Your Blowdryer’s Big Brother


Introducing, the Beast! Not quite a motorcycle, not quite a hovercraft… in fact, the closest thing to it might actually be one of those radial fan hairdryers from the 70s because it uses a similar power system! The single pilot compact vehicle achieves both lift and thrust from a single, large, very powerful fan and it maneuvers with fins located at the rear controlled by the rider. Without ground contact, higher speeds can be achieved as the only thing causing resistance is air. But what about braking? Two reverse thrusters divert air in the opposite direction to slow the vehicle. As far-out as the tech may be from becoming a reality, when feasible, it’s sure to give Ducs a run for their money!
