Err...


WTF? So um... aerodynamics? How does this thing remain stable? Even the F117 "wobbly goblin" has wings along to help it's stack of computers keep it airborn.

I wonder how many billionaires already own one.

I personally would last approximately 3.589781 seconds in mid-air. If it were to be commercialized, imagine the trials and errors one would have to go through to master the technique? There would need to be a safety shield (perhaps made from airplane windows), as a standard helmet would just crumble into your skull.

It's no bicycle, that's for sure. I'd never let my S/O ride one. Nuh uh. Forget it.

I'll stick to automobiles.

Oh yes, now we are talking!!!

Imagen the sheer horror on the enemies faces as a swarm of these landed with a load of hyped up special forces on board..!!
The adrenaline rush from flying one of these must be awesome!

Sweet find dude!

The video is that of the VZ-1 flying platform manufactured by Hiller Helicopter. The first untethered flight took place on January 27 1955.

interesting, i also would guess its has a gyro for stabalization...like the segway. I for one wouldn't want to be standing on a small platform at 10,000 ft.!. What if your flying it at night and you look up at the stars and take a step back...kiss your ass goodbye.

When I heard that "shift your body weight" thing I instantly thought of Segway. I bet that one of the first ones to invest in something like this would be them.

That link to the image kept sending me to weird places.

Here is the page that the image is on. Flying Platforms

Hope that works for others.
