    The Event Is Coming Soon - The World’s First Hoverbike is Ready to Ride

    byPaul Seaburn


    Start saving your bitcoins (or whatever it is you do to accumulate a sizeable pile of them). If your bucket list includes being the first on your block to own an operational and really cool hoverbike, your wait is over. The Russian startup company Hoversurf announced it has achieved its goal of …
    Making flying as easy as riding a bike.
    OK, a really dangerous bike, but that’s why you want one, right? The Scorpion-3 was unveiled this week by Hoversurf in a warehouse at its headquarters in San Francisco. The company – whose motto is “Aim high” (with an implied “Kids, don’t try this at home”) – began as a manufacturer of heavy-lift cargo drones with carrying capacities ranging from 90 to 2,500 kg. (198 to 5511 lbs.). That should be good news for the ‘bigger biker’, right?

    Not quite. While based on the same platform as the cargo drones, the Scorpion-3 has a weight limit of 266 pounds of “amateur and professional navigators.” That’s a code phrase for ‘extreme sports enthusiasts’ and other adrenaline addicts who can ride a fast bike AND deal with it being 33 feet (10 meters) off the ground – the current restricted altitude limit.


    Well, “fast” is relative – the top speed of the Scorpion-3 is currently restricted to 33 mph (53 kmph) but that undoubtedly seems a lot faster when flying. Hoversurf says its engineers used a standard motorbike design to make it easy for riders with cycle experience to handle the Scorpion-3. For lift and thrust, an electric motor powers the quadcopter propellers taken from the drone platform and can reportedly keep the Scorpion-3 aloft for 27 minutes – more than enough time to generate enough excitement to require a change of pants.

    This Gatorade Ad Made a Human Using Water and Photos Instead of CGI

    This incredibly creative ad from Gatorade uses a “liquid printer” and precision-timed strobe photography to create a stop-motion athlete from drops of water. What’s more, it was created entirely in-camera, according to the company.

    The video starts off with a human figure being pumped out of a water printer. Okay, that’s pretty cool, but water printers are nothing new. But then the figure jogs over to a box and starts doing box jumps, with water splashing as its feet hit the box.

    The figure stands and starts kicking a punching bag, which recoils with each strike. The ad would be pretty impressive on its own, but Gatorade says that the entire thing was created in-camera.

    The water printer itself comprises over 20,000 parts, and took over 5,000 man hours to construct. The printer they built had 2,048 individual nozzles, which turned on and off within 2 milliseconds. The strobes were then set to freeze the droplets mid-air. James Medcraft, the project’s director of photography explains:

    We’re using the flash to freeze the water droplets at a very precise moment in space, and we’re having to do that with millimetre and microsecond accuracy.

    To create the motion, the nozzles were driven by motion capture data of a real athlete who ran, jumped, and kicked while wearing sensors. The water rig would then drop a frame-by-frame animation, which was frozen with each flash.

    The result is the very impressive ad, that you can watch in full at the top. The one thing we can’t figure out – how did they create the punching bag scene without CGI?

    Gatorade has shared a behind the scenes video, which you can watch below. How do you think they did it?

    Flying Cars Could Hit the Skies as Soon as 2018

     
    IN BRIEF
    The PAL-V will be the first flying car to hit the consumer market, with aims to reach customers by 2018. In competition with it are AeroMobil are Terrfugia, both of which are launching futuristic aero-vehicles.

    FLYING CARS BY 2018

    The Personal Air Land Vehicle (PAL-V) Liberty is looking likely to become the first flying car intended for general adoption and real world application — and it could be available soon. While the first model was developed in 2012, the company is aiming to deliver its first car to the first customer by the end of 2018. They hope to produce 50 to 100 models in 2019, and a few hundred by 2020.

    The planned price is €299,000 EUR ($333, 340 USD) for the sport version and €499,000 EUR ($556, 310 USD) for the first edition. Of course, cost isn’t the only consideration: customers will need to acquire both a flying and driving license before using the vehicle, and each car will need to undergo 150 hours of flight testing before being approved.

    The PAL-V is one of many flying cars in development at the moment. Other bids include Toyota’s plan to bring a flying car to the 2020 Toyko Olympics — although the end goal for this model would be carrying the Olympic torch, rather than being destined for mass production.

