Ever thought about your own personal hovercraft? Teleporter perhaps?
Well you can always count on the Germans to bring your dreams to life. The crack team at E-volo have built a kind of aircraft that allows a user to vertically take off and land, powered by around 16 propellers. Each propeller is powered individually, and the device can stay in flight for about 20 minutes. While the initial model wasn’t designed to have a pilot, it was later added to provide a more realistic steering experience.
Check out the video below for a short demo of how the aircraft works – would you feel comfortable sitting in something like that?
