This SF concept might become a reality soon, since Moller International have announced that they’re beginning the mass production.
According to Dr. Moller, the inventor, it’s “the ultimate off-road vehicle” able to travel over any surface. “Itâ€™s not a hovercraft, although its operation is just as easy. You can speed over rocks, swampland, fences, or log infested waterways with ease because youâ€™re not limited by the surface. The electronics keep the craft stabilized at no more than 10 feet altitude, which places the craft within ground effect where extra lift is obtained from operating near the ground. This lets you glide over terrain at 50 mph that would stop most other vehicles,”
The Company is set to offer the Jetson for sale only via an international auction. A potential bidder can become a â€œcandidate qualified to bidâ€ by establishing his or her ability to meet the $150,000 reserve. No deposit will be required until a successful bid occurs. Qualified participants will be advised on a regular basis as to the Jetsonâ€™s production status and its anticipated auction schedule.
Though, donâ€™t be too impatient because they have been saying for over 20 years now they are about 2 years away from production. In addition, there isnâ€™t any firm price and no information on number of production vehicles that will be available, not to mention that nobody knows how to become a qualified “candidate”.
