The Next Generation Of Drones Are Here.

Designer Ron Ferencz wants you to meet the “ROV”, a new ‘Remote Operated Vehicle’. Most drones dominate the skies, but ROV’s cooler than most drones. It operates underwater. The ROV’s design is a classic blend of bio-mimicry and form-follows-function. It retains its drone-esque character while roughly emulating the way a fish moves from left to right to cut across the water. A drone would be incomplete with the visually dominant fans, and ROV has three of them towards the rear. The main fan triggers upwards and downwards movement, while the pair at the complete end are responsible for propulsion.While we’re on the subject of what drones would be incomplete without, the ROV also comes with a pretty nifty camera that allows one to not just navigate the drone, but also take some rather nifty underwater footage. Pool party or Nat Geo? Where do you see this being used the most?  Let us know.

The Flight Simulation Center In Stuttgart, Germany.


Even those who are afraid of flying might enjoy the experience of piloting a Boeing 737 at the simmINN Flight Simulation Center in Stuttgart, Germany.  The reason confidence is two-fold.  One: The aircraft does not leave the ground as the full-size replica of Boeing 737 with its Learjet 45x cockpit are firmly indoors.  Two: The outside of the plane looks so cool that you will forget your phobias and just want to hop in and fly.  Frankfurt-based architect Boris Banozic is responsible for the concept, interior and graphic design of this center that is open to the general public. Yes, you, too can book a two-hour flight, piloted by Captain You and no crew.  Now, if only an airline company picked up this concept as their head-office design, then I would be really impressed.
