Flying like a bird

Dutch engineer Jarno Smeets embodied the old dream of mankind - up into the sky, waving his wings. As the basis of design, he used tissue from the kite. The inventor was deceived by Leonardo da Vinci, who in his time has proved that the forces of human pectoral muscles may not be enough, that in order to raise into the air. In fact, moving the wings are not your hands, and placed on the back, compact and powerful electric motors with a long battery life. Hands only by management. To create an interface was developed sophisticated electronic system that uses a pair of HTC Wildfire S, microcontroller Seeduino, and sensors on the Nintendo Wii. During a test flight, Jarno Smeets rose to a height of about one hundred meters.
