PAL-V flying car

Did you ever find yourself stuck in traffic and wishing you could just take off and fly away from that living hell? Of course you did! But what if we told you that your daydream is not very far from reality? PAL-V Europe NV has created the first real flying car, a three-wheeled vehicle that can also take off and fly over obstacles just like a regular helicopter.

Called the PAL-V ONE, this outstanding two-seat hybrid vehicle features a gasoline engine that pushes it to speeds of up to 112 mph, both on the road and in the air. Being cleared to fly below 4,000 feet (the airspace with uncontrolled Visual Flight Rules traffic), the gyroplane will take you over lakes, rivers and mountains, sparing you the trouble of finding an alternative route around the obstacle.

Feel free to explore the world in a comfortable and exciting way, both on land and in air! Let yourself conquered by a smooth driving experience characterized by impressive agility, plus perfectly safe and easy take offs, flights and landings. Thanks to its gyroplane technology, the vehicle can be safely brought back on land even in case of engine failure, as the rotor keeps auto spinning for an easy and safe landing.

Noma the best restaurant in the world goes to London

 René Redzepi 
The chef of the best restaurant in the world will be opening a pop-up version of his Copenhagen restaurant Noma in London this summer to mark the Olympic Games.

Best known in the culinary world for pioneering the foraging movement in which chefs use hyper-local ingredients like wild herbs and plants, René Redzepi will be exporting his restaurant Noma to London’s luxury hotel Claridge’s for 10 days.

The pop-up will give Noma fans a better chance at snagging a seat at what’s become one of the most coveted and exclusive dinner reservations in the world.

Noma has topped the World’s 20 Best Restaurants list for two years running and Redzepi was also named one of Time magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World this month.

Redzepi will create a five-course menu that will reflect the signature flavors and dishes from Noma  using local, seasonal British ingredients, says Claridge’s.

“A Taste of Noma at Claridge’s” will be open for lunch and dinner in the hotel’s ballroom from July 28 to August 6. A five-course menu is priced at 240Euro (£195).

Noma is best known for its fanatical approach to foraging but there is much more to this ground-breaking restaurant than the mere picking of Mother Nature's pocket.
It's the entire package, from its ingredient ingenuity to flawless execution, that makes it a beacon of excellence and which leads to an emotive, intense, liberating way of eating, unlike any other. Many have copied chef Rene Redzepi's approach, most have failed. For the best in class, Noma really is the number one place to go.
