The Air Tuk-Tuk concept is intended to explore an eVTOL platform that utilizes a minimal amount of new technology, and requires minimal new infrastructure. Conversely, it is designed to leverage as much of the technical expertise and operating culture of existing urban Tuk-Tuk transportation systems as possible. It is not designed to address all aspects of IRL urban air mobility. It does provide a lot of good ingredients for a near-future, human-scale, highly-interactive air vehicle for a game or movie.
