While man has always sought to fly, in the post-World War 2 time period, there was a growing interest in the idea of “flying cars”, that is personal flying devices that could pull into a garage and then whisk their inhabitants off to a location. At the time, it seemed like the stars had aligned for just such a reality. Thru the war, 2 inventions were refined that seemed to make this possible: the gas turbine and the helicopter. In fact, German engineers had developed the intermesh helicopter, a type that auto hovers. Many of those engineers and scientists found their way to the United States via Operation Paperclip.
On paper, a flying car sounds great. Faster than ground transportation and able to go point-to-point versus following roads. However, in practice, the idea of a flying car is a nightmare. Besides the complexities of actually flying an aircraft, there is the matter of preventing all these flying cars from running into one another. Then there is the fact that conditions in air are always changing as the atmosphere takes on many properties of a fluid in a vessel, with competing air currents and changes in air flow. From that time till today, history is littered with failed flying car ideas, some famous, some not so famous. In the end, the idea of the flying car remains (and likely will always remain) an idea.
When it comes to user management techniques, there is one that sounds like a great idea on paper, but a nightmare in actual usage: Alternating Use. This leads to the following questions:
Let’s see how the idea is not matched by the reality.
