Japanese electronics maker NEC Corp. has shown a “flying car,” a large drone-like machine with four propellers that hovered steadily for about a minute.

The test flight Monday reaching 3 meters (10 feet) high was held in a gigantic cage, as a safety precaution, at an NEC facility in a Tokyo suburb.
The Japanese government is behind flying cars with the goal of having people zipping around in them by the 2030s.
