I recently had a dream of flying. I was given a pair of wings that looked like they came out of the movie “Tron”, and flew over a lake with only the movement of my body to determine my directions and altitude. Then I woke up and found reality had asserted itself once again. I couldn’t soar over the waves at the mere thought.
But a Swiss man, Yves Rossy has made dreams possible and made a personal jet pack that is controlled directly from body movements. Don’t believe me check out a short documentary on an early prototype on YouTube.
He’s a commercial pilot and skydiver so for he me the joy of speeding along with only my own body guiding the way will still not be possible for me but that’s okay. I can live vicariously knowing that it can be done.
