Working an electric somewhat distributed propulsion general aviation aircraft. Sorta interesting design, sorta reminiscent of WingCo's BWB Atlantica

DARPA Announces VTOL X-Plane Phase 2 Design
LightningStrike, a spiritual follow-on to Excalibur, though the embedded fan wing needs to be compared to LEAPtech/SCEPTOR/S2 in terms of efficiency as the fanwing might be a little overbuilt.

Seems like a tiltrotor version of NASA's GL-10 electric distributed propulsion UAV prototype. The feathering prop trick is interesting, as it effectively creates a dual mode propulsion system, but the nature of beast means you have small disc rotor area with high disc loading in VTOL.

Apparently did some research work for NASA recently that found a N+2 design for a non-superconducting turboelectric propulsion that actually closed and was usable, roughly on par with an existing 737. Uses strut braced midspan turbogenerators feeding power to the inboard wing span, which is stuffed with wing internal embedded electric propulsors. Though the design used tech that while it exists today, exists outside of the aerospace realm so requires further development. They also have a superconducting N+3 design too.
