    NFT Inc. is currently in development of a zero-emission roadable eVTOL capable of landing in major cities. The vehicle will have a driving range of 62 miles (100 km) or a flying range of 310 miles (500 km), or combination of flying and driving at lesser ranges. The compact design allows the vehicle to fit in a standard automobile parking space.

    The vehicle will have two variations: a two-seater and a four-seater. The...

    The Snowstorm multirotor eVTOL was created by a team of students at the National University of Singapore (NUS). It is composed of a hexagonal aluminum frame, carbon fiber plates, kevlar ropes, and rubber landing gear to ensure a safe flight. Additionally, the team used 3D printing when a specific fit was needed.

    The team started with a one-sixth size prototype, then moved to a...
