Gamble in the skies or enjoy the luxury life of floating in a blimp. I guess that doesn't immediately conjur up images of luxury for me, but the interior or this blimp is much different than anything else that soars in the sky.

Popular Science reports, "The Aeroscraft is not lighter than air. Its 14 million cubic feet of helium hoist only two thirds of the craft's weight. The rigid and surprisingly aerodynamic bodyâ€"driven by huge rearward propellersâ€"generates enough additional lift to keep the behemoth and its 400-ton payload aloft while cruising."
