Fortunately concept car designers are hot on the trail of finding us a solution... Conceptually that is :)
The Audi Shark is a futuristic flying concept vehicle with a streamlined design inspired by motorcycles and airplanes. It was designed by Kazim Doku and won the Desire Competition by Domus Academy.
So here’s what i was thinking: Electrohydrodynamics !!!
Electrohyrodynamics is basically converting electrical energy to kinetic energy; this is done without requiring any moving parts. How you may ask, well an electric field ionizes the particles within a medium (air in our case) these ionized particles then travel/move towards an oppositely charged electrode to become neutral thus essentially causing air flow and therefore propulsion... just add electricity ?
