If you’re like me you’ve had that itch at one time or another to hover high in the high sky.  If you’ve got $60,000 that itch can now be scratched.  Japanese inventor Gennai Yanagisawa has built a 165-lb helicopter, which might be the world’s smallest.  It’s small in foot print too since it doesn’t utilize a rear rotator blade, and instead opts for a dual blade setup which counters the spinning effect.  The first demonstration flight will occur May 25th in Vinci, Italy to pay homage to da Vinci.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
