Sounds like a really cool concept. I remember hearing stories like this for the past twenty years though. Never believe them before seeing this though. Thanks for the vision mate.

I heard about this and then later read the story.  It was just phenomenal that he was willing to risk his life for this endeavor.  I wonder if it will ever become something the general public will be able to use.  On the other hand, the way some people drive cars.....never mind.  :)

I have heard about all this and I think that it is very cool! I shall never do such things personally. I think that such people are heroes.
