Hang Glider and Bike Mash-Up: The StreetFlyer (video)

Not really sure what to make of this... 
It's what one would imagine if a Hang Glider and a Bike hooked up and had a baby... 

-check out the video below. 

The StreetFlyer is perfect for those who always wanted to hang glide, but is also afraid of heights. The rider basically straps themselves into a harness and glides down inclined paths via wheels and gravity. There aren't any pedals for uphill or level areas, instead the rider has to put their feet down to run the contraption around...
The transition from running into a flying position is facilitated using a body harness that is attached to the structure.

Question: would you consider getting one of these...??
