The Human Drone

The Human Drone

When you think about it, a drone is basically a tiny helicopter with multiple blades, so why not build a huge drone capable of puling or lifting a human? Recently, Casey Neistat and his friends put together just that, then headed to Finland’s Santa Claus Village for a little snowboarding.

Droneboarding

Droneboarding

While the idea of being towed on your snowboard by a drone sounds like fun on paper, the reality is that today’s consumer flying machines simply don’t have enough power to pull a human at any decent speed. Still, we give the guys who thought of this an “A” for effort.