    At the moment, the PAL-V’s main market competition are companies like AeroMobil, and another called Terrfugia. Both use plane-like propulsion systems, as opposed to the Pal-V’s gyrocopter technology, to take off. Aerombil has already started accepting pre-orders for 2020, while Terrafugia is expected to deliver their first Transition in 2019.

    THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORT?

    It may well be that flying cars as the future of transport. They would provide a way to decrease traffic congestion, cut out airport flight times, provide alternatives for people living a long way from work, and give a means of transport to countries that lack the infrastructure for consistent large scale flights.

    However, not everyone agrees with that assessment: Elon Musk isn’t so sure flying cars are the future of transport, as he told Bloomberg’s Max Chafkin: “Obviously, I like flying things, but it’s difficult to imagine the flying car becoming a scalable solution.”

    Among the main criticisms of the technology are the fact that it would need to produce a lot of downforce to stay in the sky — which produces a lot of noise and wind — and that they may well be more dangerous than road cars: should they be involved in an accident, passengers and debris could quite literally end up falling from the sky. The PAL-V has handled the the first issue with its gyrocopte, which keeps speed in check and is a key safety feature.

    While a future with flying cars is an exciting one to behold, there are some major obstacles the industry needs to overcome first. And while it’s certainly encouraging that there’s interest, we shouldn’t take the acceptance of pre-orders as being interchangeable with government policy or even approval.

    OUR NEXT EVOLUTIONAL STAGE WILL BE THE CYBORG

    Cyborgs – hybrid creatures forged from human beings and machines – have gradually been making the transition from science fiction staple into reality in the past decades.

    Primarily, the use of robotic technology in human beings is used as a medical tool in the present day but as the technology improves it may be employed for a whole host of different reasons. This has led leading philosophers to suggest that the time has come to discuss the ethical implications of creating cyborg humans in the near future.  

    Most people do not tend to think of prosthetic limbs as the type of robotics which lead to the creation of cyborg humans. However, the latest technology in this field is far more advanced than the majority of people suspect. Carbon fiber and titanium prosthetic limbs are used as a matter of routine in the modern age and the vast majority of false limbs which are fitted today are fully functional.

    RELATED ARTICLES

    Prosthetic limbs have become so adept and dexterous recently that experts are even beginning to discuss whether they are more effective than organic limbs. Researchers have also created phenomenal robotic hands which can be triggered by the brain of the patients. Some of the most recent robotic hands produced even have a sense of touch.

    Recently, robotic engineers have progressed beyond artificial limbs and have begun to dabble with the idea of implanting human beings with microchips. In recent months, there has been news that a company in Sweden has begun to implant its employees with microchips so that they can perform tasks such as opening doors with the wave of a hand. Even more ambitiously, the Tesla CEO Elon Musk is in the process of developing a so-called neural lace which will eventually be capable of connecting the human mind to electronic devices such as computers and smartphones.

    Humanity is becoming more and more ambitious with its plans to push the boundaries of science and technology, particularly regarding space exploration. For many individuals, developing effective cyborg technology could be an essential step towards achieving these dreams. However, others believe that before cyborg technology goes too far that it is incredibly important to discuss the moral and legal questions posed by this next stage of human history.

    Ethical philosophers are already beginning to question various aspects of life with cyborg human beings such as establishing safeguards to ensure that human beings cannot be hacked. There are also concerns that there could be troubling implications for the world’s military forces who might use the new developments in cyborg technology to create humans with exoskeletons. 

    It is very important to consider these questions now to make sure that this next stage in human development is a success and not a complete disaster

    IN BRIEF
    Open Bionics have produced a 3D printed bionic hand that could benefit thousands with its modifiability, low turnaround time, and cost-effectiveness. If the clinical trial proves that the hand is safe and effective, it could radically change prosthetic care.

    A new, affordable, 3D printed bionic hand that could transform the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) has begun its first clinical trial in England. BBC’s coverage focuses on a girl called Tilly Lockey who is one of the 10 children taking part in the trial.

    The arm is built by Open Bionics, based near Bristol, with the goal to create “low-cost bionic hands” to help the estimated two million hand amputees worldwide. Their hands can be created in just over 42 hours and cost around £3,000 ($3,360).

    The hands can also be modified to the wearer’s preference. Most endearingly, the company has shown child-specific styles, which them look like Star Wars or Iron Man hands. As Tilly says in the video, when people see it “They’re like ‘oh my gosh that’s a cool hand!'”

