Malaysia is expected to unveil its first flying car prototype to the public this year. <-- Really?
Minister of Entrepreneur Development Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof said the prototype – fully driven by local technology is already available. <-- Wow!
“This year is a realistic target because we have the technology already. It is all about speed of implementation,” he added.
Redzuan said the car would be safe and capable of flying at low altitudes at a reasonable speed.<-- Driver, Biker now Flyer!
“The prototype would cost slightly over RM1 million to build,” he told reporters after launching the Growth Malaysia initiative here today.
Mohd Redzuan said through the flying car project, the government wanted to create an environment that stimulates people to think about new technologies. <-- Still wont be affordable to most people!
“We are providing the catalyst and ecosystem to stimulate the people to think beyond what we are capable of doing today,” he added.
According to Mohd Redzuan, the project will also utilise the country’s capabilities in the aerospace, drone, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and automotive sectors. <-- Really stimulated! “Malaysia has the skill set to excel in all these fields. We need to make full use of it, because the bottom line is we want to be a producing nation,” he said! <-- Hope to get a Fly Shot real soon!
