New Hampshire is the first in the United States to allow futuristic vehicles. In 1788, this Member State was the first to have a constitution, and now it seems to be pioneers in other areas as well. They have passed a bill called Jetson, which will allow futuristic vehicles to be found on public roads in the future.
At the same time, it is important to emphasize that, in the case of flying cars, only ground transport has been allowed for the time being – they will not be allowed to take off – which is still a major step forward. The bill, by the way, is named after the American television cartoon series Jetson Family, which takes place in a world of floating houses and flying cars where everything happens at the touch of a button. The series was later made into a film.
For the time being, therefore, only road transport is allowed under the legislation, and the rules for conventional cars also apply to these special vehicles. While futuristic cars are still present worldwide at the level of promises and plans, there are, of course, companies that entered the development competition years ago.One of the big names is Terrafugia. The original Massachusetts startup was later acquired by automaker Geely of China. There seemed to be silence around them for a few years, but recently it was stated that 100 of them were working on a project related to the flying car, keeping in mind the issue of urban air mobility.
The other company is Samson Sky. The Oregon startup Switchblade vehicle was originally scheduled to launch in 2019, but this appears to be yet to come. Part of the whole picture is that even if there is a real car in the air, it will not perform at all as it was seen in the iconic cartoon series. Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) structures, which include helicopters and rotor-powered aircraft, are likely to be closer to reality.
