Professional (and aspiring) gymnasts find the inflatable and low-friction airtrak quite useful, but those are also qualities that make them interesting for everyone else. If we were to provide a crude introduction, it is the trampoline’s cousin; albeit one that is better groomed and is easier to carry around.
Sequential is a series of car sculptures by French artist Antoine Dufilho, presented at M.A.D.Gallery. The set looks at eight famous cars, and has their shape materialized into successive layers.

While the structure itself is stationary, the skilled crafting gives them a life, making these models appear kinetic.
Tesla cars have made quite an impression on the road, and even in space! The company has however, shown little interest to take to the sky. But that is no reason to put a cap on imagination! Designer Antonio Paglia has created this innovative concept called the Tesla Model H. This flying Tesla combines the tech of helicopters and drones to create a fresh concept. An exoskeleton formed like a ribbon covers the body of the helicopter, while the overall form takes inspiration from biomorphic as well as robotic shapes. Four mini rotors have been added to the ribbon-exoskeleton to make maneuvering easier, and the flight more stable.

The seat is made from genuine leather, and for a touch of personalization, the rider’s name finds place on the frame bracket. Costs $1600.
Flying cars continue their attempts to come out of imagination into the real world. The latest iteration in the long line of flying concepts is the AirisOne. This all-electric flying car is the brainchild of Bermuda-based Airis Aerospace. Capable of ferrying five passengers, the AirisOne will have the ability to be fully autonomous, with options for semi-autonomous driving. The taxis will fly from (and to) a network of envisioned “Vertiports”, enabling travel throughout a city.
