Experimental aircraft are not new. Balloons are not new. But one vehicle which could make conventional ballooning more enjoyable migth be a "sit-and-spin" type design. As envisioned a high powered nacelle with a 360 degree turnable propulsion propellor or exhuast stream would allow the pilot and passengers to turn a wheel in any direction of compass. If balance becomes a problem then slow down speed or have a sychonized or shafted dual motor or windvane poking out of top of conventional hot-air balloon. That is the gist of the idea. Under basket motor with wheel in basket.
