2023: A year of innovation and disruption in tech

Technology is evolving at an unprecedented pace in our world.

It’s hard not to be wowed by the incredible innovations that human creativity and ingenuity have produced this past year.

From conversational AI to robots, from flying sports cars to electric flying craft, we have seen some of the most remarkable breakthroughs in history.

As 2023 comes to a close, let’s review some of the most fascinating and influential technology that made this year unforgettable…

Air taxis, flying sports cars and boats that glide above water: The changing technologies of transportation

There were also some fantastic innovations in transportation. We saw the world’s first fully autonomous passenger-carrying air taxi receive airworthiness certification. A flying sports car called Switchblade takes its maiden flight and the Candela P-12, an electric boat, flies above the water.

Flying Sports Cars

Flying sports cars are the new thrill of personal transportation. They are sleek, powerful and versatile. They can travel on the road like a normal car or fly like a plane. They can switch between modes in seconds, using retractable wings and propellers.

Flying Switchblade sports car

One of the most innovative examples of flying sports cars is aircraft maker Samson Sky’s invention of the world’s first flying car, Switchblade. It can transform from a three-wheeled street-legal roadster to a two-seat aircraft in minutes. It has a retractable wing and tail that fold into the body when driving on the road. It can seat two people and has a luggage compartment that can fit two golf bags and/or two overnight bags. Recently, Switchblade completed its first flight in Moses Lake, Washington, at the Grant Country International Airport.

Kurt’s key takeaways

As we end 2023, technology is evolving more rapidly and with more profound effects than ever before. We have seen how artificial intelligence, robots, flying sportscars, taxis and boats are reshaping our reality and creating new possibilities, challenges and opportunities. As we look ahead to the future, we may wonder what else is possible. What tech will we be looking back on next year at this time?
