Wow. I want one. Even more than a laser Hummer (believe it). The first flight of the vertical takeoff version of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) was today (but it took-off normally, horizontally. How boring.) They will go through flight tests until early next year when they will do the vertical hover takeoff and landing. Dude. More here from Popular Mechanics. And here is a video of their lift-fan test from last month.
