Swiss UAV KOAX X-240

If Apple built a UAV what would it look like? Well, it might look something like the Swiss UAV KOAX X-240. Winner of a 2010 Red Dot Design Award, Swiss UAV has been focused on developing smaller sized vertical take-off (think: helicopter) unmanned aerial vehicles for use by civilians and militaries. Partnered with Saab Aerospace, Swiss UAV has created two UAV’s, The NEO and its smaller brother, the KOAX (shown above) — a coaxial rotor, turbine-powered vehicle designed to handle moderate payloads with incredible precision. It looks both menacing and modern, and we can’t help ourselves wanting to strap a Red Scarlet to the bottom of it and fly over New York City taking photographs.
