Designer Imagines An Electric Helicopter as Tesla Model H

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.

Watch Robots Build The Tesla Model S [video]

Tesla’s factory in Fremont, California makes about 400 cars a week, the stunning Model S. They bought the factory from Toyota in 2010, spent a year retooling it, and started production of the Model S sedan in 2012. The coolest part about the factory perhaps, is seeing robots work in tandem to build the cars. Watching those red machines get to work in building cars is quite mesmerizing and pretty darn impressive.
