I really dig this futuristic yet totally retro space taxi by builder ericteo_98, it looks like something right out of a movie. How awesome would it be to see this gliding through the sky against a sci-fi cityscape, dutifully delivering passengers to places we can only dream of. Of course this is the future, so the prices will be crazy too, but maybe the floor wouldn’t be nearly as sticky due to advanced material sciences (who am I kidding, we can’t have nice things).
I love when I watch a movie and very soon after a MOC appears in my Flickr feed, it’s like fate or something. I literally watched this movie (well, mostly listened to) two days ago while at the studio. I was also fortunate enough to work at Digital Domain, and a lot of the models made for this feature were still on display during my time there (yes, technically I was paid to spend a few minutes every week of so ogling at a gorgeous model). I adore this version of Korben Dallas’ taxi by builder Davdup, it makes me want to watch the movie all over again.
I’ve only spent time in Manhattan once, for a working gig so I didn’t get to see as much as I would have liked. Surprisingly enough, I only took a single cab ride the entire time (the subway is pretty much the way to go there) but I can assure you, it wasn’t nearly as nice as this wonderful vehicle by redfern1950s2. And the driver was an anonymous silhouette, not dapper and ready to please like this gentleman.
