If cities can manage to come up with effective and efficient traffic laws for the sky, the prospect of literally alleviating street congestion could be a reality. The Air-Elf would be the ideal vehicle to survive in such an environment.

Compactness is perhaps more important off of the ground, considering the extensive directional control of the flying concept car verses the limited bearing of road-bound automobiles. It needs to be small and nimble so that it's quick to take off and precise in landing.

The streamlined look of Yinze Hu's Air-Elf gives it a distinctly futuristic appearance. Two short wings make it agile, a hydrogen power engine gives it speed and an expansive sloping windshield reduces air resistance and increases the driver's visibility.
