Hope that you will enjoy it.
Desciprtion of the project :
There has always been a fascination with VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft in the history. The development of this advanced technology and project started back in the mid 1980's. Design and engineering was created by Boeing engineer's in Arlington Washington.
After a century of unfulfilled promises, there are still some obstacles to overcome, including receiving approval from the FAA but nowadays, we are very closed to see flying cars fill the skies in the next few decades.
Fuzo is VTOL vehicle concept powered by four turbines allowing, high-speed horizontal flight and easy handling. It can reach speeds of 400 mph, but will cruise at around 350 mph.
Once on the ground the turbines switch into wheels and Fuzo becam like a normal car.
The structure is made by very light materials such as carbon fibre, Kevlar and carbon nano-tubes and the bubble canopy can take three passengers including the driver, in a very hightech comfort.
To make the car safe and available to the general public, it will anable the posibility to be completely controlled by a fly-by-wire system (computers using Global Positioning System).
In case of an accident, the vehicle will release a parachute and airbags, internally and externally, to cushion the impact of the crash.
The controls are simplified, with just two joysticks, one on each armrest driver seat, controlling thrust and steering according. The left joystick allows the car to spin on its axis while the right manages tilt and direction. And two foot pedals control power and brakes.
The potential of Fuzo is unlimited because traffic congestion is much lower in the sky, given that no roads need to be built to enable more traffic and there’s all that vertical space to work with.
