A yacht with a wing for sales, new malaria research opportunities, the Army Corps of Engineers battles invasive alien fish in the Great Lakes, and NASA's got us covered for the most incredible personal vertical takeoff and landing aircraft imaginable. It's been a good week in the future, here on PopSci.com
(Get the details, and win the t-shirt, after the jump).

I enjoy your "This Week in the Future" segments. They are always interesting and just a good read. Keep up the good work.
Oh no flying fish guided by evil robot rocket boats!
heh sick image. Love this magazine & website.
This is the best shirt yet!
I jumped, I got the details, so I should win it...
This shirt is awesome!

i'll take NASA's vtol thinger. but it seems like it'll be quite inefficient but still fun. i guess the shirt will have to suffice for me though.
Hahah I love this
Hahah I love this

Cool shirt!!!! I'd love to win!

>>A yacht with a wing for sales,
I have little respect for a publication that allows errors in their headlines. Best go back to third grade and learn the difference between SALE and SAIL...
i was about to point out that specific error "dontbother"
hahaha flying yacht....
Cool t-shirt!!! Can I have it please!?
I want this tee-shirt!
On NASA's Puffin...
With ever increasing break-throughs on turbines, interesting that the illustrations utilizes exposed blades.
Would it not be more efficient and yielding better safety to use enclosed, counter rotating, high pitched blades to not only increase air volume displacement but also to minimize vibrations and aid in stabilizing during hover mode?
Regardless, very interesting concept in its unique split tail design making it usable to the average consumer. Like the design, love the idea. Anticipate further development with a strong push to manufacture.
I never win haha
does anyone ever win?
Free shirt? Thanks
A most excellent shirt.
I do not really like the Tshirt so count me out :).
