‘Flying Car’ at 2020 Summer Olympics
A startup backed by Toyota has developed a test model that is expected to eventually develop into a tiny car, with a driver who will be able to light the Olympic torch in the 2020 Tokyo games.
The Japanese automaker has invested $386,000 in startup Cartivator Resource Management to work on ‘Sky Drive’. However, the project is still only a concoction of aluminum framing and eight propellers that barely gets off the ground and crashes after several seconds. Cartivator hopes to deliver a seamless transition from driving to flight.
