Dandelion, bring my dream closer.
In 2065, the urban population is keeping increasing, public sports space in big cities become seriously insufficient. The intelligent vertical flying sports center, Dandelion, collects sporting demands via terminal APP, travels between different districts in different periods correspondingly, maximizing its functions for citizens, besides only capturing very limited ground space sometimes. The energy for flying and suspending is provided by high-efficient solar panels.
Three rotatable and joinable zones on the top are for competitive sports (such as basketball and football), mechanical arms help to adjust the playground and to provide more interacting activities, LED surface and surrounding speaker system provide more visual and acoustical pleasure; gym (including general equipment and training course area) and suspending swimming pool in the middle; curved playground for X-sports on the bottom. In addition, cloud social networking platform is introduced into the APP, ranking system stimulates motivation, the popular and top-ranking matches could be recorded by drones and broadcasted, forum system promoting people sharing exercise experience. Altogether, leading a new healthy sporting life style.
