We all know that Tesla has revolutionized the auto industry in the last few years after the company has made us look closer at electric cars, a transportation solution we simply didn’t cared enough until now.
However Tesla is not going to follow on the footsteps of Uber or Airbus and will not build flying cars. The man in charge of Tesla, Elon Musk, believes that flying cars are stupid.
Why does Elon Musk think flying cars are stupid ? Because in order to stay in the air, these cars need to generate a constant push force and their propellers will generate a lot of noise which is going to disturb people. Moreover, in case of an accident the number of victims might be bigger because pieces of flying cars can injure or kill people on the ground. Imagine an accident in which two flying cars collide above a rock concert where tens of thousands of people are gathered. It’s a recipe for disaster and we have to agree.
And we also have to agree with Mr. Elon Musk regarding the noise too. Right now even professional drones generate a lot of noise, not to mention helicopters or other flying machines.
Elon Musk believes that the solution to overcrowded traffic in the cities are underground tunnels. This is why Musk wants to invest in a company specialized in digging tunnels.
Do you want to fly a car or want to drive underground ? I know what i want. It’s a no-brainer.
