Hovercars in Israel

Here a few details of the forthcoming hovercar system in Israel, operational in 2015. Initially the cars will go about 43 miles per hour, following a 1,640-foot-long test guideway at the Israel Aerospace Industries campus.

Once testing is complete, the city of Tel Aviv will construct a 4.3-mile-long guideway, with 2-seater cars capable of 150 mph. If and when that succeeds, traffic as we know it will fade into history.

There are no cup holders, however.
