9 futuristic vehicles, the existence of which you never knew existed
Ever since, when people first realized that walking speed is lacking, we are constantly searching for new, innovative ways to travel. Car? It is not enough. Try self-contained electric racing car. Simple submarine good, but what about the one that will get people to the bottom of the Mariana Trench? People just can not resist such inventions.
1. Unmanned electric vehicles on Roborace
These cars are designed by Daniel Simon, are the real epitome of science fiction. They participate in Roborace, series, belonging to Formula E world tour of 10 races will start in the autumn of 2016. All machines are completely unmanned, powered by electricity, and can reach speeds of over 305 km / h. These machines - the future of motor racing, and compared them with unmanned vehicles Goggle look like child's play.
2 bathyscaphe "Trieste"
In 1960, the "Trieste" with two passengers became the first to operate the vessel, reached the bottom of Challenger Deep - the site of the Mariana Trench and the deepest point in all the oceans of the world. "Trieste" was similar to the airship, not counting the float filled with petrol. Bathyscaphe sank to the bottom with the help of iron ballast, which is dumped in front of the ship lift. It is difficult to imagine anything more frightening descent to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, and that the ship could sink to such depths - simply incredible.
3. The human-powered aircraft helicopter type Atlas
Human-powered aircraft helicopter type may seem not so futuristic invention, but to create it took a huge share of engineering. Not to mention the fact that the future of waste-free transport. Human-powered aircraft AeroVelo Atlas has created a company that has received for his Sikorsky prize of $ 250,000.
4. Rinspeed sQuba
If you think like sQuba came from the James Bond movie, you're right. Design submarine Swiss company Rinspeed car was inspired by the movie "The Spy Who Loved Me." sQuba completely waste-free. For safety reasons, it is convertible, but do not worry - the cabin does not hurt either sea or fresh water.
In 1930, the invention is patented J. A. Pervz. Dinasfera was unicycle vehicle that stopped and so on experimental stage. There were two models - gasoline, electrically, and both worked fine until Dinasfera continued to move in a straight line. The prototype does not hold, because the invention is not hindered, and it was impossible to steer. Forgetting for a vehicle.
Take a look at Dinasferu in action:
6. A modern interpretation jetpack
Yves Rossy, an inventor and a former combat pilot from Switzerland, created a modern version of this classic jetpack. It's kind of a reactive costume with wings, capable of speeds up to 300 km / h. Rossi earned the nickname "Jetman" after being tested in a pack of test flights, which are widely covered in the media.
7-speed bike of Eta
This is the real future of the bike. Eta bike is not just speed, and the fastest in the world - in 2015 it reached a speed of 140 km / h. He, like human-powered aircraft Atlas, created AeroVelo team.
8. "Evolution" - water, air and land transport
In fact, created by Russian designer Alexander Begak "Evolution" - is the vehicle for all occasions, designed for both civilian and military. "Evolution" can fly at an altitude of 4 kilometers and can drive 400 meters without refueling, equipped with a special floating device, and it is virtually impossible to detect by radar.
9. UH-19XRW Hoverwing
UH-19XRW - is closest to the flying car (or rather, a ship) that we have. All you need is to get a license, and, yes, you can buy Hoverwing. The ship floats on the water at a distance of one to two meters, and can move at speeds up to 120 km / h. But it is costing you a lot of money - a model with 130 hp. from. It will set you back at least $ 179,000.
