Toyota files ‘aerocar’ patent for stackable wings
The Japanese car manufacturer Toyota filed for a patent for a car design that can fly thanks to four stackable wings built into the roof which can be deployed individually. The weird patent was finally recognized a few days ago.
On the left side of the image below is a sequence of drawings showing the wings of the vehicle – that resembles a Prius – which can change shape and be deployed separately. On the right, we see the various ways the wings can be set up.
“Flying has always been a dream central to the history of humanity,” reads the patent.
