Comments on VertiPod From Air Buoyant: Segway Of The Sky
This is a classic single-person flying machine; you steer it by leaning where you want to go. (Read the complete story)

"The VertiPod also reminds me of the little one- or two-man stand-up hover pods from Jonny Quest, the 1960's series.

"The VertiPod is more like the Hiller Flying Platform. At about 55 years old, not exactly new technology. http://www.hiller.org/flying-platform.shtml http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmSCyy0_OX4"
