Man Creates Working Bird Wings — Wile E. Coyote Places First Order

Man has always dreamed of flight, and then we invented airplanes and helicopters and blimps and jetpacks and flying DeLoreans and stuff. But we kept dreaming of flight like the birds do it — with our own damned muscles.

The geniuses behind the Human Birdwings project have been struggling valiantly for nearly a year, constructing a variety of contraptions to simulate the flight process, and this last weekend they finally did it.

You heard us right: a dude flew on giant bird wings. Sure, he only went about the length of a football field, but how far did you fly under your own power today? Point = bird dude.

Check the video out.

UPDATE: Ah, too good to be true. Gizmodo reports it’s all a hoax. Womp womp.
