Engineers in Romania have invented a genuine disc-shaped flying machine that can move in any direction.

Take a quick glance at footage of the All-Directional Flying Object (or ADIFO) in action and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is some sort of elaborate fake or a clip from a sci-fi movie.
As it happens however, this remarkable machine is the real deal – an actual fully functioning flying saucer that can move in any direction, just like the objects described by countless UFO witnesses.
This one though didn’t come from space – it was designed by inventor Razan Sabie and his partner Iosif Taposu – a former senior scientist at Romania’s National Institute for Aerospatiale Research.
“The aerodynamics behind this aircraft [are] the result of more than two decades of work,” said Sabie.
Like a quadcopter, ADIFO uses four ducted fans to handle “take-off, landing, and slow speed maneuvers” while two jet engines provide it with some serious horizontal thrust.
A pair of lateral thrust nozzles also enable it to turn quickly and push itself sideways.
Interestingly, Sabie maintains that the craft’s disc shape makes it ‘natural born’ for supersonic flight.