    These cheap, functional, and quick-to-produce bionic arms have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of those missing arms in Britain. If the clinical trial is successful, they will be rolled out as part of the free NHS service, improving thousands of lives.

    The future of bionics looks bright as we see more limb replacements that are miles ahead of the crude hooks of the past. At the most advanced end of the spectrum, there are even arms that can translate thoughts into prosthetic movements, and prosthetics that come equipped with a full technological arsenal — including a drone, interactive screen, and USB port.

    Researchers Have Created an AI That Could Read and React to Emotions

     
    IN BRIEF
    University of Cambridge researchers have developed an AI algorithm that can assess how much pain a sheep is in by reading its facial expressions. This system can facilitate the early detection of painful conditions in livestock, and eventually, it could be used as the basis for AIs that read emotions on human faces.

    READING SHEEP

    One of today’s more popular artificially intelligent (AI) androids comes from the TV series “MARVEL’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Those of you who followed the latest season’s story — no spoilers here! — probably love or hate ADA by now. One of the most interesting things about this fictional AI character is that it can read people’s emotions. Thanks to researchers from the University of Cambridge, this AI ability might soon make the jump from sci-fi to reality.

    The first step in creating such a system is training an algorithm on simpler facial expressions and just one specific emotion or feeling. To that end, the Cambridge team focused on using a machine learning algorithm to figure out if a sheep is in pain, and this week, they presented their research at the IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition in Washington, D.C.

    The system they developed, the Sheep Pain Facial Expression Scale (SPFES), was trained using a dataset of 500 sheep photographs to learn how to identify five distinct features of a sheep’s face when the animal is in pain. The algorithm then ranks the features on a scale of 1 to 10 to determine the severity of the pain. Early tests showed that the SPFES could estimate pain levels with an 80 percent accuracy.

    HUMANE AND HUMAN

    SPFES was a departure for Peter Robinson, the Cambridge professor leading the research, as he typically focuses on systems designed to read human facial expressions. “There’s been much more study over the years with people,” Robinson explained in a press release.“But a lot of the earlier work on the faces of animals was actually done by Darwin, who argued that all humans and many animals show emotion through remarkably similar behaviors, so we thought there would likely be crossover between animals and our work in human faces.”

    As co-author Marwa Mahmoud explained, “The interesting part is that you can see a clear analogy between these actions in the sheep’s faces and similar facial actions in humans when they are in pain – there is a similarity in terms of the muscles in their faces and in our faces.”

    Next, the team hopes to teach SPFES how to read sheep facial expressions from moving images, as well as train the system to work when a sheep isn’t looking directly at a camera. Even as is, though, the algorithm could improve the quality of life of livestock like sheep by facilitating the early detection of painful conditions that require quick treatment, adding it to the growing list of practical and humane applications for AI.

    Additional developments could lead to systems that are able to accurately recognize and react to human emotions, further blurring the line between natural and artificial intelligences.

    A Robot Can Print This $32,000 House in as Little as 8 Hours

     
    PassivDom
    IN BRIEF
    PassivDom uses a 3D printing robot that can print the walls, roof, and floor of a 380-square-foot model home in about eight hours. When complete, the homes are autonomous and mobile, meaning they don't need to connect to external electrical and plumbing systems.

    Building a house by hand can be both time-consuming and expensive. Numerous homebuilders have chosen to automate part of the construction (i.e., by printing the home’s parts) instead.

    A new Ukrainian homebuilding startup called PassivDom uses a 3D printing robot that can print parts for tiny houses. The machine can print the walls, roof, and floor of PassivDom’s 380-square-foot model in about eight hours. The windows, doors, plumbing, and electrical systems are then added by a human worker.

    When complete, the homes are autonomous and mobile, meaning they don’t need to connect to external electrical and plumbing systems. Solar energy is stored in a battery connected to the houses, and water is collected and filtered from humidity in the air (or you can pour water into the system yourself). The houses also feature an independent sewage system.

    PassivDom’s homes, which start at $31,900, are now available for preorder online in Ukraine and the US, and the first ones will be delivered later this year.

    Check out the homes below.

    PassivDom’s smallest model measures 380 square feet and costs $31,900, designer Maria Sorokina tells Business Insider.

    Passivdom

    Here’s what the house looks like when you walk in the front door. It’s a large open space with a small kitchen and floor-to-ceiling windows.

    Passivdom

    This model doesn’t include a separate bedroom, which means residents need a sleeper sofa. A small bathroom is located near the kitchen.

    Passivdom

    PassivDom offers three models of homes and can make custom models as well. The premium models come with furniture, but the one pictured below comes unfurnished.

    The homes also offer the possibility of living off the grid.

    “We should have opportunities to live in nature away from civilization, but have comfortable conditions of a traditional house,” Sorokina says. “This technology can allow us to live in the woods, on mountains, or on the shore — far away from people and infrastructure.”

    Passivdom

    To make a PassivDom home, the team maps out the plan for the 3D printer in its factories in Ukraine and California. Layer by layer, the seven-axel robot prints the roof, floor, and 20-centimeter-thick walls, which are made of carbon fibers, polyurethane, resins, basalt fibers, and fiberglass.

    Passivdom

    Doors, windows, appliances, an alarm system, solar panels, and the septic, electrical, healing, cooling systems are then added.

    Depending on the model, the whole process can take under 24 hours. The design and production of larger houses with more specifications and finishes, like the one below, can take up to a month. If a house is premade, it can be shipped the next day.

    Passivdom

    The startup believes 3D printing is a cheaper, more efficient way to build homes that it can sell at a (relatively) affordable price. “Over 100 million people do not have a roof over their heads,” Sorokina says. “It is necessary to build more affordable houses.”

    Passivdom

    PassivDom is not the only company using 3D printing to build homes. The San Francisco-based housing startup Apis CorDus Architects in Amsterdam, as well as Branch Technology from Chattanooga, Tennessee, say they can construct homes in mere days or weeks.

    There’s a New Mega-Contender in the Upcoming Giant Robot Battle

     
    IN BRIEF
    • A team out of Beijing, China has developed and built another giant robot that it wants to enter in the upcoming robot battle set for August.
    • The Monkey King can fight on all fours or standing on two legs while holding a staff.

    The upcoming MegaBots battle was just delivered a surprise twist with another giant bot looking to square up in the ring. What was originally a two titan grudge match for the ages now has the potential of becoming a three-way death match rife with black blood and twisted metal.

    This new contender hails from Beijing’s Greatmetal and goes by the name of Monkey King. This behemoth sets itself apart from the competition with its ability to fight both on all fours and bipedally. Even more, it can wield a staff while fighting on its hind legs.

    The Monkey King could go up against the Mk. III from the U.S. or Japan’s KURATAS. The original plan was for the American and Japanese bots to square off sometime in August. And, while a three-way melee sounds incredible, it might be more likely that the champion from the planned fight in August would earn the right to go toe-to-toe with royalty in a more tournament-style match.

    This could be the start of a brand new sports league combining the brains of robotics with all the muscle of pro-sports. Stay tuned for updates on the exact date and time of the first brawl as well as any more hints as to whether or not the Monkey King will be joining the fray.

    Spherical Drone Display Looks Like 360-Degree Flying Screen

    Forget plane-pulled banners ― there may be a new way to advertise in the sky.

    The Japanese telecom company NTT DOCOMO recently revealed what it claims is the "world's first spherical drone display." Although it appears to be a solid, globe-shaped screen while in flight, the display is actually an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV, or drone) inside a spherical frame with curved LED strips. The LEDs spin rapidly during flight, creating the illusion of a spherical screen. The drone display was showcased April 29-30 during the Niconico Chokaigi conference, a festival of Japan's internet culture.

    Though the technology is not yet ready for commercial use, the company said it should be available by March 2019. These flying screens could be used for advertisements during a sporting event, or to display information at a concert, according to DOCOMO. [Photos from Above: 8 Cool Camera-Carrying Drones]

    "Going forward, the company will explore potential entertainment and messaging solutions for event venues, including stadiums and concert halls," company officials wrote in a statementPreviously, it was challenging to equip a drone with a spherical display because it  interfered with the airflow of the drone's propellers, according to DOCOMO. In addition,  the display's weight tended to drag down the aircraft. The telecom company solved these issues by using a mostly hollow display, which allows for better airflow and is lightweight.

    The spherical frame surrounding the drone has a maximum diameter of about 35 inches (88 centimeters), and the display measures 144 pixels high by 136 pixels wide. The entire device, drone and display, weighs just 7.5 pounds (3.4 kilograms). Since it's relatively small and light, the drone display is highly maneuverable and, according to DOCOMO, could be operated virtually anywhere.

    Scientists Can Now Create Glass Figurines with a 3D Printer

    Scientists Can Now Create Glass Figurines with a 3D Printer

    Intricate glass creations such as miniature castles and tiny pretzels can now be fabricated using 3D printing, according to a new study. The technique could one day be used to manufacture lenses for smartphone cameras as well as other key glass components, researchers said.

    Archaeological research suggests humans have employed glassmaking for millennia. The process typically requires hot furnaces and harsh chemicals. Recently, scientists have investigated whether they could sidestep these drawbacks using 3D printing.

    A 3D printer is a machine that creates items from a wide variety of materials: plastic, ceramic, metal and even more unusual ingredients, such as living cells. These devices work by depositing layers of material, just as ordinary printers lay down ink, except 3D printers can also deposit flat layers on top of each other to build objects in three dimensions. [The 10 Weirdest Things Created by 3D Printing]

    Until now, the only methods for shaping glass using 3D printing also required using a laser or heating the materials to searing temperatures of about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 degrees Celsius), the researchers in the new study said. In both cases, the end products were coarse, rough structures that were not suitable for many applications, the researchers added.

    "People thought glass was too difficult to work with via 3D printing," said study senior author Bastian Rapp, a mechanical engineer at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany

    Now, scientists have developed a new technique to fabricate complex glass structures using a standard 3D printer. The secret, the researchers said, is something they call "liquid glass."

    "What this work does is it closes an important gap in the palette of modern 3D printing," Rapp told Live Science.

    The scientists began with particles made of silica, the same material used to make glass. These particles were only 40 nanometers, or billionths of a meter, wide, which is about 2,500 times thinner than the average strand of human hair.

    These silica nanoparticles were dispersed in an acrylic solution. The researchers could then use a standard 3D printer to fabricate complex items using this "liquid glass," the study said. Ultraviolet light could harden these objects into a kind of plastic similar to acrylic glass.

    When these pieces of plastic were exposed to temperatures of about 2,370 degrees F (1,300 degrees C), the plastic burned away while the silica nanoparticles fused together into smooth, transparent glass structures, the study said. With the aid of additives, this technique can print colored glasses, tinted green, blue or red, for example, the researchers said.

    "Glass is one of the oldest materials that mankind has used, and it's still a high-performance material, and for many applications, the only choice of material," Rapp said. "What our research does is bridge a necessary gap between 21st-century manufacturing techniques and a material that's centuries old."

    The commercial 3D printer the researchers used could print features as tiny as a few dozen microns. For comparison, the average human hair is 100 microns wide.

    This new method does not require harsh chemicals, and it produces glass components smooth and clear enough for use as lenses and in other applications, the researchers said.

    "You can think of creating tiny lenses for smartphone cameras," Rapp said. "You can think about creating chemically and thermally resistant micro reactors made from glass that chemical reactions can take place in."

    This new technique could also help create optical and photonics components for high-speed data transmission, Rapp said. (Photonic devices manipulate light just as electronic circuits manipulate electricity.) "You can also think much bigger, with 3D curved pieces of glass for architecture," Rapp said.

    "We are now spinning off a company to commercialize this technology," Rapp said. "We hope that in a few years' time, glass will be as convenient to 3D print as plastic is nowadays."

    The scientists detailed their findings online April 19 in the journal Nature.

    IN BRIEF
    Another Google founder apparently has plans of building an aircraft. According to sources, the vehicle closely resembles a zeppelin and is currently housed at NASA's Ames Research Center.

    While Larry Page was busy bringing his “flying car” to reality, another Google co-founder, Sergey Brin, was apparently on a similar path, trying to create a vehicle that will take to the skies as well.

    However, unlike Page’s land/air hybrid vehicle, the Kitty Hawk Flyer, which could be introduced into the market as early as this year, Brin’s project is a giant airship resembling a zeppelin that’s currently housed at the NASA Ames Research Center. According to a report by Bloomberg, the project was spurred after Brin saw old photos of the USS Macon, an old airship built by the US Navy.

    This particular prototype could have been created as part of a potential business venture — which would be timely, given that we’re at the cusp of airborne vehicles and flying taxi fleets becoming a reality. Or, it could be simply a passion project for Brin, who apparently has a long-standing fascination with airships. We just don’t know yet.

    News of this project has piqued the curiosity of many. New airship technology could potentially help cut delivery and transport costs, given that it can accommodate massive amounts of cargo and be more fuel efficient. But whatever his intentions are for this project, Brin certainly has a few experienced friends he can tap for advice.

    Impossible Physics: Meet NASA’s Design for a Warp Drive Ship

     
    Mark Rademaker /
    IN BRIEF
    Warp drive would allow us to travel 10 times faster than the speed of light without actually breaking the speed of light – however, most scientists think that the technology will never actually work. Despite this, NASA has released designs for a faster-than-light ship that uses the hypothetical tech.

    Before we jump into this, you should know that a number of scientists are currently researching the feasibility of warp drive (and EMdrive and a number of other modes of faster than light travel); however, most think that such forms of space travel simply aren’t viable, thanks to the fundamental physics of our universe.

    So although part of this article is simply, “Oh my gosh, look at this amazing design,” that’s not the entire point. To that end, let’s take a moment to break this all down a bit so we have an understanding of what exactly is being proposed in relation to warp drive, and why it is met with such skepticism, before we get a bit too carried away…

    Alcubierre warp drive via Anderson Institute
    Alcubierre warp drive via Anderson Institute

    In 1994, physicist Miguel Alcubierre proposed a new kind of technology that would allow us to travel 10 times faster than the speed of light without actually breaking the speed of light. That seems a little contradictory, doesn’t it? After all, we’ve been told time and again that light is the universal speed limit – nothing in the cosmos can travel faster than it (much less 10 times faster).

    And herein lies the key to the Alcubierre drive: When you use it, you aren’t actually moving through space.

    This technology would not actually propel the ship to speeds exceeding light; instead, it uses the deformation of spacetime permitted by General Relativity to warp the universe  around the vessel. Essentially, when the drive is activated the spacetime behind expands, while in the front it contracts. In this respect, the path taken becomes a time-like free-fall.

    Alcubierre’s ideas have lead to a number of interesting thought experiments in quantum field theory; however, as mentioned above, most scientists think that the technology will never actually work. When you think about it, that kind of makes sense. Obviously, warping space requires a lot of mass and energy, and ensuring that the space where you are located isn’t warped is tricky business. Indeed, the proposition was mostly just a thought experiment when it was first proposed – not something Alcubierre thought was actually viable technology.

    As physicist Sean Carroll notes:

    In short, it requires negative energy densities, which can’t be strictly disproven but are probably unrealistic; the total amount of energy is likely to be equivalent to the mass-energy of an astrophysical body; and the gravitational fields produced would likely rip any ship to shreds. My personal estimate of the likelihood we will ever be able to build a “warp drive” is much less than 1%. And the chances it will happen in the next hundred years I would put at less than 0.01%.

    [Reference: Jalopnik]

    That said, scientists will likely be producing papers addressing these ideas for some time. We’ll continue to cover them as they come out (and though things may look painfully dismal for this technology, who knows what the future may hold).

    But on to the design…

    In 2010, NASA physicist Harold White revealed that he and a team were working on a design for this faster-than-light ship, and this is the most recent design of what such a ship might actually look like. As you can see in the image, the ship rests between two enormous rings, which create the warp bubble.

    Image via Mark Rademaker
    Image via Mark Rademaker

    Artist Mark Rademaker worked on the project with White. In the release, Rademaker asserts that he spent over 1,600 hours working on the design. The ship is called the IXS Enterprise, and it is meant to fit the concept for a Faster Than Light ship. Mike Okuda also brought input, and designed the Ship’s insignia.

    To give you some idea of just how awesome warp technology would be: A trip to the nearest star (Proxima Centauri), which rests some four light-years from Earth, would ordinarily take over 17,000 years. However, with the Alcubierre drive, it would take a little under five months. For those of us who have a mental breakdown on 10 hour plane flights, 5 months might still seem like quite a bit of travel time. But when we are talking about the vast cosmic distances between Earth and Proxima Centauri, a 5 month trip would be an achievement of monumental proportions (keep in mind, it took Curiosity 8 months just to reach Mars).

    See more images of the design here.

