    We spend millions on infrastructure - blacktop, concrete.

    We have bailed out the automotive industry.

    Our President is asking for innovation.

    We have begun to consider rail seriously....

    Where is the technology for the hover car?  Is a hover car only the dream of the sci fi movies?

    Wikipedia report:  "The closest real-world device is the hovercraft, which elevates itself above a water or level hard surface using a cushion of air retained by a flexible skirt. Such devices are not considered to be hover cars, however—that term is used only for the fictional device. Examples of hover cars can be found in science fiction films or television series such as Blade Runner and Back to the Future Part II, and in futuristic racing video games, such as the F-Zero series, and the wipEout series."
