The World’s Most Expensive Doorbell

This innovative, single-pilot concept was designed by German designer Rico Kersten – known for creating a sci-fi model as his entry for the Allegorithmic Contest. It looks like a futuristic vehicle straight from the Star Wars universe. According to Rico, ‘The Beast’ as he calls his innovation, is a Hover-Air-Bike that is powered by a radial fan like those you find on graphic cards or some older hairdryers from the 1970’s.

He liked the idea that one powerful fan could lift and move the vehicle. Some wings on the bottom are used for steering and two big thrust reverse brakes stop it. Initially the designer planned to come up with a huge ship with a fan in the middle, but later he decided to create something small and the result is the Beast.
