The Puffin: NASA's Personal Flying Machine
Apparently, NASA is exploring the possibility of making a 12-foot personal flying machine called Puffin. The video (below the jump) doesn't exactly capture the exhilaration of flight, and one doesn't think of puffins as being the most exciting birds, but I still want one. It's the jetpack of the future.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhpPhvWvLgkThe New York Times has more information on it.Via C-Monster.
