"A vehicle that is self-contained and that looks essentially the same whether
it flies or is on the ground is a real flying car to me. It uses an
aerodyne. You can have turbines inside the car, the bottom of the car might
have to have big vents or something. Essentially you generate all the power
inside it so you don't have to have extendable wings and all this mechanical
nonsense to contend with. It's the same car, but flies. That makes it even
better, because when it's flying it looks basically like it does rolling
along the ground. But you make the transfer without the vehicle's changing
shape. That makes it more magical."
