FLYPmode-The First Crowdsourced Military Vehicle



Behold, the first military vehicle created via crowdsourced design! Called the FLYPmode, it was developed in part by an ex-marine, who knows what advancements need to be made to help save lives on the modern battlefield. Built to withstand explosive blasts, the likes of which account for most of the recent deaths in the Middle East, FLYPmode was made in less than four months and represents the future of military tech: innovative vehicle designs that can be built quickly with modern combat needs in mind. If you're interested, you can see the fascinating designs that led to this concept vehicle at the Local Motors link below. Will bloated defense budgets become a thing of the past, when we design the vehicles of the future for ourselves?

Just for the record there is no such thing as an ex-marine. The proper term is 'former Marine'.
The person that wrote the blurb above obviously didn't bother to read the article. Rebecca Boyle, the author, got it right. "Rogers, a former Marine with nine years of service, takes umbrage at the notion that a crowdsourced, rapid prototyping process is unsafe."
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
