If your commute on the 400 is driving you crazy, help is on the way.

Lilium Aviation announced Thursday (April 20/17) the first ever vertical takeoff and landing of a personal-use electric vehicle. Also known as a flying car.

The idea is that the aircraft has the benefit of a helicopter in not needing a long runway, but is still capable of reaching the top speeds of a jet. Lilium says its personal jets will be available to fly out of backyard as soon as 2018.
