Man can’t fly but with the help of 54 drone propellers and an umbrella to protect the ol’ noggin, man can kind of fly. This mad genius made what he calls, The Swarm, which is essentially a lawn chair strapped to some metal bars and 54 counter-rotation propellers and six grouped control channels with Hobbyking stabilization that can achieve flight.

It’s a manned super drone! And it these test flights, it looks like a crazy fun ride. Supposedly it can lift nearly 360 pounds into the air. I don’t know about that because it totally looks like it’s at the mercy of the wind.
