City experts like Joe Dignan think the sky car trial is a clever move, insomuch as "it will get the market in the mood for autonomous vehicles". He added, the system "is cheaper than building out a train line and uses part of the urban landscape, 20ft above ground, that isn't currently used".
The real questions, though, are can they build enough track, and, even if they make the cars bigger, will they be large enough to really offset traffic congestion? Oh yea, and if you thought scoring a cab on New Year's Eve was a challenge, imagine everyone trying to hail a sky car at the same time. Good luck with all that.
Who knows. Either way, you've got to admit that they look pretty damn slick.
