EVTOLs (I've been talking about it often lately) are the future of air mobility. The land spaces for transport will tend to become increasingly restricted due to the increase of vehicles on the road. Assuming a strong development of this vehicle in the next decades, how will the sector evolve?
Camper ready to take off
Marcelo inspired his flying house concept from the Polestar design, the brand Volvo electric cars. Of course, everything follows that same design philosophy. Aguilar “sees” an eVTOL equipped with a protective shell capable of encapsulating a large cabin that lets in natural light from all sides.
It is neither more nor less than a lounge cabin powered by four technologically advanced micro engines, a bit like a current quadcopter. How will these “flying houses” be affected by aerodynamics? This is perhaps a question that can be posed in a few years. Once landed, the recreational aircraft folds away its wings and becomes a sort of hyper-technological and minimalist hut.
Comfortable in the clouds and on land
Inside, Polestar Air.V has a living room section, kitchen, small bedroom, bathroom and balcony access area. A control station with two pilot seats is used to steer each of these flying houses. In airplane mode, the chairs (in an elevated position) face the window with control panels and, once landed, rotate around the base to meet the lounge area.
