What I’ve Got: XploreAir Paravelo


The XploreAir Paravelo is the world’s first flying bicycle, capable of reaching altitudes up to 4,000 feet. The product features a normal foldable bike, usable for commuting, that can be attached to the flying contraption for recreation. The product shows attention to detail by creating a detachable portion for daily use. The product is organic in that it allows flying to be just as natural as riding a bike. Finally, the product taps into the common human desire of flight. Therefore, this product strikes me as desirable in theory.

However, since this means of flying may not be safe, its theoretical desirability may be outweighed by the fears of the public, rational or otherwise. By not making design features for safety obvious, this product overlooks a very major detail that needs to be better addressed.
