Even though no one ever talks about it, the government has been pushing the boundaries of technology for years.  If anyone is close to or already has the things we see in movies, it’s the government.  The government is now experimenting with making, FLYING TRANSFORMER humvees!  That’s right. You read that right.  Is this a good idea?  What could the applications of this be?  Are there not any better things to study?  Would you ever want one of these? Why or why not. (You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    i think this is a good idea and i wouldn’t want one of these because i don’t really like it and i don’t like to fly because i think that it’s going to crash so i wouldn’t want one of these

    I think it would be a fun idea to fly, but not in a car. It is probably more easier to wreck like that. Its also probably hard to control to, if you think about it. I honestly don’t think id drive a flying car (or even and underwater car). It seems cool, but just not for me. There is more things that they can study, but i think flying cars & underwater cars are too dangerous and i wouldn’t ever drive in one.

    I think this is a very bad idea because what if it messed up in the air? I think that people have better things to study than to have a car underwater or a flying car. I think that the people who might be interested in this technology would be the people who would take a risk! I would not want to have one of this because i would be too scare to drive one of this. I think this has been the craziest thing that has ever been built because why would anyone be driving this what if something happened while they are driving? there would be no way of contacting someone.

    I dont like this because it slower and it will take forever. And I think everybody won’t like that and not everybody will fit in the air with flying cars. I am not saying it not cool trust that will be a miracle. And what about signs and stop signs what do you just drive that stuff won’t all be in the air.

    I think that it is a good idea. If u really sit down and just thing that’ s less pollution that goes into our ozone layer. There are a lot of better things like curing cancer, try to help out schools and fix thing, and make sure everything is up to date. I would buy one cause i think it is cool and very interesting to learn about. But i wouldn’t buy it One: to much money. Two: it would have to be up to date. Three: cause i think it might end up like crap.

    these cars look cool but they would cost to much. i would want one but i would wast so much money. plus if people stared to buy fly cars they would have lots of problems because they might not now how to fly that and stuff. and the one that goes underwater is not much of a good idea because you might end up messing with the animals who live down their. the only thing i like is that the car can drive to you without any body in their.

    Yes i would want one of these so i can fly and not get in accidents. There are better things to study but this is cool. I think the goverment needs them for secret missions. It would probably cost millions of dollars. but it could help old people so they can fly insted of drive.

    I think this is a crazy idea but a good idea at the same time. They come out with a lot of crazy stuff like flying cars. The applications could be that maybe if one of the soldiers get hurt they can get help fast. Yes there are better things to study. But no I wouldn’t get one of those. All I would need is a jet.

    I was thinking that these cars could be too much for us. Some people are insane so let’s not go there. The cars are cool even that flying one. I thought it was on strings and I still do. The underwater car is cool to replace subs. One thing that’s bad is how we can breath in it. These are good things to study and I would want one because they are cool.

    I think it would be a fun idea to fly. The bad thing is if it runs out of gas it would crush the things below. The good thing is you would get somewhere quicker. The other reason its a bad idea is it would cost ALOT of money! Those are my reasons.

    After watching the videos it seems like it could be a good idea, but also a bad one. For the good idea it is better transportation. But for the bad idea it might take a while to learn how to drive. I guess they can’t come up with something new to study. I wouldn’t want one of these because first of all I have never rode an a airplane so I have never been up in the air. And I might freak out. I’m just saying.

    Transformer is one of the movies and the cars that can transform into robots that was in a different kind of planet did they come from then. But the transformer that they have come to earth and to find the cube they was looking for too. Transformer they have come to help them but they was follow in the movies by mega tron army then and that was in the movie.

    This is not a good idea because if people are in these and they are driving and they start flying they could crash. Cause if they try to land it could be off and they could crash into a tree. And if they get the car that can go in the water they could drowned. And they could die. That is why this is a bad idea.

    I do think they should focus there money on somthing else but who cares THOSE ARE THE COOLEST CARS EVER. aqua and air born cars today i never thought i would be alive to see flying cars it is revilutionary but is it the best idea. i might not be happy about it but it might also be a bad idea.i mean once people use flying cars for the first time whos going to know how to fly them. we had the same problem in 1876 or something when people first invented the car.

    This is awesome. A flying car in this century, its genius. I watched the videos and thought that they were REDONKULUS!!! I would love to have one of those cars and it would be awesome because nobody I know has ever flown in a car before. It would be the coolest thing to have and it is a REDONKULUS idea.

    I think it would be cool to have a flying car, when new things come out there up in the money. But it shouldn’t be a car. But i think the car that car drive and go under water is pretty cool. But it also could be dangerous. I think they should study and work hard on these inventions.

    I think this is a good idea. I think so because I know if they do come out with flying cars, then only rich people will buy them. And the people that make kinda good money would still be driving cars so there wouldn’t be as much traffic. Less traffic means less wrecks and less wrecks means less deaths. That is good if there’s less deaths!

    I DONT REALLY CARE ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT DOESENT SEEM LIKE THAT MUH OF A GOOD IDEAA. BECAUSE FLYING CARS WONT REALLY HELP MUCH BECUASE THE REGULAR CARS AINT EVEN RIGHT SO WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO MOVE ON TO FLYEN CARS. AND BIRDS WILL BE FLYEN IN YOUR WINDOW, AND WHAT IF YOUR FLYING CAR RUNS OUT OF GAS OR BREAKS DOWN YOUR CARS JUST GONNA FALL. AND SLATT YOUR DEAD…

    I really don’t think it is a good idea. Ya i think it would be cool but alot more dangerous. The car recks on the ground are bad enough. When two cars in the sky and they collide there will be no survivors. Also what about airplanes, tall buildings, stuff like that. But the plus side is YOUR FLYING!!!!! Thats what i think.

    well hows traffic going to be in the air ? what if a car gets hit by an airplane. and you cant pull over to a curb if you really needed to. what if a drunk driver crashes into a house ? or what if your car runs out of gas ? it will crash into whatever is under it !! dude no thanks. im straight. its an easier way to crash and its not that great of an idea. what about tall buildings ? the plus side is you wont hit animals 🙂 but u no i guess the government can always inprove on them but im scared of heights soo yeuhh….

    That’s a terrible idea. A flying car really? It is probably more dangerous in the air than on ground. How are you supposed to know where you are going? And what about stop signs? We are just gonna get in more crashes than we already are. And underwater cars that’s not a good idea either what about the fish what if you run over them or something. None of it is a good idea.

    No, cause it’s just gonna make global warming worse and its gonna pollute the air. It’s also A bad idea because the police complains bout catching criminals that run from them, how are they gonna catch them in air, jump at them??!! Nobody could afford to buy except really rich people so how are they gonna sail? But it would be good for the army because they could catch enemies easier. That’s what I think! 🙂

    it would be kind of fun to have flying cars because if there is a lot of traffic and you have a certain car you can just fly over them. it would also be fun to fly around and fly on top of water. people would like to have fun cars that fly and drive fast and look pretty.

    I think this is a cool idea. it would be quicker than on the ground cause then you wouldn’t have to follow the road, you could take shortcuts. it would be bad though cause you couldn’t survive crashing from the air and if the car broke down, there would be nothing you could do. so it can be a good idea, and a bad idea.

    i think that is really COOL idea but i don’t want to ride it in the air or under water. the reason why is because what happens if you crash run out of gas and get lost??? and where do land and takeoff after you get gas. now for the underwater one, i think it is COOL too but still no. what happens if you crash, run out of gas, or the engine messes up? and what do u use for gas? id it is gasoline no we don’t need to pollute the water too! from Jesse
