It’s Not a Sexy Flying Vehicle But This Guy’s Slew of Drones Gets the Job Done!

By: | July 1st, 2015

What happens when technology, and specifically autonomous human transport cars, aren’t developing fast enough for you?

Simple, you take matters into your own hands, which is exactly what YouTube user Thorstin Crijns did in creating his 110-pound multicopter.

Crijns’s flying vehicle isn’t exactly revolutionary but is a neat idea that features a swarm of drones working all at once to lift him off the ground.

You have to start somewhere, and the coolest part is that it actually works, for a few seconds at least.

I don’t know how many companies have claimed they are developing a flying car prototype¬†only to never release footage of test flights.

While he may be strapped to a chair, surrounded by drones, I commend Thorstin Crijns on his flying vehicle and wish him the best of luck with his future projects.
