Time for a new sticky. This is a new introduction for the blog to try to restate the goals and give a little progress report of the last years work.
First, the ultimate goal is the facilitation of the fulfillment of a dream that mankind has had since before we could write things down. I'm talking about gaining the ability to fly like a bird. That phrase is key, like a bird.
It is my opinion based in personal experience and a growing knowledge of current technology, that it is possible right now to reverse engineer the structure and function of large birds in order to create a man carrying craft that has all of the flight capability of a large soaring bird and that is controlled by a pilot in ways that mimic the control and precision of those birds.
Simply put, I'm proposing the construction of a wearable winged exoskeleton. In the posts of this blog, you will find articles describing the kinds of technology, in prosthetics, man magnifier exoskeletons, computer capabilities, materials and power systems that can be adapted to create what I call for lack of a better name, the Man Bird™.
