The future of personal flying transportation could look a lot different than a jetpack. The Boeing-sponsored GoFly Prize has announced the 10 winners of the first phase of its international competition challenging teams to create personal flying devices.
The winning teams will focus next on developing prototypes from their concept designs. The aim is to create a device that can carry a single person for 20 miles (32 kilometers) without needing to top up fuel or batteries.
The Leap airbike concept uses a five-rotor design that makes it look like a big human-piloted drone. The geometric angles give it some futuristic flair. And it helps that the concept drawing features a rock-star-cool pilot who could double as an extra in the Solo Star Wars movie.
