If you’ve ever experienced bumper-to-bumper traffic, pedestrians crossing the street against the light, or any other sort of vehicle-driven grievance, then you’ve certainly imagined slamming some button that’ll get your car flying away into the sunset. 

#CantWaitFlyingCars

A flying car gives future commuters several advantages (along with being just plain dope). For one thing, most people are already familiar with how to drive, meaning the transition to air-bound transportation won’t be difficult to learn. Then there’s the fact you’ll still maintain an adequate amount of protection (as opposed to just having two jets strapped to your back, and nothing else). It’s both practical and awesome, so win-win!

#CantWaitFlyingCars

The only way flying cars could suck is if some bureaucratic structure gets put into place in which the quality of air traffic declines, and aerial tolls get raised on a regular basis for no reason. Sigh.

Yes, we’re aware jetpacks already technically exist. But they’re, like, half-assed versions of something that is So. Much. Baller. When jetpacks become more accessible to the public in the form they’re meant to become, things are going to explode (just hopefully not literally).

#CantWaitFlyingCars

You can just strap on a quasi-fashionable vest, adjust your helmet, and then lift on off to whatever destination you’d like to travel—how could you not love that? Sure, they don’t really afford the protective shell of a car, but we’re sure some sort of safety net’s been incorporated into their design somehow. Or, at least, the helmet should be enough…

#CantWaitJetpacks

Jetpacks would also appear to require less fuel than a flying car would, benefitting the environment (and also your wallet). We can also only imagine they’ll only become more personalized as time goes on, so imagine the suped-up nonsense that the future holds (as well as all the TLC shows that are sure to come from it)?
