Japanese flying car successfully hovers during test flight

Japanese electronics manufacturer NEC Corporation unveiled a prototype flying car that stayed in the air for almost a minute during a test in Japan this week. About the size of an auto rickshaw and equipped with four horizontal propellers, the drone-like prototype reached a height of three metres during the test in Chiba, east of Tokyo. The flying car is designed for unmanned delivery flights. The Japanese government aims to start commercializing flying vehicles from around 2023, beginning with transportation of goods, and expanding to moving people closer to 2030.
