Every other year, the Winter and Summer Olympics open up with the classic tradition of lighting the cauldrons. They’ve updated the process since 2010 with having multiple honorees lighting the flame, and another new wrinkle could be thrown into the mix. By the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, there could be a flying car used in the process.

Cartivator, a non-profit company that’s backed by Toyota, is developing the Skydrive car. This is a three-wheel minicar with a focus on an easy transition from driving on the ground and flying in the air. It’s expected to be the smallest flying car in the world, measuring at just 9.5 feet by 4.3 feet. They’re also envisioning the vehicle being used in ride-sharing programs.
