Hyundai‘s annual internal contest, designed to expand and showcase its R&D staff’s creativity, produces a number of innovative concepts. The IDEA Festival displays the prototypes created by engineers at the company’s R&D center in Korea.

Last time, some unique concepts for single-person future mobility in congested cities were revealed and demonstrated. One idea that made it through to the festival was a multi-rotor flying car.

The concept vehicle, which is powered by four electric motors and propellers, can hover above the ground to keep the driver above any congestion on the roads. The innovative flying car was unveiled being remotely controlled by a man wearing a red cape.

Unfortunately, Hyundai hasn’t yet revealed any plans to move into production with the futuristic concept. You can see it in action in the video below, along with other prototypes at last year’s IDEA Festival:
