Student Zheng Xiaowen sits in the Snowstorm, a personal flying machine built by a group of engineering students of the National University of Singapore (NUS), as it flies in NUS gymnasium in Singapore December 10, 2015. The prototype, a collaboration between the Engineering faculty’s Design-Centric Programme and the University Scholars Porgramme, sports 24 motors each driving a propeller of 76cm in diameter and can bear the load of a single person up to 70kg for a flight time of about five minutes. The flight control system provides automated flight controls similar to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as well as manual control by the pilot. REUTERS/UNI PHOTO
