Futurama just got a little closer to being the future.
A startup called SkyDrive released a video of a pilot flying a car over the Toyota Test Field in Toyota, Japan. Toyota finances the company, and the project has been years in the making. The ultimate goal: Create a flying taxi by 2023.
Kind of gives new meaning to the concept of Lyft.
“Of the world’s more than 100 flying car projects, only a handful has succeeded with a person on board,” company CEO Tomohiro Fukuzawa told The Associated Press. “I hope many people will want to ride it and feel safe.”
