(Tokyo) -- Testing is underway on a new propeller-driven prototype of a "flying car."
The test model is being developed by the Japanese company Cartivator in partnership with Toyota.
The test model took off several times, hovering at eye level for a few seconds before making a hard landing.
Basketballs attached to the bottom served as cushioning.
The project leader said he took inspiration from the DeLorean flying car in "Back to the Future."
