This week tech & car company Pal-V made a pretty big splash at the Geneva auto show by unveiling its newest flying car. Louis Scialabba, Director of Service Provider Security at Radware joins Cheddar to discuss if this technology could actually be a reality.

Scialabba believes flying cars will retail to a niche group but most likely won't go mainstream, at least for a while. He talks about what will need to go into driving one of these cars and it doesn't seem easy. You'd probably still need a runway and if so, it will be hard to just fly your car to the grocery store.

However, he says that we can't just focus on the fun aspects of connected cars. We need to worry about the cybersecurity risks they pose. Cars can share information with other cars and we need to be mindful of the technology that goes into that and protect our data.
