Him and the italian company Proger will work on this. Bladeless microturbine power generator is interesting though

Some sort of octocopter that is also using the oversize rotors as a kind of autogyro for lift as a replacement for real wings, as a format differentiator from quadplanes

People pod octocopter, functionally a UAV drone though. FIxed pitch props makes control hard at that rotor size though, right? Electric, with no range extender, so that battery won't last that long...

Working on the octocopter HorseFly, a cargo delivery UAV which is supported by a delivery truck (mobile base/mothership), providing last meter (rather than last mile) delivery capability.

Pairing a delivery drone with a delivery truck (which operates like a mobile resupply base) does sorta make sense, to overcome range limitations.

HorseFly 'Octocopter' Primed to Fly the Future to Your Front Door
Interesting hybrid platform, using a truck mobile base with the octocopter UAV providing last 10m delivery from the truck. I could see this being attractive to existing package delivery services with an existing truck fleet.

VTOL Dynamics
Appears to be working on a tilting rotor quadcopter (technical an octocopter since it uses a rotor above and below the motor), allegedly a hybrid base, with power supplied by some sort of engine/generator unit feeding to the four motors.
