The glider was not human powered it was run off the side of a hill by a human. Gliders, sailplanes, etc, are not human powered, they are either gravity powered or powered by updrafts in the atmosphere (making them ultimately solar powered).

The last hand glider looks like a practical way to fly, I'm terrified of heights but I'd like to give that one a try regardless.

3:40...helicopter...to me it looks like those "pilots" of the helicopter are concentrating too much on peddling and cranking with their hands. Not sure they can focus on the requirement of staying in the 10-meter box because they're focusing so much on peddling. I'm no engineer, but do something with the gear or pulley ratio to make it where you peddle less and get the same rotation result...let the pilot steer the thing more and not worry about peddling so much. When it shows them peddling you can see they have small gears at their feet and hands which means they're doing more work! They have to peddle harder which after the one minute is going to wear them out. Like an 18 speed bicycle gear set up, but bigger...it's easier to go uphill in 1st gear than 18th...but if you are on level ground in 18th you go faster! I'm guessing they are running two propellers with hands and two with feet...which in my mind will cause drifting because you'll get different speeds at different rotors that way. Your legs will overpower your arms! Run all four rotators with the legs if possible. Since it moves side to side easily with a little tid bit of wind, the pilot should have a fan in front of them they can turn or steer with. Drifting left, turn the fan left so it blows the helicopter to the right...make it capable of 360 degrees turning..or even make it where the pilot can lean a certain direction slightly to steer it, like a helicopter's nose dipping down to move forward...lean back to back up...lean left to turn left, etc.. Their seats look stationary in this video. I'm thinking main cranks with feet (if possible)...left hand has separate crank for steering fan...and steer knob with right hand. Almost like an F-16 Falcon cockpit..use all legs/hands for something, not just cranking. Fuel left hand (fan crank in this scenario), steer right hand, use feet for power (in this scenario) instead of rudders/tail. These guys are using all four for cranking. Where's the steering? It's late...I'm just blabbing and I think too much...time for bed! This would be fun to try though even if I didn't win the prize money!

#vertiwalk What's the throughput? How many people fit in there per shaft & per floor. How long does it take to strap in? How long does it take and how much energy does it take to reach floor 10, 20, 40 or 80? In short: how practical is it instead of building stairs on the same footprint?

If I were given the money I could win that $250k by building a human powered helicopter not a quad or tri copter. Just a single axle quad blade copter. I've got blueprints and each simulation has run successfully. So it'll stay with in 10 meters easily as it's 5.2 meters LxW. The downforce and any light to moderate wind draft etc won't be able to move it, nor will while powering it. The best part of my design is it can stay in flight for 10 minutes maybe longer with a fit 75 kg operator. One of 10 secrets is rigidity.

Okay, this is "Part 2" & you're starting it off with the same thing you had in "Part 1" - namely, the "vertiwalk?" Again?!? Um... why? Not a good beginning, folks! That "ETA" bike sounds really cool. Just one thing, though. It needs some kind of retractable 'training wheels' for unassisted starts & stops. Now, the human-powered helicopter is AWESOME!!! Love it! The "Ruppert' hang-glider-sail-plane thing sounds really cool, too. tavi.

No. 5. Completely pointless, less energy involved in climbing a staircase, you don't need to lift the weight of the mechanism.

Space is not becoming scarce, we will not be building upward... hilarious. Critical think much? Next time you fly, look down... all you see is millions of empty square miles. We have more room than we'll ever need.

And you have the means to supply power, food, sanitation, sewage, and clean water, and transportation to all that land, without compromising the food supply, having unsound, unfit footing, or disrupting the local ecology so much that human life on earth would be uninhabitable? Do tell us how, and show your math, for every 2 acer lot. you will be a world wide hero. Otherwise we are running out of space, quickly.

BioClone 2 months ago
some concepts could make a huge difference with a sighly different point of view... that elevator doesnt seem neat, but I can imagine this principle could be used on buillding design... some buildings could have just in front of the windows a couple of rails what could allow to be mounted such kind of "elevator" in case of need, soulld be interesting for maintenance, cleaning or emergencies (like a fire) giving chances to reach or leave places by unexpected routes.

The last one is NOT human powered but can be human launched. Once launched you need to slope soar it or catch a thermal to stay aloft. Now the Gossamer Albatross that crossed the English Channel was truly human powered.

Bobby b : then the application is the pioneering notion I guess. Many things exist but we've never applied it to the right situation. Like hundreds of years ago the shovel already existed in China yet they somehow never had the spoon yet for dining, only chopsticks. Concepts exist yet they may have been missing the proper application (but I kinda see your point how vid footage looks like they just invented it). Gotta go MacGyver on the world, think outside the box with all given tools

Paul Polpiboon

Paul Polpiboon
Paul Polpiboon 2 months ago
Leif Vejby : I did not state again they don't exist since your EXACT question is "GLIDERS DON'T EXIST?" I never said that Gliders do not exist, not even once. Copy Paste where I state this, go ahead. Of course you can't. You giving examples of alternate power sources for the glider doesn't change the fact that you're statement "Gliders are NOT HUMAN POWERED" is WRONG. You can give me several examples of Asian People too; A Korean, A Taiwanese, A Japanese, A Chinese, etc and you would STILL be wrong in your statement "People are not black". It ain't rocket science here, son.
Leif Vejby
Leif Vejby 2 months ago
So, you are again saying, that they don't exist, right? Not all "glider" are human powered, some are powered by cars, some by wires, some by aircraft and some by engines, of which some are electrically driven and some are driven by combustion of hydrocarbons.

Ever heard of stairs?
FramePerfect 7 months ago
The vertiwalk is cool, but it'll never catch on for one simple reason: maintenance. A simple wooden staircase can last literally hundreds of years with minimal maintenance as long as the wood is kept away from moisture and termites, and in the event that it does break, the odds of someone getting seriously injured are low. Something like the vertiwalk would need constant maintenance checkups by a professional or a highly informed owner lest it become a safety hazard. If these became widespread, how long do you think it would take for someone to die using one? 5 years? 10 if they're lucky? Not to mention the numerous injuries that would occur before that.

The starting energy for any glider (paraglider, hang glider...) comes from it having been transported to a certain height, so as long as you walk up the mountain carrying it, it's human-powered (you're only recovering that energy you expanded on the way up)

Very nice! I would like to share two very important quotes with you that i try to share with as many people as i can. Jesus said “if you do not repent (turn away from sin: lying, stealing, getting drunk or high, pre-marital sex, adultery, hate, murder, suicide, witchcraft, homosexuality, using God's name in vain, praying to statues/pictures/paintings or anyone else but God, etc) you will all likewise perish (eternal fire)." Jesus also said "no one comes to the Father except through me (no one else). If i steal a car once i will go to jail, likewise God warns that if we sin once we will go to the lake of fire, if we lie, steal, fornicate, commit adultery, get drunk or high, etc just once, but its not God's will that we go to Hell. God became a human being in Jesus to take the blame for us, he died, went to Hell, then arose from the dead. We broke God's law and Jesus paid our fine but God requires us to do two things besides just asking him to forgive us; #1 we must turn away from everything that is a sin (Jesus is not a license to keep on sinning) and #2 we must put out trust in Jesus, and then God will forgive us. He will dismiss our case and wash away all our sins as if we had never sinned. If you haven't yet turned away from sin and put your trust in Jesus, please do it today, you may not have tomorrow. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I care about where you will spend eternity.
