Is Future Planning from Science Fiction?

The BBC have announced that “Toyota ‘backs flying car project’ in Japan”. This seemed unbelievable to me and as the article states, it will turn science fiction into reality. From a planning perspective this project has a number of elements of interest. First the fact the idea was thought of. There must have been a lot of  planning and analysis to make the project a viable proposal. Then of course there must have been a lot of collaboration to gain agreement and funding to take the project forward and finally to make the flying car a reality will push the boundaries of technology and the associated planning that goes with that. I for one would be very interested to see what the final outcome of this project will be.
