Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is a Studio Ghibli classic and that means it had some of the most imaginative inventions. The jet-powered wind glider is somewhere at the top of the list but you’d never expect to see it in real life. I mean, I don’t have any type of degree in physics or nothing like that, but you know that shit ain’t staying up in the air. Luckily, we got people who don’t take kindly to things as logic and they set out to recreate one. It’s not an exact replica, but it’s prety close, and it flies! Salute.

They won’t be mass producing these but the gliders they built will be on exhibit until September 16th at Main Gallery of Arts in Chiyoda in Tokyo. Who’s going? You can get on top of one and pretend you flying towards those massive insects from the movie, bringing a message of peace and love of course.
