It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a…Flying Car!

It's a Bird!  It's a Plane!  It's a...Flying Car!  I have a 32 mile, 50 minute commute to work.  Even the slightest delay on the roads, will cause me to be late.  What could improve my commute, you ask?  Well, the answer is a flying car!  Terrafugia, a Massachusetts company, created the TF-X which is described as a cross between a Google self-driving car, a helicopter, and a plane.

Supposedly, I only need to wait another eight years until I can pay a projected $270,000 for a brand new TF-X.  When the flying car concept was first founded by MIT in 2006, developers announced that we would be driving and flying these new car/planes by the year 2010.  Three years later, I have not seen any flying cars, but I am sure ready to ditch the traffic, avoid the school buses, and hit the skies.  Let’s just hope the exciting new changes don’t come with even longer lines at the DMV.

I'm probably one of the busiest people you'll ever meet. As a high school teacher by day and a grad school student/cook/athlete by night, I appreciate any technology that can help make my life more manageable. I also revel in anything that provides an escape from the world of grading and writing essays. I'm interested in using technology in the classroom and have vowed to never become that teacher who can't keep up with her students' cool new gadgets and sneaky ways of doing shady things during class.
