SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
CONCLUSION: TRANSPORTATION
VERTICAL TAKEOFF & LANDING VEHICLE (VTOL)
Moller International, Davis, CA, USA
For many years Fuller envisioned a scientifically designed vehicle to complement his scientifically designed house.
It would be able to operate on land, on & under water, and in the air.
It would be capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL).
It would be relatively small & economical so that the average person could afford to own one & park it in the back yard or on the roof.
It would be able to cruise at about 10,000 feet & fly approximately 300 miles per hour with a range of about 400 miles before refueling.
It would be able to carry four people & cost no more than a medium priced car.
Such vehicles are now being developed!
