Go Jump Out Of A Plane!

Wired 11.09: Wingman

This .. is .. cool. Strap some delta wings and a parachute on and go do a bit of personal flying. From the article, “…carbon-fiber contraption that lets skydivers shoot above the clouds at 186 mph for two exhilarating minutes. That’s quadruple the air time of the usual free fall and almost twice the speed of the world’s fastest bird, the spine-tailed swift.”

Now all I have to do is get the guts up to go skydiving enough to feel proficient enough to try this.

Probably won’t happen, but it looks like lots of fun.
