The hits from the Geneva Motor Show just keep on coming because the Airbus flying car concept also drives. Built in partnership with Italdesign, the Airbus Pop.Up Concept is part flying car, part drone and part autonomous personal transportation vehicle. The modular concept centers around a part system that involves a capsule, flying apparatus and set of wheels. In other words, when you summon the intelligent Pop.Up you can use it in both flying and driving modes without ever having to get out of the comfy capsule. You could, in theory, be flying high above the crowded city streets below in a fully-electric and zero-emission vehicle that can also land on a wheeled driving platform to get you to your final destination. Airbus expects something like this concept to get off the ground within the next five to ten years, but there are still quite a few issues, of course, like battery life, legal regulations and overall feasibility that need to be worked out before a vehicle like this becomes viable.
