May the Fourth be with you…
Created by Aerofex, the rotocraft uses helicopter dynamics to lift and propel this motorcycle-sized vehicle across rough terrain. The vehicle’s first test flight occurred back in 2008, but ultimately ended in flames. But after years of improvements and field-testing, the vehicle has finally achieved driving stability with the ability to execute sharp turns and hover in place. The latest iteration of the vehicle can fly up to 15 feet in the air and reach speeds of 30 miles per hour. (via Star Wars hover bike rides into reality from the Mojave Desert | DVICE)
Illustrator and photographer Vesa Lehtimäki (AKA Avanaut) used a series of excellent scale models from various science fiction films and took some amazing photos of each. From Star Wars to Battlestar Galactica, you can see his amazing poster design that combines the entire collection on Flickr.
