If they don’t play techno music while racing they better at least have power weapons!

Every time I read about these things I get so upset. I had a design for one of these in the 80s and my physics teacher told me it was impossible and discouraged me from trying to make it work.

Well, you know what you have to do now.

Yes you totally invented this as a no name student 40 years ago. And I’m a wakandan Oompa Loompa


jjj49er t1_j339cah wrote

I didn't invent it. I never made it. I only had the plans drawn up for it. I wasn't trying to impress anyone. I doubt I'm the first one to have that idea. I bet others were also told by professionals and scholars that it wasn't possible. My point was: don't listen to people when they say you can't do something.

I can't say that I would have perfected it, or even been able to market it, but I kick myself for not even trying, just because someone I looked up to said it wouldn't work.

i had this with solar powered LED light, for areas without power, so people can do stuff at night. tolf not doable, failing grade. later found proff won award for similar idea. one of several reasons i dropped out.

My exes dad had the idea for the salad spinner, and his dad took him to a patent office and gave his idea away to the person there because it was “stupid and nobody would use it” and I’m sure we all know how that went.. lol… He would get drunk and sadly rant about it pretty often 😅😕

If you had it in you, you'd have ignored him and kept going


jjj49er t1_j3731fz wrote

I started, but I hit a tiny snag and I gave up because his message of "it can't be done" kept running through my mind. I was very easily influenced by "authority figures" when I was younger.


RushEm2TheDirt t1_j376e9d wrote

I realize what I said had a bit of a nasty delivery, but I swear I meant well. It's just one of those "I could've/would've if only x didn't happen" that people hold onto that build resentment. Resentment can manifest itself in our physical and mental health in ways people might not even notice, and release of said resentment can be astounding. ❤️

I don't dwell on it. I just get reminded every time I see a story like this. It's not my white whale.


arguix t1_j3flwrp wrote

flip this, decide your mind will "invent something that you can and will make now, doable and appropriate for your current situation in life" and just keep obsess over, with feeling.

get back to me in month or year. everything can and will change

This doesn't sound like a real thing. No specs on it or actual pics.
Looks cool, but I think that's all there is.

What the fuck is the difference between a flying face car and a helicopter or plane?


Impossible_Garbage_4 t1_j34a31z wrote

A flying face car would have wheels allowing it to drive at standard driving speeds I suppose? A plane can’t do that and helicopters don’t have wheels typically


Scrotemeal69 t1_j3fas0q wrote

It would be so much easier to just strap a Honda Civic to the bottom of a helicopter than build a flying car


Impossible_Garbage_4 t1_j3guvlq wrote

Yeah but that wouldn’t be a flying car, that’d be a helicopter welded to an car. It probably wouldn’t even be able to fly


Korblox101 t1_j35lkb7 wrote

Perhaps it’s more of a hovercraft, in that it can only hover a short length above the ground.


halfaura t1_j331xki wrote

Are there any real pictures or videos of it? I can only find rendered images and videos.


Impossible_Garbage_4 t1_j349xgl wrote

It likely hasn’t been built yet


halfaura t1_j3d37v7 wrote

Sad days. I want to know if it is real or just a marketing scam. Hoping it is real.


Impossible_Garbage_4 t1_j3d3qmg wrote

Yeah, they’ve probably got a concept planned out and are working in prototypes. They’ve somewhat announced it now to generate PR and help raise their stocks so they have some funds for designing and building

You have to fly over the X to activate rockets. Arrows give you a speed boost.
