Behold the World’s First Human-Powered Helicopter

"The team behind 'Gamera' (named after the flying turtle from the famous Japanese Kaiju flick) is fighting to win the Sikorsky award, which has remained unclaimed for over three decades. In order to nab the $250,000 prize, competitors must create a machine that is able to hover for a minute and reach a height of ten feet, all while staying [in a] 10-meter box. Gamera is made of ultra-light components, and though its wingspan measures more than 100 feet, it only weighs about 80 pounds."
