Someone claims to have engineered a flying full-size version of Nausicaa's flying wing. Eh, I'm not convinced. Looks like they've built a large kite which can carry a human being, but I betcha if you dropped that towline & let it glide, you'd see that sucker flip end for end until the pilot fell or the vehicle hit the dirt. It looks like it's getting all of its pitch and yaw axis stability from the towline.

Via Chizumatic.
