Warning!: This may cause severe lowering of the bottom jaw and prolonged staring! See this video of one of the most gobsmakingly brilliant flying machines ever – the Air-Swimmers.  Even though it’s of a much bigger size than your usual indoor aircraft, it’s surprisingly easy to fly, not to mention realistic. Using the remote, you have full control over your flying fish. So magical, you’d be forgiven if you thought you had just stepped into a giant fish tank. So how is it possible? Simple. It’s all thanks to the lighter than air gas (that also makes you talk funny) – Helium! Sadly it doesn’t actually come with any helium but it is readily available at some florists and all retail shops that sell helium balloons. Watch the video: Air Swimmers
