We will soon be living and moving around just like the Jetsons!!
Ant writes “CBS News has an article, images, and a free streaming video clip of Elwood (Woody) Norris’ invention of a working flying machine, AirScooter. He asked one of his test pilots to demonstrate it for 60 Minutes on a hilltop outside San Diego, California. It can fly for 2 hours at 55 mph, and go up to 10,000 feet above sea level. This week, he will receive America’s top prize for invention. It’s called the Lemelson-MIT award — a half-million dollar cash prize to honor his life’s work, which includes a brand new personal flying machine. Woody Norris’ and others’ inventions are for NASA’s ‘The Highway in the Sky.’ It is a computer system designed to let millions of people fly whenever they please, and take off and land from wherever they please, in their very own vehicles.”
