The original concept called for an outline of  ‘flying phone-box’ inspired by programmes like Star Trek and Doctor Who which would be able to teleport individuals with no prior knowledge of flight on intra-urban journeys by dialing a destination. Accordingly model types were constructed so as to investigate different configurations that feature either a drive-train that powers itself up the sides of the passenger compartment, or else is fixed at either the base or dome. In order to meet anticipated safety requirements the design features a ballistic parachute on top of the booth and an airbag in the base. Follow our progress at
