human controlled multicopter

It was reported, that the worlds first manned flight of an electric multicopter has occurred.  This could have been quite messy for the human aboard this device if a malfunction had occurred.  German engineers at e-volo have created this device.  This device uses many mini helicopters to lift the passenger upwards into the sky.  Click the Read More to see the video. The passenger is tucked neatly in the center of these whirling blades attached to an excercise ball.  I guess while he is flying around on this device he can practice good posture at the same time.  The passenger was able to go for about 1 minute and 30 seconds before bounce down. 

Here is a video clip of the event:
