This blimp will be solar powered. A silent and slow ride from one place to another. The folks over at Turtle Airships, a Spanish company committed to delivering to the world a clean way to travel across continents, recognized the prospects and has been working on the design for over a year now. The company is now building a genuine solar-powered prototype that is expected to demonstrate the viability of solar energy to potential funders.

To add to this, the company will be attempting to fly a remote controlled model to get some video of the blip in action. Hopefully that will pocket an extra few million dollars to develop the actual prototype.
