Boeing asked for quiet jet packs but got a bunch of air motorcycles

Each winner gets $20,000 to help build its design before a second phase of the competition, which is open even to those who didn’t win the first round, and then four finalists will be granted an additional $50,000 each. GoFly plans to issue invitations next March to an actual fly-off with a $1-million top prize, as well as separate prizes for the quietest and most compact designs. It’s anyone’s guess when these flying machines will be produced.
