The Puffin is a project of NASA's Langley Research Center. It is designed to fly entirely on electricity, a far more efficient form of power than combustion. Without its pilot, Puffin will weigh only 180 kg. This Spring the designers plan on unveiling a 1/3 scale mockup. Who wouldn't want one of these in the garage? Electric flight may be closet than we think!
