I got a heads-up the other day from (Naudin’s) Yahoo Lifters Group about a new patent:
Various methods, apparatuses, and systems in which an electric-energy lifting panel levitates a user secured to the electric-energy lifting panel. The electric-energy lifting panel includes a first capacitive plate and a second capacitive plate having different geometric dimensions to generate a net-directional force. An ion conditioner ion enhances air around the first capacitive plate and the second capacitive plate.
Sorta looks like an electrical jet-pack, don’tcha think?
