Flying Wing

Flying dude

This one is straight out of a James Bond movie or Batman script.

German researchers this week showed off their Gryphon personal
strap-on jet wing that lets the pilot scream through the air at about
135MPH. The Gryphon features a six-foot wing and hand-held rotary
controls for the rudder. The system includes onboard oxygen and helmet
that features a heads-up display.

Researchers say the final version of the flying wing will contain an
electronic system that will take care of some of the steering for the
pilot which today can be a little tricky, researchers say.
