Engineers tested a prototype of a flying car this weekend in Japan.
The propeller-driven test model is being developed by the company Cartivator and is supported by an investment from Toyota of nearly $400,000.
During the tests, the prototype took off several times, hovering at eye level for a few seconds before setting back down.
The project leader says he was inspired by the flying DeLorean in the Back to the Future franchise.
