I dont get this article... all some guy did was make a drawing... it has no basis in reality whatsoever, not to say you couldnt do it... elementary school kids draw spaceships all the time and I havent seen someone write an article about those :p

I took a look at some other articles and he's a design student at Pasadena's Art Center and did this as part of his project. He mention it could become a reality but would need a lot more time and funding to complete.

I give thumbs up for the concept but won't be holding my breath for one to ever make it to production.

But, it does remind of me of this...just more anally comfortable:

The trick is that the 'drawing' looks so realistic now. That makes it news.

In the old days when some kid drew something on a scratchpad, it wasn't news.

I think he may actually have a model built. Some of the article mention 32 motors that customize the ride/drive position.

the article specifically says that there are only drawings -poke-

if I make a drawing of a helicopter you can wear on your back do I get an article in popular science? :p
