So back in the day the vision of the future included flying cars and sky cities. What could possibly make someone think there would be anyplace for a flying car? Ignorance? Our highways are way too permanent for the introduction of any new type of transport, just modified versions to save money(hybrids, ect.). What in our fantasy, in the year 2008, do we imagine for the future that we might not be thinking through? Teleporters? A cure for cancer? basically this tread is asking: flying cars is to 1950 as ____________ is to 2008.
