We start this year by featuring a new concept from Oscar Viñals, which we’re pretty sure you would already guess, yes, it’s about Future space tourism. You can read further about this project from Oscar description below.
A few years ago to talk about -Space Tourism- was part of Science Fiction. The possibility to “reach” the border between Earth and Space for merely “Adventurers” who are looking for new sensations, people who are not strictly professionals Astronauts; is now, because they have a feasible possibility to do it, thanks to private Space Projects. The new technologies and development of new materials -for example-, make this possible with greater efficiency and reducing expenses.
XLDron “M” Gravity This is a concept of future’s Space Tourism Crafts, thought and designed so that, in a not too distant future, potentials “Space Tourists” will see their dream fulfilled: to “reach” the “outer space” in an awesome trip.
The XLDron “M” Gravity, would consist of two independent vehicles; an unmanned aircraft named XLDron (like a “shuttle”), that carries a rocket-plane docked, named “M” Gravity (The “M” Gravity could carry 4 crew members and 10 Space Tourists).
The XLDron unmanned aircraft, would be like a “Sky Surfboard”, equipped with three turbojet engines and a structure of resistant composite materials of ultra-low density, capable of carrying up with the “M” Gravity or “Space Surfer” at an altitude of 65,000 ft. and reaching a speed of Mach 1,2; in this phase the two vehicles are detached, the “M” Gravity ignites its rocket’s engine until reaches an altitude of 100km. (Micro-g environment), remaining a few minutes experimenting Zero-G sensations, and then… returning to base in a glider flight.

Tuvie has received “XLDron M Gravity Space Tourism” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
Renew is an innovative concept steamer that features two steam blades to clean and refresh cloths effectively. With the combination of an infrared scanner and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system, this concept gathers information about a cloth from particularly designed clothing tags. It offers comprehensive safety and stop working if an anonymous object is detected. It features an OLED touch screen input taking mechanism that will allow users to operate the steamer and learn about their clothing. Renew is made of recycled glass and aluminum and can save a considerable amount of space of your home interior with its compact size which is only 25% of the current washing machines.
Check out this awesome backpack that will surely catch your attention. Reppo II looks like a stylish bag with in-built pair of full-range loudspeakers and an amplifier. This concept is designed by a student Joonas Saaranen. You just need to plug in any audio source, tie the whole thing on our back and share your choice of music with your friends. It would have been better if the big black patches were a sub-woofer. The whole concept is just perfect for all music lovers. So, get ready to kick out the jams as you walk down the street.
