The first test of a revolutionary wingsuit, which allows man “to fly” has been recently held in Austria. How? Thanks to a 15 kW electric motor that powers two 7.5 kW 25,000 rpm turbines.
The wingsuit, which allows flying at 300 km/h, is called Electrified Wingsuit and it is the fruit of a project funded by Bmw, whose protagonist is the designer Peter Salzman.
The test took place along the Alpine chain Die drei Brüder, where the man in the wingsuit jumped from a helicopter at three thousand metres of altitude.
At present, it is just a prototype, will it really be a possibility for all in the future?
