Why? If you can only lift 3 ft. off the ground, you could have more fun on a trampoline.

Some people have too much time on their hands. And money. I could see the concept with perhaps four bigger motors and blades, but 60 some tiny motors? Seemed like it was pretty difficult to control. Just sounds like a angry hornet's nest!

Ya I think it more the fact that I can do it, I guess with 57 motors he does have some redundancy. I also bet it will go a lot higher than 3', but that's all I would go myself in that contraption.

In general terms a larger rotor is going to be more efficient than a smaller one. Sure you gain some redundancy and stability with multiple rotors but it comes at a huge weight penalty. Sitting on top of a massive battery looks like it could get toasty quick too. Still, I'd take it for a spin.
