Note From the Editor
For readers who might have just wrapped up the July 4th holiday or might be contemplating a weekend escape, how many of you fantasized about avoiding congested roadways in your flying car? Everyone will be using them within a decade, right? Well, wrong. Our senior writer Andrew Sheivachman took a hard look at flying cars, and concluded they likely will be akin to private jets or helicopters. Namely, niche services for the moneyed set.
On the other end of the economic spectrum is Pod Hotels. Hospitality editor Deanna Ting reports that the brand, which is in expansion mode, is addressing the needs of hotel developers and guests who might be looking for cost-conscious but still design-focused stays. They definitely won’t be arriving for their Pod Hotels stays in a flying car.
