Scientists finally invent flying pods off the future
Flying space pods became a step closer to reality after Google's top secret technology division 'Project X' revealed tantalising details regarding the futuristic silver transportation devices off the future, yesterday.
Egg-shaped pods have long been the staple of scientific conjecture, with boffins often promising that in as early as 1999 we could all be ‘flying around in pods’. Now - thanks to breakthroughs made by a group of hardcore middle-aged geeks those dreams could now become a reality.
One of the scientists behind the research - codenamed "Secret Hovering Pod Project" - told us why he felt compelled to forge ahead with this amazing new technology.
"Let's face it everyone loves a pod, possibly even more so than chimps – and that’s even if they are just pretending to love the chimp so they can fit in with the crowd."
"For example that Siri on the iPhone 4S is very future, like something off Star Trek only much better, and we feel flying pods are lagging behind in being invented. And as our ‘hoverboard off Back To The Future 2' project has so far failed to yield any notable fruit, we are getting pretty frustrated and need to find a much easier future technology to work on."
The twitchy geek added, "Getting back to this hoverboard thing, honestly, how hard can it be? It looked so simple in that film! All we could cobble together in five years of painstaking research and billion of dollars in R&D is a lawnmower engine bolted on to a massive plank of plywood, with an inner tube draped around it. I mean these pods can fly to the moon with a thimble full of anti-matter fuel, and in a few seconds teleport you to Alpha Centauri and back, but we still can't make a frikkin’ hoverboard that doesn't make you look like a sad old tit while riding it.”
