Month: March 2009
When I first read the news about the latest flying car developments in February 2009, I was definitely excited. I love driving. I love flying (not that I fly a plane though). So what better way to combine both than to have a flying car!
On March 5th, 2009 the Terrafugia Transition achieved first flight at Plattsburgh International Airport off New York’s I-87, just one hour south of Montreal, Quebec.
Now, you can actually buy your very own Terrafugia Transition Roadable Aircraft, which could go into production next year (2010). The anticipated purchase price is US$194,000 with a US$10,000 airframe refundable deposit. I surely don’t have that money to spend, but just the idea that it is possible to get one soon, makes me happy about it.
A Light Sport Aircraft pilot license will be needed to drive/fly this dual-purpose vehicle. You can become a Sport Pilot in as little as 20 hours of flight time in their specific training course.
Who knows? Maybe someday I will buy one myself.
More information about the vehicle here.
Hello world! This is Anna Isabel Saldivar and this is my first post for this blog.
I’ve actually been writing for quite awhile. I have another blog, but it mostly contained stuff about my personal life. So, I decided to create a new one where I can talk more about my passion for technology, and less about random stuff in my life. In other words, this will be my so-called “professional” blog. But of course, it wouldn’t hurt to include some random interesting stuff from my life once in awhile.
When I was just a young kid, I already loved writing. I even remember that there was this one time that I entered a short story contest sponsored by a major national newspaper. I think what I wrote was a fictional story about a girl and a flying unicorn. (Haha! Isn’t that cute?) I didn’t win though, but it was a very memorable experience for me. Writing will always be a part of me.
Topics that I have in mind right now which I will definitely be blogging about will include social media, the web, gadgets, hardware, and just about anything else that involves technology.
Why Tech-Life in Pink? Well firstly, my favourite colour is pink. Pink also represents being a lady. I am a lady and I will be talking mostly about technology and how it affects me and my life, so that is how I came up with that.
Well, that’s it for now. Soon you’ll get to know more about me and my tech-life in pink!
