They stride majestically across the sands of time like some mutated Dali-esque vision on ornate, elongated metal legs, with their spout-like heads nodding and bells tinkling. Harbouring Sons of Sultans, Persian Princesses and the odd Assyrian assassin, each pot-like pod has a unique tale to tell, trading not only with herbs, spices and wordly goods but also of philosophies and technologies in a rich cultural tapestry of exchange, setting the world to rights over a really, really nice cup of tea.[from kickstarter]

A helicopter, or chopper, is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft and many forms of VTOL (Vertical TakeOff and Landing) aircraft cannot perform.[from wikipedia]
