The hits from the Geneva Motor Show just keep on coming because the Airbus flying car concept also drives. Built in partnership with Italdesign, the Airbus Pop.Up Concept is part flying car, part drone and part autonomous personal transportation vehicle. The modular concept centers around a part system that involves a capsule, flying apparatus and set of wheels. In other words, when you summon the intelligent Pop.Up you can use it in both flying and driving modes without ever having to get out of the comfy capsule. You could, in theory, be flying high above the crowded city streets below in a fully-electric and zero-emission vehicle that can also land on a wheeled driving platform to get you to your final destination. Airbus expects something like this concept to get off the ground within the next five to ten years, but there are still quite a few issues, of course, like battery life, legal regulations and overall feasibility that need to be worked out before a vehicle like this becomes viable.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
