With time and advancements in technology, humans have come close to attaining the concept, and bringing it into reality.

Now, in Tokyo, a flying car took over the scenes in skies of the Japanese capital.

An exhibition of cutting-edge technology took place at SusHi Tech Tokyo 2024.

The vehicle flew over around 500 spectators, who were amazed by the tech of tomorrow. The 'car' named Hexa is developed by the American company LIFT Aircraft Inc. This is not to be confused with the Tata car, that goes by the same name.

Talking about the dynamics of the vehicle, it flies because of the 18 propellers, attached to it. The Hexa is a single-seat vehicle. It is 4.5 meters wide, 2.6 metres high. The Hexa is light as it weighs around 196 kilogrammes.
