A man in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province devoting himself for over 10 years to the invention of dual-use vehicles which can both run along the ground and fly in the sky received a patent for the invention this August, local media hsw.cn reported on Oct. 9, 2018.
The patent was granted for the invention of “a solution for the aerodynamic configuration and power system of dual-use (land and air) sedan cars and service cars”.
The inventor An Shuya, a 78-year-old retired senior mechanical engineer, started the study in 2000 and has become a regular visitor of the municipal library since then, immersing himself in books on automobile industrial technologies and aeronautical technologies.
He had been enjoying a happy life after retirement until one day, his wife shared her concern with the present traffic congestion, and suggested that her husband should do something about it. Hearing this, the man decided to make use of his expertise in mechanical manufacturing and attempted to create a “flying car” so as to help resolve the traffic jam issue.
When his study finally yielded fruits, as a gift to his wife, An applied for the patent with the name of his wife.
The invention is a combination of the automobile and aircraft, and this new type dual-use vehicle is at present a conceptual machine that needs further detailed development and manufacturing, An explained.
“I haven’t been able to materialize the vehicle, for it needs complicated and refined manufacturing techniques,” An said, hoping that people of vision could help him to materialize the invention.
