Dubbed “The Beast”, this futuristic single-pilot concept vehicle depicts what the future of personal air vehicles might hold. Berlin-based designer, Rico Kersten, has created no-less than sixteen sci-fi influenced product renderings in the past, most of which could seamlessly slip into the setting of the latest Star Wars feature film, or the futuristic anti-gravity racing game, wipeout. Rico Kersten describes “The Beast” single-pilot vehicle as a “radial fan driven hover-air-bike”, fusing the form of the contemporary motorcycle with the fictitious flying-hovercraft. His collection of captivating renderings served as an entry for the allegorithmic ontest “A Road Trip In 2116 ” judged by a panel of industry professionals including Charlotte Francis, technical artist at Naughty Dog Ruairí Robinson, film director (The Leviathan); and allegorithmic’s founding-member and CEO, Sebastien Deguy. Rico’s renderings can serve to inspire manufacturer’s designers to take greater risks, to design truly dramatic and mesmerizing modes of transportation.
