A startup backed by the Japanese automaker has developed a test model that engineers hope will eventually develop into a tiny car with a driver who'll be able to light the Olympic torch in the 2020 Tokyo games. For now, however, the project is a concoction of aluminum framing and eight propellers that barely gets off the ground and crashes after several seconds.

Arguments

  • Yes, Toyota and other large car companies have money to spend and I'm sure it would work by then and possibly be out in production by then as well.
  • I think that either them or someone else will make technology work. This startup is a very small investment and a few may likely fail before they learn from others mistakes and will become sort of successful.  One day we will be questioning why cars didn't fly and look at current ground transportation similarly as we look today at buggies.

    I guess it all depends on their source of fuel. The oil industry does not like competition, which is why hydrogen cars never took off.
