Seriously - DeLorean? Anyone?

Hot on the heels of the invisibility cloak story (scroll down or click here) comes news that our troops may soon descend upon our enemies like the fearsome winged monkeys of Oz:


A new military parachute system which fits wings on soldiers could enable them to travel to 200 kilometres (124 miles) after jumping, Jane's Defence Weekly defence magazine said Friday. The system, which involves the development of new modular carbon-fibre wings, will mean that aircraft can drop parachutists from 30,000 feet (9,150 metres) into an area of operations without flying into a danger zone.




That looks Cool as Ice. I want to try.

I want my Jetsons outdoor dog track, and I want it NOW.
