Man Flies Like a Bird in The Hague

First a Robot Flies Like a Bird. Then Humans Fly with the Birds. Now Man Flies Like a Bird with Cus­tom-Made Wings. It’s the third part of our unplanned tril­o­gy. Accord­ing to Wired, Dutch engi­neer Jarno Smeets took flight using “using videogame con­trollers, an Android phone and cus­tom-built wings,” and it all hap­pened this past week­end at a park in The Hague. There’s appar­ent­ly some spec­u­la­tion about the authen­tic­i­ty of the video. But Wired seems to think it will hold up. And, no mat­ter what, we’re inclined to sus­pend dis­be­lief and just enjoy this lit­tle moment.
