We've featured Geo before on WWWN, when he published an article on wingsuit aerodynamics, his area of study.

  1. No no no! Damn. I was really hoping for that guy to shed some scientific light on what is otherwise a mostly trial and error design process.

    A real shame...

  2. Yea, it is a real shame! If you watch the video I just posted on his presentation at Zurich.Minds, it becomes apparent he was really doing a lot of interesting things with the right people, like Visa with his jet engines.
