    So the man who poured billions into the skycar is getting to see this automated technology surpass his own?

    I find this to be pretty interesting, considering that there was at one point an aircraft which stayed aloft for 6 months without coming into contact with the ground. Crazy thing was solar powered though. Wonder how the guidance systems will play out for this one.

    On a related note: Plans for a 5-year solar plane
