Velocé Personal Helicopter

  • Velocé Personal Helicopter
    A space saving transportation alternative

  • The Velocé is a helicopter that I designed and constructed along with a team of five other industrial designers. While we were under the constraints of making a personal helicopter by only using foamcore and paper products, we didn’t let that hold our imagination back. For the project I assisted with the overall design, contruction, and presentation. The prototype features a dual rotor design with a rotation system that allows the vehicle to move freely in any direction. Also, a key feature is the self retracting legs that allow the helicopter to enter a storage stance so that it has a smaller footprint. Our project participated in a mass unveiling and reception alongside six other personal transportation devices.
