    Man Flies Like A Bird

    Gear  /  Video
    This video shows Dutch engineer Jarno Smeets flying like a bird using custom-built wings. In the video, shot at a park in the Hague in the Netherlands on March 18, Jarno Smeets is seen using his arms to flap the wings as he appears to successfully achieve take-off, flight and landing.
    Mr Smeets claims to have worked with neuromechanics expert Bert Otten to create a design based on the mechanics used in robotic prosthetics which helps to give his muscles extra strength. The Internet is buzzing whether this is fake or not. In a poll done by The Telegraph 43% think it's fake, 25% say it's real and 31% say they can't say for sure.
    Computer Generated Imagery specialist have seen the video and couldn't find any traces of CGI. Scientist can't agree whether this is real or not. Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters says he didn't see evidence that it was faked.
