Want Your Own Flying Car? Read This Article

This flying vintage car!!Wish you had the same?

Yeah potteritians,its the same very Ford owned by Arthur Weasly which always came to Harry’s rescue,in his out-house-break(better call it jailbreak…).

Every muggle’s surprise and every muggle’s wish,this car,whether it was rescuing harry or just a joy ride amongst the skies,it was fit for all terrains.With an unmatchable average.

The Flying Ford Anglia was a light blue Ford Anglia 105E Deluxe that was modified by Arthur Weasley to be able to fly, as well as become invisible, via the use of a specially installed device called an Invisibility Booster. It was also modified so that it could fit eight people, six trunks, two owls, and a rat comfortably.And what you call a car too spacious-a caaaar!

The Flying Ford Anglia was first used in the summer of 1992 by Fred, George, and Ron Weasley to rescue Harry Potter, who was locked up in his room at the Dursleys’ and had been unable to receive any mail from the Wizarding community as a result of Dobby’s attempts to protect him.

At the start of their second year, Harry and Ron used the enchanted car to get to Hogwarts when the entrance to Platform 9¾was sealed by Dobby, in another attempt to protect Harry by preventing his return to school.

The car was used again and again in the series,these are just a few of the instances.Well for you muggles,how nearer is this dream to reality?Lets find that out.

A flying car is a type of personal air vehicle that provides door-to-door transportation by both road and air.

A practical flying car would have to be capable of safely taking off, flying and landing throughout heavily populated urban environments. However, to date, no vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicle has ever demonstrated such capabilities. To produce such an aircraft would require a propulsion system that is quiet, to avoid noise complaints, and has non-exposed rotors so it could be flown safely in urban environments. Additionally, for such aircraft to become airborne, they would require very powerful engines. Many types of aircraft technologies and form factors have been suggested, such as ducted-fan and tiltrotorvehicles, but most previous designs have suffered from problems,such as that of noise and stability.

Prototypes and test flights are already in action.For instance:

1. Urban Aeronautics’ X-Hawk is a VTOL turbojet powered aircraft announced in 2006. 

2.The Moller Skycar M400 is a prototypepersonal VTOL (vertical take-off and landing)aircraft.Moller has been making VTOLS from 1960s though it is yet to achieve free flight out of ground effect.

3. The Xplorair PX200 is a French project of single-seater VTOL aircraft without rotating air foil, relying on the Coandă effect and using an array of small jet engines calledthermoreactors embedded within tiltwings’ body. Announced in 2007, the project has been funded by the Government of Franceand is now supported by various aerospace firms. A full-scale drone is scheduled for flight at Paris Air Show 2017, followed by the commercialization of a single-seater flying car in the years after.

4. On May 7, 2013, Terrafugia announced theTF-X, a plug-in hybrid tilt-rotor vehicle that would be the first fully autonomous flying car. It has a range of 500 miles per flight and batteries are rechargeable by the engine. Development of TF-X is expected to last 8–12 years, which means it will not come to market before 2021-2025.

So yeah,its just half a decade before we see the first flying cars hovering above our cities.Lest the cost,the dream is the fastest turning into reality.Cheers potteritians!

Teleportation AKA “Apparition”

“Harry felt Dumbledore’s arm twist away from him and re-doubled his grip: the next thing he knew everything went black; he was pressed very hard from all directions; he could not breathe, there were iron bands tightening around his chest; his eyeballs were being forced back into his head; his ear-drums were being pushed deeper into his skull”-

-Harry Potter’s first experience with Apparition.

Apparition is a magical method of transportation and is basically the magical action of travelling by having the user focus on a desired location in their mind, then disappear from their current location and instantly reappear at the desired location.In short, it is a form of teleportation. Disapparition,on the contrary, means disappearing from a place.

There have been several instances of apparation, i.e., teleportation in the harry potter series.For example,Voldemort performed a combination of this method and unsupported flight in the films as he and Harry were falling off a cliff in The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, resulting in Harry being inside the smoke pillar with Voldemort.

The Times of Potter

“I mark the hours, every one, Nor have I yet outrun the Sun. My use and value, unto you, Are gauged by what you have to do.”-Time Tuner.

 A Time-Turner is a special timepiece in which an Hour-Reversal Charm has been encased, for added stability. It is a device used for time travel, and it resembles an hourglass on a necklace.And we have seen it being used by Harry and Hermoine in The Prisoner of Azkaban.

Ever wondered if anything as above such stuff even possible?Is time travel possible?There comes the Tacheyon-the famous subatomic particle which is believed to leap into past and to future.

It has an imaginary mass,i.e.,negative mass and a velocity more than that of light,actually sometimes,even infinite velocity.Decrease its energy,and it accelerates even more.Wow!Amazing,isn’t it?

And this faster than light speed makes it possible to time travel,leaping from one space time zone to another space time zone.That is,from present to past or present to future.Bizarre!

Now this particle is still to be found out.Though it is very much possible to exist theoritically,and there have been many positive indiacations as well-from the experiments of the 70s and 80s to the CERN’s LHC of today about its presence.

So,lets keep our fingers crossed in the hope of finding it soon.Believe it,once it’s found…and within some decades Time Travel,Teleportation and all such stuff will be a reality.An ode to the Harry Potter.

Invisibility Cloak goes real!!

So,today in Pottertech,we are going to discuss about the Invisibility Cloak.Yes!the same cloak which Harry used in The Philosopher’s Stone for the first time.And later,it came to his recue in The Chamber of Secrets,Goblet of fire,etc.

It is a device using which one could roam around undetected.Sounds interesting na.Now,who wouldn’t want such an interesting stuff.But,we don’t know any magic to create such stuff…do we?So here,once again,the magic of science comes to our rescue.

The invisibility cloak from the iconic “Harry Potter” may not be as far-fetched a dream as many consider it to be. Scientists have developed a coating that can make curved surfaces seem flat, creating the illusion of there being no object at all,i.e.,invisibility.

In September 2015, the University of California, Berkeley, developed a type of invisibility technology that reflects light to keep objects hidden. Their method uses gold nanoantennas to “reroute reflected light waves” so that the object it is covering is invisible when the gold’s polarization is turned on. However, the scale is  microscopic — “barely” 80 nanometers thick and only large enough to cover a few biological cells.

An invisibility cloak for the viruses and bacterias,maybe.Only if they don’t create some chaos using it,haha.Cmon guys,even microbes like Harry Potter,a’int it?

On a serious note,though its a small step…but a giant leap.Now,that we have started,lets do this!!!

Muggle Legilimency


Dreams…we all have dreams.Though here I would like to talk about the dreams we see while sleeping, the creations of our subconscious mind.
Ever wondered how good it would be if we could control our dreams as depicted in Harry Potter and Order of Phoenix
where Voldemort delves into his subconscious and shows him the false visions using Legilimency .
