Microblog: Yeah, and Cars May FLY

No, really. A four year old Massachusetts company called Terrafugia that was founded by some MIT graduates is almost ready to take their flying car (or driving plane, if you prefer) out for it's first, real life test flight late this month or early February.

If all goes well - the $148,000 little two seater called "Transition" will make some history. Not quite Wright Brothers stuff, but hey, how many times have you seen that 1950's stock footage of that one guy that did the same thing (along with the footage of the dishwasher that pops out of the middle of the kitchen) - and wonder - hey, that's pretty cool.

It may soon be your chance... but you'll have to get in line. Apparently, the company has received more than 40 pre-orders for the thing. Huh. Who would have guessed?
