I Had NO Idea This Thing Was Real

Do want!

I'd seen this thing in some TV shows but I'd always thought it was a special effect. 

The Williams WASP was designed to meet an Army  from the 1970's.  It actually fulfilled all the requirements but twas not adopted as the Army beleatedly decided that the requirements were ill-considered. 

Good grief!  With a range of 30 miles it's really not all that much more impractical than a motorcycle for commuting. It can fly above traffic and the fact that it flies means it's significantly less dorky than a Segway.

This is the future we were denied!

Someone must make this happen.

1 Whee!

Wonder how easy or difficult it was to control.  Also, how noisy it was.  Those are usually the big problems with devices like this.

2 It's Dick Tracy's one-man Air Car!

It probably is ungodly loud, and melts asphalt when it lands.  Those sound like selling points to me.
