Hirobo is known for its wide range of of radio-controlled helicopter models. Recently, the RC model company created a life-sized one-man electric helicopter that is fully functional. The compact helicopter is silent, lightweight and sleek in appearance. To operate it, you simply strap the gadget on your back and control it with the directional joystick on the side.

The GEN H-4 helicopter can reach speeds of up to 100km/h (62 mph), and can fly for 30 minutes in one charge. It was revealed at an expo in Nagoya, Japan, and plans to be sold for 30 million yen (around $375,000 USD).
