I remember the first time I saw a wingsuit in use on television (weirdly, I'm pretty sure it was on the History Channel). Even though I'd never ever in a million years put one on and jump, I still think they're just about the coolest thing mankind has ever invented. Does anything get a human closer to self-powered flight than a wingsuit; I mean besides jumping out of an airplane or helicopter and simply flapping your arms?
This new SSX
trailer shows off a wingsuit race - as if an average race in SSX
wasn't already bat-guano insane enough.
