There could be propellers in our vehicles’ future.
Testing is underway on a new propeller-driven prototype of a "flying car." The test model is being developed by the Japanese company Cartivator in partnership with Toyota. The test model took off several times, hovering at eye level for a few seconds before making a hard landing.
