Bad ass indeed. Probably the closest thing to actual flight humans will be able to achieve, at least until they can invent some kind of ultralightweight material that is also incredibly stiff, yet can be flexed enough to control a prolonged glide. Like a flightsuit with long, stiff wings you can slip your arms into. Mountainous updrafts, anyone?

Cool as heaven. How long until we see extreme sports style competions with this? Flips, skimming the tops of trees or structures, stalls? Imagine buzzing your next garden party with this and dropping in for a good time.
