This Filipino hip-hop dancer invented the smallest flying car in the world.
As the years passed by, our technology is pacing and reached an advancement in line with its main purpose, to make human lives efficient and easier. There are inventors who helped change the world. That includes the inventor and developer of a wide range of products from the electric light bulb to the phonograph and motion picture camera, Thomas Edison. Benjamin Franklin who discovered electricity and invented the Franklin stove, James Watt who is the inventor of the steam engine, Alexander Bell who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone, and Galileo who developed a powerful telescope.
But aside from foreign inventors, our country, the Philippines is also proud to have great and innovative minds who also created some famous inventions. In 1975, Roberto del Rosario invented the ‘Karaoke’, Fe del Mundo invented the medical incubator in 1941, the video phone was invented by Gregorio Zara in 1955, and computer microchips were invented by Diosdado Banatao in 1972.
Recently, a Filipino inventor named Kyxz Mendiola successfully completed the test flight for the world’s smallest flying car or drone car as he calls it.
This fellowman was seemingly fascinated with the concept of flying cars and hoverboards. He was inspired by these futuristic vehicles he probably saw in the movies and dreamt of building a flying car one day.
Determined to create his dream vehicle, Kyxz spent a lot of time and put a huge effort into studying the dynamics of flying car. Using drones, he experimented and observe how it flies until he successfully finished his own version of hoverboard last year.
Despite having no background in engineering, it did not limit him. Kyxz is also a member of the popular Hip-Hop dance group Philippine All Stars and he spent most of his earning and life savings on his dream project. But because of financial constraints, he wasn’t able to buy the best motors that would make his project even more successful.
On his recent Instagram post, he proudly posted his latest version of his flying car. This flying vehicle is made up of carbon fiber and equipped with the best motors, with its design look really amazing.
Kyxz Mendiola serves as an inspiration that ordinary people could make things extraordinarily. Coupling our dreams with determination and passion, we are all able to achieve our dream, even more than what we could possibly imagine.
