Flying cars under development vary significantly

Spurred by technology advances and demand for transportation alternatives in increasingly congested cities, entrepreneurs around the globe are vying to become the first to develop a commercially viable “flying car.” The designs vary greatly, and most aren’t actually cars capable of driving on roads. Here are some examples:

Vahana

European aircraft manufacturer Airbus is working at its Silicon Valley research center on a driverless flying taxi that at first will have a pilot, but will later be autonomous. The vertical takeoff-landing, all-electric aircraft is a cockpit mounted on a sled and flanked by propellers in front and back. Airbus plans to test a prototype before the end of 2017, and to have the first Vahanas ready for production by 2020.

Cormorant

Israeli tech firm Urban Aeronautics originally designed its people-carrying drone as an “air mule” for military use. It takes off vertically and has a standard helicopter engine, but no large main rotor. Its lift comes from two fans buried inside the fuselage. Two smaller ducted “fans” mounted in the rear provide forward movement. It can fly between buildings and below power lines, attain speeds up to 115 mph, stay aloft for an hour and carry up to 1,100 pounds

___

Lilium Jet

German technology company Lilium Aviation is working on a two-seater aircraft that will take off vertically using 36 electric fan engines arrayed along its wings. The aircraft will hover and climb until the fans are turned backward slowly. After that, it flies forward like a plane using electric jet engines. The company has been flight-testing small scale models. The aircraft will have an estimated cruising speed of up to 190 mph and a range of 190 miles.

AeroMobil 3.0

The Slovakian company AeroMobil has developed a car with wings that unfold for flight. It uses regular gasoline and fits into standard parking spaces. It can also take off from airports or “any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long,” according to the company’s website. Driver and pilot licenses will be required.

___

EHang 184

Chinese drone maker EHang has been flight-testing a person-carrying drone in Nevada. The vehicle is a cockpit with four arms equipped with rotors. Takeoff and landing targets are pre-programmed. A command station in China will be able to monitor and control the aircraft anywhere in the world, company officials say.

S2

Joby Aviation of Santa Cruz, California is developing a two-seat, all-electric plane with 12 tilt rotors arrayed along its wings and tail. The aircraft takes off and lands vertically and can achieve speeds up to 200 mph, according to the company’s website.

___

Transition/TF-X

Terrafugia, based in Woburn, Massachusetts, began working a decade ago on a car folding wings that can fly or be driven on roads that’s called the Transition. The company says it plans to begin production of the Transition in 2019. Terrafugia is also working on a “flying car” called the TF-X — a car with folding arms and rotors for vertical takeoff and landing.

___

Volocopter

This two-seater, electric multicopter from German company e-volo has 18-rotors and looks like a cross between a helicopter and a drone. It is controlled from the ground, eliminating the need for a pilot license.

___

Zee

This Mountain View, California, aircraft developer bankrolled by Google co-founder Larry Page says on its webpage that it is working on a “revolutionary new form of transportation” at the “intersection of aerodynamics, advanced manufacturing and electric propulsion.” Company officials declined to provide details about Zee’s projects.

What Is the Most Popular Color to Wear in 2017?

The first time I thought that pink looked really badass was when Rihanna showed up to the Grammys in 2015. She wore a double-tiered Giambattista Valli dress that seemed to take over the red carpet. Though it invited plenty of cupcake memes, there was nothing sweet about it. Scan through her wardrobe and you’ll see how Rihanna has always styled the color with her signature edge. It turns out she was just ahead of the game.

As we followed the runways at Paris Haute Couture Week this season, we were impressed by the many pink poufs, including Lily-Rose Depp’s Chanel wedding gown. Though these designs might have been created with a delicate hand, finished with whimsical, girlie details, it would take guts to wear them — to know that everyone would be staring at you. It would take confidence to glide along in all those extra layers of tulle.

Throw out all the attributes you used to associate with pink, because it’s gone through something of a transformation. In our eyes, pink still represents femininity, but a daring, confident brand of femininity. Pink doesn’t blend in with the crowd; it’s the single hue women are opting for when they want to stand out. Read on to track the color’s latest transformation, from the runways to the red carpet and on the street, too.

The 28-year-old model from Kortrijk, Belgium, revealed that she was born with an X and Y chromosome and had kept the secret quiet for years, only telling good friend Alexander Wang about five years ago. “It is very important to me in my life right now to break the taboo,” she said to USA Today. “At this point, in this day and age, it should be perfectly alright to talk about this.”

Since sharing her story, Hanne is now a strong advocate in raising awareness about intersex peopleand campaigning against nonconsensual corrective surgeries. For Hanne, being born intersex has had little effect on her success in the industry, giving her an impressive fashion résumé. Ahead, read up on this empowering model because she’s the cool girl you instantly spot on the streets at Fashion Week and someone who you’d want to be friends with.
