Inspired by airships and paragliding sports, the Sky Voyage concept aims to expand traffic networks to the sky by utilizing airspace to relieve urban traffic congestion on the ground. It is a hybrid glider-airship of sorts can take off vertically like a blimp. Once it’s airborne, the gas envelope rotates 90 degrees to form an airfoil, providing additional lift while the craft is in motion. The Sky Voyage seats one and is powered by hydrogen fuel-cells driving a pair of small turbine engines, and when you’re all done cruising around, it deflates and partially collapses to the point where it still probably won’t fit in your driveway.
