View ‘Santa’ fly-by-drone

Move over, Rudolph.

In this beautiful four-minute video, YouTube personality Casey Neistat shows viewers that the next big thing for drones would be human transport.

Dressed as a modern-day extreme sport version of Ole St. Nick and ride a snowboard instead of a sleigh, Neistat takes the viewer on a holiday magic carpet ride through a city, and on the other side of the winter sky. In particular, in place of the “eight reindeer” the drone’s propellers pull Neistat a rooftop terrace, by the hustle and bustle of the high-fiving spectators, and over a series of hills before him in the air.

“Nobody in the world sells a drone that can lift a man,” explained the team in the video’s opening. “So we built our own.”
