Based on a tip I got from teammate Darren Brooker, I checked out this TechSpot story (published on my 60th birthday):
Lilium GmbH is based near Munich, Germany — an internationally renowned high-tech hub for mobility. The founding team met while studying at the Technical University of Munich where they shared a common vision of revolutionizing the way we travel. Today, Lilium has attracted more than $100m in funding and employs more than 300 people, bringing together a wealth of experience and expertise from across the world. [lillium.com]
My favorite quote in the TechSpot story was:
"They [Lilium] see themselves as a Tesla meets Uber meets Boeing, as the pioneers of short-range versatile aircraft."
The big question is "Will it work?" Reading the comments on the TechSpot article, many are skeptical. What are your thoughts? Would you ride in this thing?
