The ultralite project was like a
scene from a science fiction movie. I started building a man-carrying
robotic flying machine along with the robot project.
We never actually flew the vehicle
remotely, without a pilot, but we acquired the knowledge to do so. The
robotic ultralite was a natural step upward from the robotic vehicle
I made a pitch to Apple Computer many
years ago when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were still there.
The Apple marketing people loved
the idea but the Apple legal department hated it.
