CREEP system, pg 26, Feb SKYDIVING, hoax? Can't Post

Is this system for real or a hoax? Wireless controlled cutters for main 3 ring loops, a wristwatch that can command a cutaway or a reserve activation, gyro sensors to determine angle of attack etc etc etc. Someone spent a lot on a full pg color ad.

OMG with the cypress radio issues can you imagine a remote cut away system. Flying along and you get cross talk at 50' and get a cut away. THAT WOUDL BE A MALFUNCTION.

You know Marcus has really made it hard for anyone to ever patent anything like this and that might be good or bad, depending on how you see it. He has made a public disclosure of a number of possibly patentable inventions and unless he applies for a patent within a year, it's likely to be public domain. Sure, its a spoof, and some of the ideas are 100%whacko, but there are a couple of very clever ideas here. Full page color ad with convincing graphics, for fun only... Hats off to the master skydive media jester, Marcus Antebi.
