It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s an RcSuperhero!
The Ponoko connection may be tenuous, but I’m going for it anyway. These remote controlled flying people are simply awesome.
The above clip was put together as a part of a viral marketing campaign for the film Chronicle, but don’t let that deter you if you’re keen to take to the skies yourself.
Downloadable PDF plans are available from RcSuperhero that you can send to your favourite laser cutting service; or you can get a head start and buy the laser cut foam, sub-structure and various parts in kit form. And then what? Simply whack in the required electronics and soon you’ll be launching your own human-shaped glider into the sky.
It must be quite a sight to behold in the flesh. What a brilliant idea.
