Tired Of Getting Stuck In Traffic? This Flying Car Might Be The Solution.

Meet Kyxz Mendiola, a resident of Quezon City, one of the most populated regions in the Philippines.

His city is one of 16 that have created a network of congestion in Metro Manila. But Mendiola is a genius. In fact, he’s the man responsible for Koncepto Millenya, a collective think tank of inventors and entrepreneurs who want to solve traffic issues using electric vehicle technology.

Mendiola spent years coming up an electric vehicle design that would help drivers avoid traffic jams.

While it’s still in its early stages, Mendiola’s fascinating invention might alter the future of daily commute forever. But the electric vehicle itself is such a nifty concept, that it also has the potential of being a lot of fun too.

The electric vehicle is nothing more than a giant drone that uses multi-copter technology to function.

Think of it as a drone vehicle, and it can literally get you out of a jam, and take you to work in half the time. If Mendiola’s invention becomes a hit, you’ll never have to worry about being late for work. Who knows? You might be able to squeeze an extra hour of sleep every morning.

The drone vehicle’s 154-pound framework was created using materials like carbon-fiber and aluminum.

An electronic flight controller was fitted into the vehicle, which is powered by batteries and driven by a propeller. But you don’t have to worry about the drone running out of juice in mid-air. Mendiola claims that he built a battery redundancy system to ensure that the vehicle remains in the air.

The drone vehicle isn’t the only concept that Mendiola had originally conceived to end traffic jams.

Mendiola had originally thought of coming up with a remote-controlled hoverboard. But then, he decided it would be cooler to create a single-seat drone vehicle. Of course, he would have preferred to design a flying sports car, but the materials he used made the vehicle impossible to fly.
