While "the electric multicopter" sounds like the sex trick your sister taught us, we assure you there's nothing dirty about it. The device is a perfectly legit, non-sexual piece of machinery that debuted in Germany last month, and looks to be the future of personal aviation.

About the only disadvantage of the multi-copter is how nerdy it makes you look. While controlling it, you squat uptop an exercise ball-looking thing while diddling a joystick to make it go whichever direction you choose.

This beast, pictured in the video below, is versatile and resilient. Enemies can shoot out four of its 16 motors and it will keep on truckin.'
