Escape Vehicle (2004, cardboard and other cheap reappropriated materials, building instruction)

This vehicle was designed as a cheap and easy to build solution for situations where someone desperately needs to escape. It is a streamlined, four-meter-long flying object made of cardboard and other scrap material.
It is conceived to be easily reproducible at a very low cost. Pulling the launch handle in the cockpit will trigger the one-time use hydro-oxygen explosion motor, which will propel the pilot and the vehicle forward over a distance of an estimated 180 meters. Far enough to pass over any wall or border-line.
