Jetson ONE Personal Electric Aerial Vehicle

The Jetson ONE will be in production in 2022, so you'd better reserve your flying car now.

(Jetson ONE Personal Electric Aerial Vehicle video)

the Jetson ONE is equipped with LiDAR sensors that drive terrain tracking and obstacle avoidance.

When the first Jetson ONEís make their way to customers next year, they will see flight times of 20 minutes (85kg /187 lbs pilot weight) and will be able to fly at a top speed of 102 km/h (63mph). The top speed on the ONE is currently computer limited.

Co-founder Peter Ternstrom spoke about the Jetsonís goals now that its flagship eVTOL has officially launched:

"Our mission is to make flight available to everyone. The Jetson ONE is an electric helicopter that you can own and fly. We intend to make everyone a pilot."

(Via electrek.)

The Jetson ONE Personal Electric Aerial Vehicle seems to be modeled on the flying car of my childhood, from the Jetsons family cartoon series.
