    1. This reminds me of the Ninja Turtles. Also ugly and this is really functional?

    2. Possibly for HALO jumping, though it looks cumbersome. Looks unpowered.

    3. this is waaaaay cooler than parachuting in somewhere

    4. Little problem with the surface area to weight ratio. I’m thinking the final result will look more like a hang glider in size. Also, what happens when you drop below your stall speed? Either that thing deploys a parachute or the guys going to have to hit the ground running at like 50 miles per hour.

    5. most likely unpowered. i would guess that this would allow someone to jump further from the target, and using this they could guide their fall better

    6. man, I was going to come in here and bitch about how apparently no one read the article this came from, but it wasn’t even in the post. If I remember correctly, this is for high altitude jumps, and gives you about 30 miles of glide space before you pull your shoot.

      • Well that makes more sense. Not that modern parachutes don’t give you lots of precision landing anyway, but I can understand a few insertions that would benefit from these. Special ops, stuff like that.

    7. No crash landings…unless you want to breakyourneck/paraplegic!
