It may prove to be astronomically expensive and ridiculously dangerous but I still want one.

This is the world’s first manned mulitcopter and it was created by German engineers over at e-volo. The electronic device is radio controlled and operated by someone on the ground, whilst the passenger presumably holds on for dear life. 
Earlier this month the mulitcopter completed it’s first ever manned flight, staying in the air for a whole 1 minute and 30 seconds. That’s long enough to get me to the corner shop down the road, sadly not long enough to get me back again though. 
Who wouldn’t want to be strapped to an exercise ball, hovering a metre off the ground, in the middle of a dozen spinning blades, while someone else controls where you go?
