Do you remember playing with little toy helicopters? The type you would spin with your hands and watch fly for a glorious 5 seconds?
Do you remember feeling the wind from the blades caress your child-like face, and revel in the whirling hum it made, like some caught tropical fly?
And do you remember thinking that if only you could attach a robotic monkey to it, you could one day terrorize the world and become a shipping magnate?
Was that just me?
Well, now my dream has been realized with this concept delivery-bot by Matthias Schmiedbauer.
The Cargonaut is "a humanoid flight robot, comes to your current position to relieve you of your loads. After placing your bags or luggage in one of the publicly available sky boxes, Cargonaut delivers within minutes to a chosen destination."
Like a cybernetic flying monkey from a time traveling L. Frank Baum, who carried around the works of Syd Mead in a emerald-crystal optical parasite.
I want one.
And I should do more strange posts on this blog.
