The StreetFlyer Provides the Illusion of Flight On the Road

I understand that some may be too scared to hang glide, so I'm here to offer an alternative: the StreetFlyer.

This crazy contraption created by Dr. Carsten Mehring is essentially a carbon-fiber bicycle that gives you the illusion of flight. Instead of pedaling, you start by pushing off, and as it gains momentum, you place yourself into a horizontal gliding position as you cruise down the streets. Imagine how insanely fun riding the Streetflyer down a San Francisco street would be!
