Honda to move into robots, rockets and aircraft

Honda Motor Co. Ltd. announced on Thursday its intention to broaden its technological horizons while "leveraging its core technologies."

The new concepts Honda intends to pursue consist of an "electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft" akin to a flying car, an avatar robot "with the goal to expand the range of human ability virtually without the constraints of time and place/space," as well as a two-part space technology program.

The company's statement says that it seeks to "create new value in the ultimate environment of outer space" by leveraging its unique core technologies to develop a circulative renewable energy system, apply Honda technologies to remote-controlled robots and develop a reusable small rocket for launching satellites into low-earth orbit.
