Dreamed up by Swiss engineers, the AirYacht is not only similar in name but also in function to the Lazzarini Studio’s Air Yacht – it seems that air transport is capturing the imagination of more and more designers who see it as one of the best forms of environmentally friendly travel.
The electric “jetpack”, dubbed SkyPack, is not yet in its final form, but its first prototype has been successfully tested. The Jet Suit from rocket backpack developer Gravity Industries is increasingly popping up to prove its effectiveness in special circumstances, such as during military operations or rescue work.
In the UK’s Lake District National Park, an average of 15-20 leg or hand-break incidents occur every week, and these will soon be handled by paramedics in Gravity Industries Jet Suits.
Because of the extreme conditions on the planet, only one probe has lasted more than an hour or two on Venus. A new concept suggests that the body structure of the stingray may hold the key to discovering the body.
Researchers have used a new manufacturing technology to produce low-voltage, soft actuators that can lift an insect-like drone into the air.
Horizon Aeronautics has started developing a prototype of an eVTOL hovercraft concept. To understand how the company’s propulsion system, called Blainjett, works, we first need to understand how the turntable and the cyclic control work as the helicopter’s upper rotor rotates.
