    Don't think so.

    You do not know what operational/comfort parameters would exist for such a vehicle. what if you had no control, completely automated...what if the crash rate was excessively high along with the fatalities since you would be airborne...what if you had to be strapped into a cockpit with no room for comfort due to weight restrictions....what if what if what if????

    there's no guarentee there would be any demand for such a vehicle....

    First off--guarantee. I would think the grammar Nazi would be able to spell.

    Second-- Your post is ridiculous. Sorry, next time I'll post every operational condition..

    Why wander off into flying cars? Go back to velcro. There was a perfectly adaquate existing product that met all existing demand. Velcro just supplanted some of the demand. If never invented it wouldn't have mattered, buttons and zippers would have simply had a bigger market. So the need wasn't for velcro, it was for clothing closures. A lot of products, velcro being one, get invented by accident. No focus group involved.

    Just thought it illustrated the point easier. Same focus group--would you buy a clothing closure product that was easier and cheaper? I think most people would say yes.

    No argument that things get invented by accident. My point is only that there can and is demand for products that don't exist.

    How an someone want something that they don't know exists because it doesn't exist?

    It's a bit of a theoretical exercise, but the demand is there even if the product isn't. Would I buy a flying car if it existed for $5K. Damn right. At that price, there would be large demand. Even though the product doesn't exist.

    Companies do focus groups all the time to get information on what demand exists for products that haven't been created yet. Often before they spend on R&D.
