Relatively Safe Way To Get The Feeling Of Flying

StreetFlyer

Who doesn't want to fly?  We, humans, constantly try and get the feeling of flying.  We bungee jump, parasail, zip-line, base jump, sky dive, etc,  Most of these thrills are expensive and some are down right dangerous.  Granted the StreetFlyer bike pictured above isn't going to provide the same level of excitement, but it's a start.

The StreetFlyer, designed by Dr Carsten Mehring, is made of carbon fiber and gets you from a running position to a horizontal position similar to a hang-glider.  After you get to your desired speed you lift your legs and hang in the body harness.  Check out the StreetFlyer here.  Video after the break.
