Uber-Is-Working-on-Flying-Cars-new

Well it’s about damn time. We’ve been promised flying cars since sci-fi films began making bold predictions about the year 2000. Well, George Jetson, that future may soon be a reality. Uber just shared a white paper for Uber Elevate, an on-demand service that will let people rent flying “cars.” It should be noted, however, that these cars look an awful lot like helicopters, but we won’t be picky. The aircrafts would take off and land vertically and help ease the pain of traffic and long commutes. Uber is working with NASA on the logistics, having signed a Space Act Agreement that is meant to tackle the air traffic system for these flying cars, which will obviously be one of the largest hurdles. While Uber Elevate was first unveiled last year, this announcement presents significant steps towards its realization, including a target date of the year 2020. Next up: food in pill form.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
