  1. Interesting. I, too, would rather be a bird, but I do think there would be something cool about slipping through the ocean depths with ease, plying a silent world that many don’t realize exists. And then I’d meet a great white…. 😑

    For a while people have been flying these little radio controlled four-blade devices known as “quadcopters”. But very recently someone hooked up a pair of video goggles to the camera on board and flew one as if they were actually on board it. The sensation is like flying as a bird, or more precisely like flying one of the pod racers in Star Wars. It’s called FPV (first-person view). Here’s a video (complete with crashes!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsxyV-kgfio

  7. It seems like a weighted survey to me. While I’m terrified of the sea, if they’d asked if I wanted to be a bird or a whale, I might have thought twice.

  11. Why would I choose to regress to a lower life form? I’m looking to move up, not down.
    Leave it to the NYT.
