It's easy to step in a pile of doo-doo, trust me I know. We try to get it right, but sometimes you only open your mouth to change feet.
Enter the 'quadcopter hammock'
When you watch this video it looks pretty good: some guy relaxing in a hammock flying under a four-propeller quadcopter. Coolest toy ever, right?
Watch this (then we'll discuss whether it's real...).
I'm usually the number-one most cynical jerk out there. Sometimes I don't believe it even if I can touch it, and I can almost touch this.
Does that guy look like an engineering guru to you? Even though the video is supposedly Dutch, it's all backwards to me. By the way Cetraal Beheer is a car insurance company, not an engineering firm.
I'm not a very good welder, but that guy has never held a welding rod in his life. One minute he's holding a large remote-control trying to lift off, the next he's flying and walking the dog using something that looks like his phone.
Okay, enough of the rant. It's probably all in fun anyway, and even if it is real how about just put a seat in it so we can fly over the pond, hover, and catch bass?
See you around, quadcopter hammock.
