Ever notice how a piece of paper with a small width to length ratio drifts downwards slowly, due to it's high rotation speed?
If you strung thousands or millions of lightweight slightly plastic rectangles together. along with some little spinning plastic paper-copters and added them together, it could support a human being.

The large plastic paper helicopters can support an ounce or two each. And the flippy thing, being many hundreds of thousands of them, only need to support a miniscule weight.

The computations support this.

Let's take about 300 choppers and 500,000 paper rectangles.

150 lb man

300/16 = 18.75 lbs.

150-18.75 = 132.25 //Thats for the weight reduction due to the choppers

Now, with that weight reduction, each plastic rectangle only needs to support it's own weight + 0.0002645 pounds, which it can easily do.

We can do it with 50,000 of them, and it would STILL hold 150 lbs, each rectangle only needing to hold up 1/1000th of a pound.

With 500,000 of them, the ride is extremely gentle.

Of course, the choppers are deployed first, on strings, to slow the person down, then everything else comes out. It ought to be pretty interesting.
