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.
