Default VTOL canard pikkie

Anybody know anything about this widget? There is a suggestion of a t-tail so it is only 'sorta' a canard...

Fixed & spatted main gear looks interesting. The canopy is set a long way behind the strakes, would be a challenge to get into it, (if you were game).

I'm more curious about the powerplant(s). There doesn't seem to be a lot of space for horsepower or large fuel tanks. The overall design intrigues me though.
