Buckminster Fuller in Front of the Fly’s Eye Dome and the Dymaxion Car
About the Fly’s Eye Dome:
“The Fly’s Eye domes are designed as components of a ‘livingry’ service. The basic hardware components will produce a beautiful, fully equipped, air-deliverable house that weighs and costs about as much as a good automobile. Not only will it be highly efficient in its use of energy and materials, it also will be capable of harvesting incoming light and wind energies.“ – R. Buckminster Fuller
About the Dymaxion Car:
Patented in 1937, and conceived as an ‘omni-directional transport system’, Fuller’s Dymaxion car was intended to fly, jump-jet style, when suitable alloys and engines became available. Three cars were produced in his lifetime.
