The field of transport is witnessing technological advancements at a very fast pace. After electric two and four wheelers, the developments and advancements are coming almost daily. The next frontier to be conquered therefore was but obvious – the aerial mode of transport and automobile designers have once again proved that they won’t lag behind for this mode of transport either. After Burt Rutan made popular the BiPod – a bimodal vehicle which could run both on the land and fly in air – engineers at Germany’s Research Airport at Braunschweig have come up with their own version of a bimodal vehicle and which they have christened Carplane.
Who doesn’t like to fly in style! Designer Eric Strebel has come up with Albus Tell, which was designed for the contest named Terra Prix 2085 race around the world. The name, Albus Tell has a hidden meaning behind it and was chosen purposely. It comes from two words, Alps (white in Latin) and Tell from William Tell who was a legendary folk hero.
For the ultra-rich, available hobbies are as limitless as their bank accounts. Designer Timon Sager envisions the future elite class shedding their riding boots and leaving the exotic car garaged for something even more exhilarating: a purely recreational private jet. The AvA 02 Serafim has a fighter jet aesthetic with a more customized look. Shown here in red, it’s a natural choice for adrenaline junkies.
The new British missile called “Perseus”, named after the Greek mythological figure, will be the most potent missile in its class when it finally rolls out in 2030. Cruising at thrice the speed of sound or 2000 miles per hour, it will be almost three times faster than the existing weapons.
Whenever we think of space endeavors, organizations such as NASA, European Space Agency or even ISRO crop up in our heads. But a private British aerospace company – Reaction Engines Limited (REL) is all set to rather develop a more inclusive system of space traveling, with their Skylon spaceplane concept.
