NFT Inc. reimagines urban and rural living with flying car ASKA

A number of startups have promised to bring a drive-and-fly vehicle to market over the past few years, but none have yet managed to follow through. NFT Inc. is betting it will succeed where its rivals have failed, with preorders opening Thursday for ASKA, company’s first electric flying car. The SUV-sized ASKA ( which means ‘flying bird’ in Japanese) may be better described as a plane that drives, rather than a car that flies. Even when its six rotors are folded closed, the vehicle has the unmis...

Weekend reading: Doomed and boomed

Tech stocks rallied first, which was blamed on 20-something traders and lockdown mania. Later in the year, small cap stocks joined the party. Just more retail madness, we were assured. Finally, cyclical and value stocks and the share prices of companies smashed-up by the pandemic began to soar. The Fed had euthanized ...

This NFT is bananas Well, a banana. The duct tape has been replaced with a sharpie, but the latest fruit-forward critique of art-as-investment comes from Nathan Phillips, co-founder of creative agency Technology, Humans and Taste. He’s packaged his “creative identity” into a single image of a banana with an identity crisis. Scrawling the word “ORANGE” across it in permanent marker makes it art, he says. And if someone buys the NFT he created of it, that will officially make him an artist,...
