Killeen, Texas – InfinftyWingDrive.org is seeking funding towards its second prototype of the Infinity Wing Drive, a new method of transportation leveraging a machine that is designed to duplicate the wing motion of an insect in flight, on a human scale.
The development of this machine has taken place over the span of three decades, with the ultimate goal of developing it into a viable means of transportation, powered with a small electric or gas motor.
The original idea was born in 1972, after inventor and founder James Kelfer read an article about hang gliders, sparking an interest in light-weight technology for human flight. This was followed by years of conceptualizing different devices to re-create methods of wing movements used in nature. Ultimately, studies of high-speed photography of insect wings in flight drew him to the horizontal figure eight movement.
Kelfer was awarded a US patent on the design. The prototype is a basic mechanical device in its earliest stages of development. Consider it like the very first internal combustion engine, primitive compared to the engines in our cars today, however the basic design has not changed they still use pistons, cylinders, crankshafts and valves but have evolved in other ways.
The first and only prototype is constructed of metal parts that are hand-made and hand-fitted. However, the dozens of moving parts designed to move in synchronized harmony need to be rebuilt to modern engineering standards, to reach the faster wing beats per minute needed for flight.
Donate now to help build the second generation prototype, and be a part of the future of flight. Visit https://infinitywingdrive.org to donate today.
About Infinity Wing Drive
Infinity Wing Drive was created by James Kelfer when he realized that modern transportation was not a viable solution for the future. Looking towards green technology, Infinity Solutions aims to bring forward-thinking ideas to fruition through hard work and engineering.
