Video of the Day: flying like a bird

We all want to fly. We have all wanted to since we were children who realized that humans do not fly and birds do. Today’s video of the day features Dutch engineer Jamo Smeets successfully flying like a bird. Our concept of travel, and the related transportation necessary, is basically based on the bird. Humans aren’t born with wings so we invented the airplane. Because of the airplane we have modern day travel. But what if we could all fly ourselves? Granted, this video demonstrates a type of flying that couldn’t yet carry us far distances but maybe one day this technology will evolve. Smeets developed this project for eight months prior to testing the technology at a park in The Hague on March 18, 2012. Check it out.
