Well, i think flying cars won´t be ready until 50 years at least.

Nowadays, car´s companies are focusing on electric cars and they will have to earn the money they are investing in it. Maybe one solution to a faster development in flying cars would start with new companies supported by multinational companies to create new transport methods.

Also it´s very important the security factor, an accident with flying cars would finish in the majority of cases in a fatal way.

I think hyperloop and electric cars are likely to success than flying cars, at least in the following years

I saw a newspaper article the other day about the progress of Uber´s plans to begin a flying taxi service.  Somehow, they are already predicting the cost of the service to be not much higher than the regular Uber cars.  I searched the internet to see if I could find something to share.  Here is one https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/talkingtech/2018/05/18/ubers-flying-taxi-boss-takes-flight/623259002/

You can also find that there is a company which has made a flying car and is taking orders online for them.  You could say the flying car is already being seen (on an extremely limited basis-- a prototype more or less.)  How many flying cars we will see in major cities in 10 years is the question.  I think a lot depends on government regulation and the necessary infrastructure for them.  Self driving cars will probably be common before flying cars become more than a curiosity, unless they can make it financially feasible with things like Uber.

Flying cars will become a reality the next 5-10 years. A lot of money is invested by Silicone Giants like Uber on them. Currently,there are a lot of quite reliable prototypes already used for testing purposes.

Thereis a big project in the US linking Uber and NASA to make flying cars in some US town around 2022.

Exactly! And when I am reading or watching something it would fly right in front of my eyes, and maybe writing my thoughts also. I don't think it would fly away. Only in case if I want a new phone )) or car? ))
