Maybe one day instead of hopping in the car to go to the grocery store you just hop into your personal multirotor aircraft. This was advertised as “Singapore’s first personal indoor flying machine”, although if used for indoor flying you may be bothering quite a few people when they get around that prop blast.
Still a very cool project.
Here is the press release.
BEHOLD! THE SNOWSTORM – Singapore’s FIRST indoor personal flying machine!
Designed and built by a team of NUS students, Snowstorm is an electric-powered aircraft capable of vertical take-off and landing that can be controlled by a pilot. This super cool project is part of FrogWorks, a collaboration between the NUS Faculty of Engineering’s Design-Centric Programme and the NUS University Scholars Programme. Now your dreams of flight can become a reality… with your very own personal aircraft!
The Snowstorm vertical take-off and landing prototype is a battery-powered electric multicopter that is the culmination of two semesters’ work under a collaborative program at the National University of Singapore known as FrogWorks.
