It’s been a long wait for cars that fly, but that flying car future might finally be here. Thanks to a revolution in technologies like batteries and algorithms, companies like Uber and Airbus are getting into the flying car game and pushing it forward, fast.

Flying cars are actually a long-overdue disruption not to cars, but to planes. The design of the commercial airplane hasn’t changed much in the last 70 years. But technology advances like lithium ion batteries, carbon fiber materials, and advanced computer algorithms have allowed many companies to think about building a flying car differently, with designs borrowed from quadcopters and hybrid planes.

A lot of big questions still need to be answered before flying cars take to the skies, like safety, infrastructure, and cost. But flying car advocates say we’re on the cusp of a new era in personal transportation.
