Human Flight

Well, not exactly, but pretty darn close.  What you see above, and in the video below, is a wingsuit.  A wingsuit allows skydivers, or base jumpers, to travel further horizontally before opening their chute.  How far you ask? They can go up to 2.5 meters forward for every 1 meter of descent.  That’s pretty crazy.  You’re still falling, but covering a lot of ground while doing it.  To see how amazing this is, check out the video below.

So, want to try it?  Of course you do!  But would you?
