DAVID:
(SIGHING) So, we're

really doing this, huh?

Right now?

CHRIS:
Yup.

Okay, we got to

present this properly.

DAVID:
Where should I go?

CHRIS:
Come to the right.

DAVID:
To the right?

CHRIS:
Come on.

(PIGEON COOING)

Okay?

Hi, my name is...

(LAUGHING)

Hi. My name is David Raskin

and I'm applying for the

MIT Physics Fellowship.

What I've developed

is an intelligent

propulsion experiment

which allows me to...

Um...

I think I'm getting

into that too early.

I should talk about

them more, right?

I first became interested

in the sciences, uh...

No, that was not

the way to start.

What if I walk at you like...

CHRIS:
Can you just go?

All right, watch.

Hi. My name is David Raskin.

CHRIS:
Take it down,

like, four notches, Seacrest.

What?

CHRIS:
Come on!

I'd like to introduce you

to my engineers,

Adam Le and Quinn Goldberg,

and it's my sister,

Christina Raskin,

behind the camera.

Would you not...

Hold on one second.

I'll hold it

so you can point...

Dude,

you're distracting him.

What if it looks

like you built it?

Close your eyes.

No, it's not gonna

look like I built it.

All right. Like that?

(MACHINE BEEPING)

Let's put this up, Chris.

Okay, the smartphone's

connected to the Wi-Fi. Ready.

QUINN:
Wait, wait, wait.

(MUSIC PLAYING ON CELL PHONE)

(ALL LAUGHING)

DAVID:
Beginning

to lift the craft.

Take the controller.

I want you to notice

these marks on my fingers.

All right, cutting off

power now.

(MUSIC STOPS)

(MUSIC RESTARTS)

Dude, you're

getting into MIT!

These marks on

my hand are read

by the modified motion sensor

on the computer.

It allows my hands to

manipulate this craft

with uncanny precision.

Oh!

That's nuts!

The motion sensors are routed

through my smart phone

with an 802.11g,

64 gigahertz wireless.

Chris, watch out.

Coming your way.

Whoo! Ta-da!

Yes!

All right, let's

take this thing

to its max altitude!

Come on, let's go!

ADAM:
Oh, shit!

DAVID:
Grab the computer.

CHRIS:
Go, go, go!

Okay, so, unlike

other static systems,

my algorithm tracks gestures

while the operator is moving.

Elevation, 140.

151, David. 170!

DAVID:
It should

have a vertical reach

of about 250 feet.

(CELL PHONE RINGING)

QUINN:
What is that?

Is that my phone?

ADAM:
David,

I think I lost signal.

DAVID:
What do you mean

you lost signal?

ADAM:
The call's

interrupting the Wi-Fi.

Who could possibly

be calling you right now?

Everyone you know

is standing right here!

ADAM:
It's not

connecting, David.

DAVID:
Guys,

it's not responding!

It's not responding.

CHRIS:
I don't

see it anymore!

ADAM:
It's gone.

It's dropping!

DAVID:
Guys, run!

QUINN:
Which way do I go?

Which way?

DAVID:
Go! Quinn, run!

QUINN:
Oh, shit!

(PHONE CONTINUES RINGING)

(MACHINE CRASHING)

(ALL GRUNTING)

(GROANING)

(CROWS CAWING)

(PANTING)

The experiment

was a complete success.

Thank you for your

consideration, MIT.

KATHY:
Christina, I need you

to put that laundry away.

CHRIS:
Yes.

I will do it later, I promise.

David's daily ritual.

Checking for

the letter, day 37.

(CAR ENGINE STARTING)

(CHRIS LAUGHING)

Quinn. Yeah, it came.

No, I don't know if I got

in yet, but it's really...

It's big.

All right, well,

come over then. Come on!

CHRIS:
Go show her.

David, go show her.

Christina, I need you

to put that laundry away.

Yeah, I will.

And I'm not gonna

tell you again. Oh, good.

Can you see this stain here?

No, Mom...

I got two

job interviews today.

Mom, look, look. It came.

Oh, my God!

Christina, give me that.

It's a family moment.

ADAM:
Wait for me,
