Air Drive Takes Flying Cars Back to the Retro Future
In his new series Air Drive, photographer Renaud Marion reimagines the future of flying cars. We stumbled upon the futuristic images on Renaud's Tumblr and were immediately taken with the gauzy, retro-modern photos.
We asked what inspired the Paris-based artist to produce the ongoing series, and he cited sci-fi film, as well as French comic artist Jean Giraud (aka Moebius), who was known for his surreal, fantastical drawings. "I wished to create the flying cars which I imagined when I was a child," said Renaud.
Our flying-car fantasies are certainly fulfilled. Hovercraft technology isn't too far off these days, and here's hoping that future automakers look to Renaud's images for inspiration.
