I wanna try that…
All I need is an ewok.
Travelling at high speed on an unstable platform between two unshielded blender blades. What could possibly go wrong?
I suppose the project needs some strong shields aroung the blades. Or maybe is a human milk shake project ?

Its okay…. needs more designing and power
Needs wheels for rough landings.
I don’t really fancy standing above 2 giant fans! needs more work but I like that the idea is slowly becoming a reality

Star wars is coming everyone choose your side
Well… looks amazing… but the original project is from the 50’s. US army was already flyin with that stuff… and It was much more complicated and unstable than this!
Im sure on top of the fan theres some kind of grill… so u dont rick to become jam…

Not calling fake but at 0:26 in the second video you can see the blades of the fan at the bottom of the screen and they are not spinning at all.
Maybe I just don’t understand how it works but they look like the blades of the fan, which shouldn’t be visible if they are spinning so fast as to cause lift.
