Lucky Judy Jetson. I grew up envying her life, how she could jump into a flying car and whisk away wherever she was going. I dreamed of the day when I could fly to school in an air taxi instead of plodding along on my own two feet.
Or worse, having to take the rolling yellow torture chamber known as a school bus.
Never did I imagine that flying taxis would become a reality in my lifetime.
But now they’re here.
Or at least coming to Dubai soon.
The question is, would I have the nerve to ride such a thing? To allow some command center to remotely guide the craft from point A to point B?
My overactive imagination swirls with possible doomsday scenarios. What if one of the taxis got out of control? Or it’s controller had a heart attack? Or a terrorist took over the command center?
But if given the chance, I think I’d go for it. Take a chance and soar over the city.
And imagine I was Judy Jetson, just for a moment.
Now if they could just bring Rosie the maid to life, I’d be all over that. No question about it.
What sci-fi technology would you most like see come to life?
