You may remember some of our previous posts on the pedal powered helicopter in which students from the University of Maryland created and flew just such a device.  Now a much more compact electric version could be carrying humans by the end of the year!  The video depicts a dummy aloft the cycle controlled by RC.  At 22olbs. and far from compact it may not be practical for your average commuter, but it sure is a cool way to catch some sweet air.  Check out the full story over at CNet.

Human powered flight has been done before close to 30 years ago. Check out the Gossamer Condor
