Lost Prototype of The Passarola, 1709

Y no flying carz?

A Portugal-Brazil conduit for R&D money, Pre-Montgolfier Bros but post-Vimana, vacuum for lift and magnetics for propulsion (sounds like today's tic-tacs).

What's not to like.

The fact that it couldn't ever work might dim some's enthusiasm.

Good thing it's in the Unicorn Corral then.

The illustrations from 1709 may be speculative. Today's examples are smooth white spheres. That are used for loitering observation.
