The revolutionary concept design shows a helicopter that at high speeds would utilise two extra rear-facing propellers.
Described by Airbus as a 'Compound Helicopter', the alien design would allow the vehicle to travel at speeds of up to around 300 mph.
To put that into perspective the fastest commercially available helicopter is the massive CH-47 Chinook which has a top speed of just under 200 mph.
There are in fact helicopters which already utilising the concept of having side-mounted propellers such as Eurocopter's experimental X3.
What makes the Compound Helicopter different from the X3 is that the X3's propellers are forward facing, while the Compound design has them mounted at the rear.
The Compound also has a more complete wing structure which would allow for better lift and smoother aerodynamic flight.
Another thing you'll notice about the Compound Helicopter is that it doesn't have a tail rotor.
Normally tail rotors are used to provide anti-torque balance for the main rotors. With Airbus' unique design though the two rear-facing propellers provide that stabilisation all on their own.
When the helicopter wants to take off it does so normally and then once at altitude the pilot can engage the higher-speed mode.
The main rotor is wound down to a lower speed and the twin propellers on the side drastically increase their thrust...
Well the tube-based transportation system has come a long way and to prove just how far here's a sneak peak at what travelling in one of the trains will be like.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (one of the companies that has taken on Musk's concept) released a short video during a conference call that showed how they would make travelling in a tiny capsule not only bearable, but actually pleasant.
The company has partnered with Re'Flekt, a firm in Germany, who will be creating the next-generation of screens for the Hyperloop's windows.
You see because Hyperloop works by sending a capsule down a frictionless vacuum tube there's no chance of getting a nice view.
To compensate the company has designed a concept which creates a fake window which would show what the passenger would see if they did actually have a window.
In addition the windows would act as information centres, providing up-to-date info on the weather as well as upcoming events at their destination.

Remember the Motorola RAZR?
Of course you do, it was the flip phone that everyone wanted during the early 00s, and for good reason.
Motorola's V3 RAZR was a design masterpiece, it was thin, extremely well-built and featured that glorious laser-etched metal keyboard that made using a T9 keyboard an absolute dream.
That phone will always have a place in our heart but sadly as technology advanced design elements were dropped and the flip phone was ditched.
Well it looks like Motorola has a surprise up its sleeve, because if this teaser is anything to go by then the company is looking to bring back one of the most iconic smartphone designs.
The RAZR name did indeed continue past the flip phone design, and even led to some very good Android smartphones but since then it has all been very quiet.
Flip phones have had something of a resurgence of late, particularly in countries like South Korea and Japan so if Motorola is looking to make a modern Android version of the RAZR flip phone then that wouldn't actually be too far-fetched.
Indeed you only have to read the company's accompanying teaser line: "Flip back to the Razr days of yesteryear and get ready for the future."
Thankfully we won't have long to wait before we find out. The Lenovo-owned company will reveal all on 9th...
We knew this already, but one father has found a way of turning his Model S into the perfect prank machine against his son.
Both the Tesla Model S and Model X have a self-driving feature called 'Summon'. It allows the driver to remotely summon the car from a garage or parking space simply by tapping a button on the smartphone app.
Well this father neglected to tell his son that his Model S had this feature, and so decided to have a little fun.
Leaving his son in the car, he booted up the Tesla app on his smartphone and commanded his car to pull out of the garage by itself.
Unsurprisingly his son was somewhat alarmed, probably thinking that he had in someway instigated this.
Ending with the famous last words 'My dad's going to kill me', the boy was finally put out of his misery and realised he'd been pranked.
Both of Tesla's cars definitely have a sense of humour built in, for starters there are a whole library of little easter eggs hidden in the software from Bond references to the simple fact that the cars' sport mode is called 'Ludicrous...
