When I first watched this video of a new Japanese Spherical Flying Machine, being a big Tesla fan, I immediately recognized another Tesla patent that has come to life in modern times (Patent # 1,655,114 - October 4, 1927 - Apparatus for aerial transportation). The closest thing to Tesla's patent to date I thought was the Harrier Jump Jet and the Osprey. It's interesting to note that Tesla's VTOL (Vertical Take off and Landing) craft was powered by his Tesla Turbine which would also act as a gyroscope to stabilize Tesla's VTOL. Very interesting to think about to say the least! Is this the future of transportation?...
