The Mind Behind the Flying Car's Design

Illustration for article titled The Mind Behind the Flying Cars Design

As strange as it is to say, we really do live in a world with a flying car. And a few decades from now, when we're all ditching gridlock for the open skies, we can partly thank Jens Martin Skibsted.

Skibsted and his firm are responsible for the Terrafugia flying car's new design, a folding-wing beauty that may well be parked in your driveway someday. In this extensive interview over at BoingBoing, he gives some fascinating insight into the challenges inherent in overcoming the practical concerns of such a futuristic project. Very much worth a read. [BoingBoing]