    The Kitty Hawk Flyer operates over water. Image Credit: YouTube / Kitty Hawk
    The company behind the futuristic aerial vehicle was financially backed by Google founder Larry Page.
    The video, which is the first to feature a working prototype of the Kitty Hawk Flyer, shows an enthusiastic aviator flying the vehicle over a lake to meet up with a group of friends in a boat.

    Described as an "all-electric aircraft", the vehicle is only able to operate over water but doen't require a pilot's license to operate because it falls under the "ultralight" FAA category.

    According to the company, a consumer version of the Kitty Hawk Flyer will be available to purchase before the end of the year however it remains unclear exactly how much it will cost.

    Those particularly keen to get their hands on one though can sign up for a $100 membership that will net them priority placement on the waiting list and a $2,000 discount.

    Off-grid UFO home is completely powered by wind, water and sun

    UFOs could soon be spotted floating on the ocean as cool sustainable homes. Italian boating company Jet Capsule designed what may be the most stylish way to live off the grid: an Unidentified Floating Object powered by renewable energy that provides a chance for people to travel and live on the sea.

    ‘UFOs’ surround the jet capsule, the machine’s predecessor

    Founders Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla said they designed the UFO home for those who desire to “live in a floating house and move slowly around the world.” With 322 square feet of space, the flying saucer-shaped home includes a main floor kitchen and living area, and lower level bathroom and bedroom. Large windows will offer stellar panoramic views – underwater.

    Solar, wind, and water power propel the capsule so it functions entirely off the grid. A hydrojet on the bottom of the UFO draws power from rooftop solar panels to transport the home, while wind and water turbines provide additional power. A water generator provides drinking water via collected rain and even sea water. There’s also a vegetable garden on the rings surrounding the UFO, as well as a deck.

    Maximum speed for the UFO is only four miles per hour, so the houseboat won’t win any races. At the same time, there’s little to fear from stormy weather or choppy waves; Jet Capsule designed the home with an elastic anchor system to ensure it remains stable in rough weather.

    Not only is the home super sustainable, but it will likely be fairly affordable as well. The company is currently looking for investors so they can build their first prototype, and after that they hope to bring the UFOs to market with a price tag of only $200,000 – far less than your average houseboat.

    In a stunt straight out of a science-fiction film, a real-life, jet-powered hoverboard cruised over the Atlantic Ocean.

    Franky Zapata, a hoverboard, took to the skies in a promotional video for the watch company Breitling. The Swiss watchmaker announced its partnership with the Flyboard Air project in December with an incredible video that shows Zapata flying on his hoverboard, reported The Telegraph. Zapata flew about 164 feet (50 meters) over the Atlantic Ocean for almost 7 minutes, The Telegraph said.

    Breitling used the video to announce that it will be the main sponsor of Flyboard Air, with the partnership marking "a new chapter in conquering the skies." [Up She Goes! 8 of the Wackiest Early Flying Machines]

    "By supporting the FlyboardAir project, Breitling's intention is once again to foster the spirit of daring and invention that has always characterized aviation since the time of the very first 'magnificent men in their flying machines' — that taste for adventure [and] that combination of daring and discipline, which consistently drive aeronautics to push the boundaries of feasibility," Breitling officials said in a statement.

    Essentially a flying skateboard — like Marty McFly's famous ride in the 1989 classic movie "Back to the Future Part II" — several hoverboard prototypes have been developed in recent years. The Flyboard Air was invented by Zapata Racing and took four years of development, the company said. The Flyboard Air hoverboard is still a prototype and is not commercially available, the company said.

    However, Zapata and his hoverboard have already set numerous world records. In April 2016, Zapata flew the Flyboard Air almost7,400 feet (over 2,200 meters) from a height of about 160 feet (50 m), setting a new world record for the longest hoverboard flight.

    Unlike the company's original Flyboard, which connects to a watercraft turbine via a long hose, the Flyboard Air is hose-free. The system's "independent propulsion unit" allows the hoverboard to fly for up to 10 minutes, according to Zapata Racing, reaching a maximum speed of 93 mph (150 km/h) and an altitude of 10,000 feet (3,000 m).

    "This has really been a life's work," Zapata said, according to The Telegraph. "Who has never dreamt of leaping out of the water and soaring through the air, free of all constraints? This is the dream that is at the origin of the products we create."
