Get To the Aero-Mobile!

A team of engineers apparently forgetting that the world still desperately needs fully functional sexbots wasted precious sexbot development time and scored the $250,000 AHS Sikorsky Prize for  building a human powered helicopter..
On June 13th, 2013, the AeroVelo Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter captured the long standing AHS Sikorsky Prize with a flight lasting 64.1 seconds and reaching an altitude of 3.3 metres.
 And thank God too because it's not a minute to soon.  Now maybe we can come up with a way to power it that somehow doesn't require humans. Maybe a team of mules? Or dare to dream? - even that internal combustion engine we've been hearing so much about?  $250,000 is a lot of money and now they can all buy reliable modern transportation and they won't have to ride to work on one of those bikes with the big wheel in front. Of course it'll also buy a lot of spatz, and top hats too in case you've dirtied yours while beating your servants. At least now the mail deliverer can finally get my wireless telegram to Burma in reasonable time, and not traveling by steam ship means they won't have to worry about being torpedoed by U-boats, or attacked by sea monsters along  the way.
