I believe completely in this real miracle technology

That doesn't look like he's hanging from a wire at all!

Cena_mark - 2016-04-15

That's cause he isn't. He's flying.

Russian propaganda.

That's a lot of lift. Where is the fuel? Where is the exhaust?

Helicopter + harness + digital wire removal.

misterbuns - 2016-04-16

VFX dude here.

rip the highest res .mp4 and go to 00:47.

isolate the blue channel. Gamma down by 25%

You can see the blurred out wires move through the powerlines he crosses under.

too busy to bust this open myself atm. maybe one of you can.

this is bullshit.

misterbuns - 2016-04-16


see how the powerline in the roto shape is blurred? That blur wipes through the powerline as he passes under it.

ive worked through a ton of wire removals in my time.

this is what it looks like.

I wouldn't waste my time, as this is legit. It sucks that we can't have nice things without the excessively cynical folks here ruining it.

Raggamuffin - 2016-04-16

your ivory tower science is no match for the power of my belief

ZackKnight - 2016-04-16

Way to ruin my hopes and dreams misterbuns.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2016-04-16

I just use my ENHANCE button. Works like a charm every time.

memedumpster - 2016-04-16

Whoa, easy there, buckaroo, you can also just notice there's no shadows when it lands on the grate. No need to burn the town down to pay a saloon tab, partner.

Misterbuns doesn't have science on his side. Merely some nitpicking about the video.

Oscar Wildcat - 2016-04-16

The claim is the fuel is stored in the backpack, visible both at the beginning worn by the fueler and then on the pilot in flight. A hose runs down his left leg, that is also visible, which supplies fuel to four turbine jets.

It could easily be fake. But given who is doing the work, it's certainly on the inside edge of possible. This isn't a practical design, as wearing the fuel tank alone qualifies this device as a suicide machine ( ok, about fourteen other things as well, but that really pops out at me ). But it's definitely possible.

Something for the naysayers: I couldn't find any IP related to this device. No granted patents or published apps. All of it was for the water jet device he is well known for.

Gmork - 2016-04-17

I want to believe.

fedex - 2016-04-17

Believe away, it's real.
