The project is set in the future in 2053, where the cities are faced with difficulties from floods due to global warming.
The vehicle designed by operating principles of air hockey where hot air rises above cold air. By creating enclosed walled-off roads with thermal pipes running underneath and through the use of proper ventilation on the wall the vehicles can be suspended in the air. By releasing cold air through the ventilation system on the walls, an air current is created within the wall of the road. This provides an endless loop of rising air which allows for vehicles to stay afloat, just as an air hockey puck stays slightly above ground.
Design & Function
The package is planned for 2 people seated in tandem position. It allows for optimization of the vehicle body balance and stability. Wide wing type of body helps floating on the road like a flying squirrel.
