Even if I could afford it, I wouldn't buy it unless I could actually fly it somewhere.

It is suitable for test and evaluation only and is not certified for use by the Federal Aviation Authority nor as a licensed road vehicle.
If you can't fly it what are you going to do with it other than lend it to an aeronautical museum? And even if the FAA would allow it, the only test flights were unmanned and hovering; so while it can theoretically make the transition from hover to cruise, I would want some assurance that the car could safely make the trasition in case the FAA eventually starts certifying flying cars.

I'd settle for a cellphone watch.

I want one of those multi-function pens that also turns into an explosive device, a phone, and actually writes well. I can never find one with ALL of those qualities. Either the explosive doesn't explode, the phone doesn't phone, or the pen doesn't write. And shaking an explosive pen is just a bad idea. *sigh*
