    Looks like fun. But its still not "the future" until I get my flying car.

    ETA: wonder what he could do with a bit longer wingspan. And...all he's really doing is falling/gliding, maybe some powered-lifts. He had to have a helicopter to take off. Ah, well, the Wright brothers only flew something like 500 feet that first successful flight. "The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step."
