The world’s first flying car you can actually buy

A Dutch firm is now taking orders for the first commercially available flying car that was revealed at Geneva Motor Show 2018.

The PAL-V will be delivered in 2019 as the model hasn’t received final safety certifications yet.

The firm claims the two-person vehicle has a top road speed of about 100 miles per hour (mph) while it can reach 112 mph in the air. With a maximum altitude of 11,000 feet, the air range is estimated to top out at around 350 miles.

Smart tires

The Italian company Pirelli introduced the incredible smart tire system that connects to the internet, so you can know tire pressure, temperature, and tread depth.

Information gathered from sensors in the tires is sent to the car and your phone app.

These tires are so smart that can even trigger a stability control system that can stop you from skidding.
