The AT Black Knight Transformer is the world’s first roadable, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft. It has the ability to transform from a VTOL helicopter to an off-road vehicle.

The Black Knight was designed as a rapid-response evac vehicle for wounded soldiers or cargo transport.
While the Black Knight won’t be starring in any big-budget Michael Bay movies anytime soon, it’s a very cool development.
