"The 'Airbike' is made of nylon but, according to EADS, is strong enough to replace steel or aluminium and requires no conventional maintenance or assembly. It is 'grown' from powder, allowing complete sections to be built as one piece; the wheels, bearings and axle being incorporated within the 'growing' process and built at the same time. Because it can be built to rider specification, it requires no adjustment."

I had the chance to see my favourite sci-fi movie last week in Vienna in the Filmmuseum and I really was impressed. Such a poetic and fascinating cinematic experience is rare and I really hope, that they will continue the journey which was started by Philipp K. Dick in the late seventies in his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? . This short story was filmed by Ridley Scott in 1982 and was a milestone in film history.
It is a pity that Scott apparently stopped working on the fifth part of "Alien", maybe to produce another fancy hollywood blockbuster.
So lets hope that they find a reasonable budget to produce "Blade Runner 2"!
