japan will not be available until 2030. 2030 may sound far off in the future, but it is actually not that far off. Is this true? Has the technology already evolved to the point where it can be used by the general public? It is hard to believe.
Even if the technology has evolved, I am concerned about the driving skills of the people who control it. Even now, even a car running on a flat surface can be operated incorrectly. Just paying attention to the front, rear, left, and right is difficult enough, but now we have to add up and down to that. Even if technology evolves, I have a feeling that human abilities will not be able to catch up anytime soon.
