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!
The StreetFlyer Provides the Illusion of Flight On the Road
1. Illusion of Flight Transportation - Developing transport vehicles that provide the experience of flying without the need for a pilot's license.
2. Alternative Sports Equipment - Creating sports equipment that is safer and more accessible while still providing the thrill and excitement of extreme sports.
3. Carbon-fiber Innovation - Investing in research and development for carbon-fiber materials to create unique and functional products.
1. Sports and Recreation - The sports and recreation industry can benefit from introducing new alternative equipment such as the StreetFlyer to attract more users.
2. Transportation - The transportation industry can create more eco-friendly and exciting transportation options by exploring the application of gliding technology to bicycles and other road transportation vehicles.
3. Materials Science - Carbon-fiber innovation can be applied in various industries such as the automotive, aerospace, and even the fashion industry for more durable and lightweight products.
