24 Hellacious Helicopter Innovations

From Futuristic Flying Vehicles to Flying Hotels

— July 5, 2009 — Autos
If you've ever seen or been on a ride in a helicopter, you're well aware of how badass they are. These hellacious helicopter innovations showcase their great adaptability and design potential.

I'm especially fond of the outrageous car-chopper hybrids and helicopter robots in development. While it's likely we won't see these innovations for awhile--if at all--that the technology is even being researched at all is promising for our future.

Implications - Many consumers today relish in experiencing the unknown or the dangerous as means of relief from stressful and tedious daily schedules. Businesses that provide their clients with thrilling or exciting experiences through their products will appeal to a large audience in today's society.
