From flying cars....
The Moller M400 Skycar is a four-seat motor which can unfold its wings in seconds and then soar through the air at up to 600kph (375mph) for a distance of 1,200km (750 miles). It is designed to be far simpler to fly than a helicopter and it boasts that its fuel consumption is lower than that of a Land Rover or Porsche. The Skycar has cost its Californian developers a reported £135million and is set to retail for £675,000 when it goes on sale in 2012.
To a jetpack - with the news that a daredevil wearing a jet pack has flown across a 1,500-foot-wide canyon in southern Colorado. We are living in the future, clearly.
Eric Scott took 21 seconds to cross the Royal Gorge at 75 mph on Monday, according to his sponsors, energy drink peddlers the Go Fast Sports & Beverage company.
They also say that he didn't use a parachute while flying across the 1,100-foot-deep canyon. He was wearing a jet pack powered by hydrogen peroxide and developed by Jet Pack International.
