The Pop.Up concept was unveiled during the Geneva International Motor Show this March 2017, and many car aficionados were totally amazed with the announcement. The flying car concept is definitely fitting for the saddening issue of worldwide traffic as it features the usage of urban transportation space. It consists of three segments: an eight-rotor aerial module, a battery vehicle, and a carbon-fiber capsule. The capsule acts as the container of the passengers or goods, which can also be disconnected from the car. With the amazing three segments in one setting, this inventions looks like a capsule propelled by a drone.

However, when there is traffic congestion, the significant use of the rotors comes to life. The capsule is detached from car, and consequently lifted using the aerial module with eight rotors. Once you’re safely brought to your destination, the flying vehicle goes back to its respective charging points like a bus terminal, then waits for its next passenger.
The company aims to offer this futuristic flying vehicle in significant cities in the world such as New York, Beijing, Paris, and London, as well as Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyberadad. Airbus, the company behind this rather exceptional development, is well-known in the aircraft business, and has played a major role in some of the world’s best aircraft's. The company is also associated with top corporations in the automobile industry. This Pop.Up concept may sound pretty impossible, but the viability of this idea remains to be a very fascinating way to solve the traffic congestion. With this impressive invention, you’ll soon be enjoying a daily ride from above, while enjoying the breathtaking views. And of course, you don’t have to worry about wasting your precious time on the roads because you will reach your destination with just a couple of minutes. How cool is that?
