Hmm, This Could Be Useful

I can think of a few things that this would be handy for.  Especially if you could make it so cheap it’s disposable.

Jumping fences, on top of buildings, getting into places where getting people would be difficult or attract too much attention.  I still prefer the UAV though.  The UAV has even more possibilities, though this little bug does have some interesting prospects from a Red Team point of view.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do it’s thing.

    Is it shooting out compressed air to jump? I want a human sized one that I could ride in.

    • At 11 pounds I don’t think so.  Getting enough energy density without something to channel the air so it’s directed would be a bit difficult.  However you could load a mechanical spring mechanism effectively with gear reduction and then set it free.
