This is truly amazing! A Dutch engineer named Jarno Smeets has achieved birdlike flight. An article on Wired Science explained...
According to Smeets’ calculations, he needed approximately 2,000 Watts of continuous power to support his roughly 180-pound frame and 40-pound wing pack. His arms could only really provide 5 percent of that, so the rest would have to come from motors. His arms and pecs would basically serve to guide the device and to flap the wings.
He built his electronic, wireless wing set out of Wii controllers, accelerometers harvested from an HTC Wildfire Android phone and Turnigy motors.
I have no idea what a Turnigy motor is, but I'm glad someone has actually found a useful application for Wii controllers and Android phones.
I don't speak Dutch but I'm pretty sure I know what Mr. Smeets is saying around 1:33 and 1:35 in the video so I will spare my readers a full translation.
If you are interested in more details (in English) Mr. Smeets has a blog at Human Birdwings.
