Rico Kersten – The Beast

The Beast is a Hover-Air-Bike that is powered by a Radial Fan like those you can find on Graphic Cards or some older Hairdryers from the 70’s. I liked the idea that one powerful Fan could lift and move the vehicle. Some Wings on the bottom are used for steering and two big thrust reverse brakes stop it. I started with some loose sketches to find a form. At the beginning i wanted to create a big ship with the Fan as a center, but after some tries i decided to create a smaller vehicle suitable for one Pilot.
