discrotor

You can bet your bottom hard-earned dollar that DARPA has a bunch of devices, gizmos and vehicles that we have yet to lay eyes upon as the US strives to maintain their military might worldwide. Recently spotted was the DiscRotor, a vehicle that seems to be a rather strange amalgamation of a helicopter and airplane which can hide its rotors in a spinning disc to get around. Currently in the planning phases (who are we to argue?), why not check out the video in the extended post to see just how the DiscRotor will zip about in real life? It supposedly is meant to be a whole lot more mobile, and can get troops in and out of critical situations in a jiffy.
