We've seen quadrocopters do some spectacular things by virtue of motion sensors, gyroscopes and clever programming, but it never quite occurred to us that a flesh-and-blood individual would try to ride one. That just happened in Germany last week, when a company called E-Volo launched their sixteen-propeller multicopter from a grassy field, hovering for one minute and thirty seconds before safely descending. The team's calling it the first manned electric multicopter flight in history, and though George de Bothezat might scoff at the idea, it's definitely a contraption worth watching. Luckily for you, the team taped the whole thing. Video below.
