What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Web: http://skyflyer.one

English:

Like Leonardo da Vinci many years ago, nearly everybody today has the dream to sit in an aircraft and to navigate freely through the sky.

Skyflyer Development UG wants to make this dream come true for as many people as possible

Skyflyer - The dream of flying -

This universally unique aircraft can be used in various of recreational sports and passenger transportation applications. It is based on the use of the Skyflyer in a controlled airspace (electronically and/or physically) and is protected by several patent applications and trademarks.

Core competences of Skyflyer Development UG are:

  • commercialisation, and future development of the Skyflyer
  • commercialisation, and future development of internal and external control systems
  • conduction, commercialisation, and future development of linked services
  • obtaining Skyflyer systems licensing

German:

Wie Leonardo da Vinci vor vielen Jahren hat nahezu jeder Mensch den Wunsch, in einem Fluggerät zu sitzen und es frei durch den Luftraum zu navigieren.

Die Skyflyer Development UG hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, diesen Wunsch für möglichst viele Menschen wahr werden zu lassen.

Skyflyer - Der Traum vom Fliegen -

Dieses, vom Skyflyer-Team entwickelte, weltweit einzigartige Fluggerätesystem ist einsetzbar in einer Anzahl unterschiedlicher Anwendungen im Freizeit-, Sport- und Personentransportbereich. Es basiert auf der Nutzung des Skyflyers in einem kontrollierten Luftraum (elektronisch und/oder physisch) und ist durch mehrere Patente und Schutzrechte abgesichert.

Die Kernkompetenzen der Skyflyer Development UG sind:

  • die Herstellung, Vermarktung und Weiterentwicklung des Skyflyer
  • die Herstellung, Vermarktung und Weiterentwicklung der internen und externen Steuerungssysteme
  • die Ausführung, Vermarktung und Weiterentwicklung der damit verbundenen Dienstleistungen
  • die Erteilung von Lizenzen im Zusammenhang mit Skyflyer-Systemen

Risks and challenges

1. Development and construction of the Skyflyer prototype

The first prototype flight of the Skyflyer is planned to take place shortly.

Design, structure, construction, and testing are processed with well-established partners (Technical College Aachen, FB 6 aviation and space technology, light construction and body technology, FB 8 engineering and Mechatronik, joining and separation technology, laser technology, DAST-Schweißtechnik (Welding Technology) GmbH, Wegberg, Steinbeis – Transferzentrum Automotive Systems, Ravensburg, Technical Inspection Agency (TUEV) Rheinland/Berlin/Brandenburg, Cologne).

2. Future development of the Skyflyer

To fill the enormous potential of the Skyflyer requires an intense preoccupation with further, possible applications. Parallel to the prototype construction in a closed system (according to a three-dimensional go-cart-system) and apart from future technical development (insertion of lighter, more efficient motors and rotors, weight reduction through light weight construction techniques, take-off and landing possibilities on water, higher payload, etc.), there will be future development of the concept of the Skyflyer for leisure as well as for commercial purposes.

Skyflyer (leisure vehicle):

Virtual equipment and design versions will be generated to demonstrate the individual adaptation possibilities of the Skyflyer. Based on different leisure scenarios respective Skyflyer versions are planned to analyse market response in this area.

Concepts which will be developed further are:
•Skyflyer events at shore routes over water (visible space, new racing concept, by this well suited for media and easy to form compliant to media, flexible).
•Skyflyer events on media defined routes without audience presence (multiple concepts possible, optimum media compatibility, low costs).

Skyflyer (means of transportation):

On the Skyflyer's technical platform various applications are possible in transportation. For this, a corresponding classification of the Federal Office for aeronautical engineering, Braunschweig, or the appropriate EU office as well as considerations of basic data, e.g. payload, performance, passenger transportation capacity, etc., are necessary.

1.Emergency medical services (pending, vertical access to limited rooms)

2.Island hopping and taxi services (Philippines, Indonesia, the Caribbean, Japan and Middle-East)

3.Automated cab service A - B

4.Traffic-way independent transport of passengers and goods from A - B (beneficial in urban regions with high traffic as well as in thinly populated regions without infrastructure).
