Stay on target Toyota’s Electric Vehicle Will Transport 2020 Olympic Athletes, VisitorsNothin’ But Net for Toyota’s Guinness Record-Winning Basketball Bot It looks like we’re closer to flying cars than ever with the advent of Toyota’s investment of about $386,000 yen into a startup called Cartivator Resource Management, who hopes to create a flying car like those we’ve seen on the silver screen. The car would be called the SkyDrive, and it would be able to fly about 33 feet above the ground while moving at 62 miles an hour. If the car is actually created, Toyota plans even to use it to light the torch at the 2020 Olympics, which will be held in Tokyo. If that doesn’t sound absolutely crazy to you and excite you in ways that other tech hasn’t done in some time, then I don’t know what to tell you!Of course, it’s not just as simple as throwing a flying car together and watching it zoom through the sky. Cartivator is currently working on its first test as of June 3 with a very early model of SkyDrive, and it’s hardly suited for automobile work just yet. The good news is that the group is looking to ready its flying car prototype for testing by human drivers by 2019, which is a pretty impressive goal to have when you consider self-driving car tech itself is still in its infancy. On its first test, it ended up crash landing after flying about six feet into the air, but at least it’s got moxie.The future is likely going to be rife with self-driving cars before flying cars get to a point where they’d be ready like the Jetsons’ cars all the way up in the sky, but it looks like there are plenty of groups out there looking to make this fantastical notion of a reality. Whichever way you slice it, however, it’s a very cool project that we’ll hopefully see come together by time for the Olympics.
