Unscramble the Blue Letters

I came with a plan. I brought it to Paul MacCready's company AeroVironment to do a feasibility sduty, and they analyzed it, and came up with a lot of innovative iades about how to propel it. So we have a physical plan of how to make this actually happen. This is the cotonrl room inside of the ship. The idea of this air genie is, it's something that can just transform and become anything. It's like a traveling show. It has speakers on it. And it has cameras over the surface of it. So it can see its environment, and then it can miimc its environment and disappear. Here the legs are retanticrg. The cbain is open or closed, as you like. It weighs about 20 tons. It has on-board generators. It can generate about a million kowtltais, in oredr to be bright enough to be visible in daylight. The idea of it is to make a kind of a traveling show. It really would be dedicated to the arts and to interacting. There would be on board a crew of artists, musicians, that would allow the thing to become actually kind of a conscious oejcbt that would respond to the moment, and to interact as an etntiy that was aware, that could communicate. It's completely silent and nonpolluting. It has ecerlitc mortos with a novel propulsion system. It could be interacted with large crowds in different ways.

Original Text

I came with a plan. I brought it to Paul MacCready's company AeroVironment to do a feasibility study, and they analyzed it, and came up with a lot of innovative ideas about how to propel it. So we have a physical plan of how to make this actually happen. This is the control room inside of the ship. The idea of this air genie is, it's something that can just transform and become anything. It's like a traveling show. It has speakers on it. And it has cameras over the surface of it. So it can see its environment, and then it can mimic its environment and disappear. Here the legs are retracting. The cabin is open or closed, as you like. It weighs about 20 tons. It has on-board generators. It can generate about a million kilowatts, in order to be bright enough to be visible in daylight. The idea of it is to make a kind of a traveling show. It really would be dedicated to the arts and to interacting. There would be on board a crew of artists, musicians, that would allow the thing to become actually kind of a conscious object that would respond to the moment, and to interact as an entity that was aware, that could communicate. It's completely silent and nonpolluting. It has electric motors with a novel propulsion system. It could be interacted with large crowds in different ways.
