    A Dutch mechanical engineer is thrilled his custom-built bird wings achieved his dream of taking flight. After working on the human-bird wings for eight months, Jarno Smeets is making history and causing a viral controversy since there are skeptics who say the video of him flying is fake. Maureen Aladin has more.

I have always DREAMED of having my own feathered wings, and being able to fly, maybe it will come true.

My entire life ive literally dreamed of this. Even to this day i still stare up at the sky and get jealous of all the birds flying and im a grown ass man now lol. If I had the money and know how Id partner with someone to come up a mechanical device that flaps the wings for you since we humans just dont have the muscle power to do so. Hopefully some really smart person with a lot of money has the same dream as me and decides to go out and try to make it happen. Id give him my money in a heart beat.

I know the video is faked, but this is exactly what I mean whenever I say "I want to fly" not in a plane, not on a jetpack, on wings of my own.

He came out on television saying that it was a hoax. But, heck yes! It looks so awesome. I love how technology has progressed to this level!

Flying is easy. Taking off & landing, not so much.

Imagine actually doing something like that and then being able to say "I broke physics with a Wiimote".

I too have dreamed of such a device, if they were real and actually worked, I'd have a pair in a heartbeat, but he needs to work on the flapping a bit, so his arms only go up and down as much as the wings, not more, and work on a stronger more effective tail for steering and control in flight, also, a way to fold the wings up, so you can walk around easier with them on your back, and the look, change the colour to a dark brown or black, and they would resemble a bat's wings or that of a dragon or Pterosaur, nice, how much for a set please ? when perfected. :-))

Why hasn’t anyone tried this in the last 8 years

Ok. So I’ve always loved birds and the idea of humans being able to fly with wings. I read the Maximum Ride series and that gave me a ton of inspiration. Is there any logical scientific way to build a pair of wings that could give a human liftoff? It would require a ton of math and study but could it be possible? If so HOW DO I DO IT. it’s a crazy idea but I can’t get it out of my head.

With those wings he would have been able to fly, if the wings would flap harder.

while a man can never have the muscle power in the pecs to actually flap like that to fly... it is actually very possible to make a mechanism that could flap those wings with just "flapping" with our fingers.. so "technically/mecanically" it should be possible! NOW.. there needs to be a person who would like the idea to actually put his life on play for this, and the right mechanic skills.. I could in fact be such a person!.. IF I had the money to invest my time (a couple of years at least) to this.

In order to fly, the wingspan would need to be at least 7 meters (about 23 ft), which could feasibly lift the weight of a human. However, one would need to flap such wings harder than a human can to fly like a bird does. Most hang gliders have a wingspan of approximately 9 meters (about 30 ft), which is wide enough for gliding through the air.

Man can fly if he weighs 90 pounds, is as strong as a 250-pound athlete, and has the endurance of a 440 yard sprinter.

It's not just a question of the wings. The bigger question is strength. Pound for pound, birds have upper body strength that is almost unimaginable.

He uses the phones to control the servos that flap the wings. Brilliant!

I love the idea but for it to work the wing has to fold up when it moves up.

As a kid I had dreams I could float and fly around my house and neighborhood at night, still do lol maybe one day

Se isso funciona, é incrível como ninguém fez mais nada depois de oito anos.
