Jeb Corliss posted this video on YouTube of his wingsuit experience. This invention practically allows ones to fly by jumping off of a cliff, or something similar. Another technology that really enhances the experience is the use of Go Pro cameras. This allows the viewer to see the experience almost exactly to how the person actually "flying" does.
