This is the first chapter of the futuristic novel entitled " Da Vinci Ideas "...   It was a sunny morning in mid September 2117 when Johnny Edwards, a litigation lawyer from Boston, Massachusetts drove his way to a client's house. His vehicle was a simple 2-seat space car that floats in the air effortlessly. It does not need fossil fuel nor electricity. Thus, it was environment-friendly and needs no charging.
