2-in-1 flying mouse, wiimote

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2009

2-in-1 flying mouse, wiimoteThis is the 2-in-1 mouse BTLS90 by Filco. It can’t decide what it wants to be. It features a gyro sensor so you can use it either on a desk or in the air like Wiimote. It doesn’t actually fly, unless you waving it around counts as flight. The mouse features an 800dpi resolution along with a USB-rechargeable 550mAh internal battery.

It isn’t much of a looker is it? I mean, it’s like a blue/black wiimote just swallowed a TV remote snake style and now it’s in for a long digestive process. It has a rather large butt too. The design team must have struggled for hours to figure out a way to make consumers stay away at all costs.

High Road Aerocar cruises at 180 MPH

Posted in Aircraft by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2009

High Road Aerocar cruises at 180 MPHLeigh Aerosystems’ latest concept is the “High Road.” A new kind of flying car. The High Road has already completed initial wind tunnel tests at the San Diego Air and Space Museum’s 12-foot tunnel with great success, which led to more detailed mechanical and structural design.

Some of the operational and performance goals for this aerocar include a 180 mph cruise speed at 15,000 ft., 20,000 ft ceiling and a 500-mile range. Sure, it will cost a fortune when it sees the light of day, but the rest of those poor suckers will be on the ground and you’ll be flipping them the bird while tossing empty red bull cans on skyscraper roofs.

The Hotelicopter: World’s first flying hotel

Posted in Aircraft by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

The Hotelicopter: World's First Flying HotelSince 2004, the Hotelicopter project has been underway. So for 5 years they’ve been working on modifying a Soviet-made Mil V-12 into the “world’s biggest helicopter” and at the same time, the “world’s first flying hotel. It’s an amazing piece of work, like a double-decker bus for the skies.

It’s the ultimate in luxury air travel, with private entertainment systems and room service. Plus you get extras like spa treatments, yoga classes, gaming and a tea garden. To give you some idea of it’s size, check out the specs below.

Audi Shark flying car concept

Audi Shark flying car conceptIs it a shark? A submarine? A flying car? All of the above. And it’s the most badass flying car/shark/submarine I’ve ever seen. Kazim Doku’s Shark concept is how he envisions the future of Audi’s design: as a flying car. Design inspirations came from motorcycles and airplanes, and obviously underwater vessels.

Even the interior gets some sporty seats with the cockpit’s sculpture, so you can sit comfortably while flying to work and playing with some buttons etc. Check out a video below. Who needs roads when you can fly in this kind of style?

Flying Duck Hunter robot looks familiar

Flying Duck Hunter robot looks familiarThis game looks familiar. Except now you can really score a kill. Well, not really. But it’s as close as some of you will ever get to killing a flying duck. Available this spring, the Duck Hunter is like a WowWee Dragonfly mashed up with the classic Duck Hunt lightgun shooting game.

The duck launches from your IR blaster, charging in just 10 seconds from a few AA batteries in the pistol. When the robotic duck takes flight autonomously, just shoot the bird three times. Robot duck death will follow.

Departure 2093: The future of flight

Posted in Aircraft by Conner Flynn on November 20th, 2008

Departure 2093: The future of flightWhat might the future of flight look like? The folks at Finnair have a pretty good idea. They have five future aircraft concepts for the year 2093. As you might expect, all the aircrafts are eco-friendly and materials used in the making are 100 percent recyclable. I have to say they look awesome.

How about a zero-emission supersonic aircraft, designed for long-hauls? AV windows that offer zoomable views of the sky or the earth? How about a charter aircraft with turning engines in front that can glide and take-off vertically? Some even feature hologram theaters, restaurants, and bars, shops, a beauty parlor, a first-aid station, and gymnasiums. The future of flight is looking pretty awesome. I’d be willing to bet that most of their ideas will be realized by 2093.

The incredible flying motorcycle

The incredible flying motorcycle
Generally things with wheels don’t leave the ground. Of course, there were the flying motorcycles of Galactica 1980, but that was fiction. Very bad fiction.

Here’s a single seat motorbike/tricycle that lets you ride on the open road and when traffic gets too congested, you can just take to the skies and arrive at work in style. It uses of propeller blades like a helicopter and can reach flying speeds of 160 km/h and land speeds of 90 km/h. The only problem is that we are going to have to rethink garage design and put gas stations on rooftops.
