Aeolus airship is like the Flinstones car of zeppelins


We're back from a week of non-stop gadget craziness with this purty flight of fancy: the Aeolus airship by designer Christopher Ottersbach. It's billed by the artist as an entirely eco-friendly way to fly, which, really, is one of the big draws of airships and zeppelins (the downside being that they pop or blow up). It borrows a bit from air balloons, and it's designed to be a 2-4 person vehicle that travels for two weeks or so when it's full of helium. There's a catch though, it's "motorized" by the crew — I guess that means you better get pedaling.

Check out the gallery below for more of the Aeolus.
