The Washington Post brings to attention the Speeder, a $380,000 vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft capable of travelling at over 240km/h for a distance of 72 km.

“This is a compact machine, like a motorcycle, that can take off vertically from your front lawn or driveway and land on the other side of the city in a similar position,” said Mayman, who famously made a jet-pack flight around the Statue of Liberty in 2015. “That kind of convenience and size is what we’ve all dreamed about, but this idea has always been treated like science fiction.”
