A little surprised not to have seen some comment on here about Dr Moller's announcement that he has secured another $80M funding for his "Dream Sky Car"

Most of us couldn't get $10 funding for an aerial vehicle and with his track record? How does he do it?

Does anyone have a complete record of just how much has been poured down this black hole?

I'd take his claims with a large bag of salt.

Moller Skycar collection

Is that one still going? Must be thirty or forty years now. Michael Jackson was one of the first to order one.

It is one of those 'nearly viable' projects, obviously not practical, technically almost impossible but difficult to disprove in terms that would stand up in a court of law.

Lots of similarly marginal technical projects vie for cash support from people willing to believe technology can be pushed beyond physical limitations.

Moller?

Maybe is just a matter of finding folks that REALLY want such a thing.

Some camouflage paint and stockfeathers... might just fit into a distant world where runways are thin and imagination is long.

IS not like it doesna work, eh?

Can't knock a fella for pursuing his dream, eh?

Lose the nice paint, add Gatling cannons, & presto -- plausible control of another million km sq, mas o meno.
