If you happen to be in China during a high-rise fire, you might see an aerial assist to the fire fighters on the ground. The latest variant of the EHang 216 is able to carry up to 150 liters of foam and six extinguisher bombs per trip to high-rise fires within a 5 km radius of the station where they're based.


Once this goes into practical use, it really shows how far technology has come over the past few years for Drones and eVTOLS. We have been obsessed with flying cars for some time, but these would be flown autonomously. Check out the video below to see it in action.

Beta Technologies in Vermont are testing the Electric, Vertical Take Off aircraft Alia, which draws design inspiration from the Arctic tern. Leading the Electric 

Flight Revolution Electric flight is here today. The next exciting, inevitable milestone will be its commercialization. We’re at the forefront of making that happen with a team of relentlessly focused, hands-on engineers who are testing, reworking and retesting what will be the world’s most versatile electric aircraft.

Our electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft promises an unprecedented forward leap in energy efficiency and cost savings. But these benefits are just the beginning. Taking a whole systems approach, we will be able to support a variety of missions from virtually anywhere, all in a design that’s just simple enough to be revolutionary.

Below you can see the prototype in a hover test.

The human eye is an incredibly complex piece of equipment, so it’s no wonder that we’ve had a hard time reverse engineering it. Now, researchers have unveiled the world’s first 3D artificial eye, which can not only outperform other devices but has the potential to see better than the real thing.


A team led by scientists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has developed what they call the Electrochemical Eye (EC-Eye). The new 3D bionic eye could enable superhuman sight, night vision and more. Check out the video below of the eye taking a vision test.

It's been a long rough road, a global pandemic, world unrest, protests and riots, and a launch of manned mission back to space for the first time since 2011. It seems like every day we inch a little closer to that global dystopia and cyberpunk world of tech.



So, to kick off your June, here's some interesting concept work by Brazilian Aerospace conglomerate Embraer celebrating 50 years.

The Pulse Concept system transfers its futuristic, transparent pod from the aircraft to the autonomous vehicle, so passengers never leave the safety of the pod.

They initially launched a prototype in 2018 of urban mobility vehicle with Uber to bring air taxis to select cities in 2023. Check out the video below for an eye opening look at our future.


“The fuselage is particularly interesting,” emphasized Jay Beever, vice president of interior design for Embraer Executive Jets. “The pod structure is made of transparent aluminum, otherwise known as Alon. Though this material is classified and currently being considered for use by NASA and other governmental anti-ballistic projects, I think it would make a fantastic fuselage material.”

We've been busy working on Volume 2 of Prisoner of the mind so check back for some new updates coming.
