The BMW Designworks and i branches have been responsible for more than a few great innovations over the years–and we’re not just talking about cars. We’re talking about camper trailers built in collaboration with The North Face, a gaming mouse built with Thermaltake, a carbon fiber racing wheelchair and now, the Peter Salzmann Electrified Wingsuit you see here. In case you’re unfamiliar with Peter Salzmann, he’s a wingsuit pilot / basejumper / skydiver / stuntman / sport scientist out of Austria that clearly, based on his credentials, knows a thing or two about what it takes to perform death-defying feats. He teamed up with the BMW group to create the world’s first electric system for a wingsuit that brings human’s desire to fly a little closer to reality. The Electrified Wingsuit functions much like a drop and glide flying squirrel suit except it also packs two impellers each producing high power output to make perform more like Iron Man than you’d be familiar with. Multiple years of work, research, development and testing have gone into this project–that’s clearly already functional based on the videos–so we can only imagine the ceiling for the project in a few years once it reaches production.
