I never, never thought I'd see this. Given the weight/density differences between people and birds, the way our muscles work, our unkeeled sternum etc etc there has never been a way to see clear to the physics that would allow a person to fly like a bird.

Some ILM cg guys are saying its fake.
At the beginning of his flight there is something not right that makes me think it too.

www.gizmodo.com/5895235/cgi-experts-say-flying-bird-man-is-fake
#9 hits it best. The head camera footage is stable...
And the shadows.

My guess is it's a red bull flugtag viral.
Or actually I missed this one... The 3d "engineering model" is in Maya. Fail. Pro-e would be used, not a freaking cg package. So guess its a maya ad.

So wish that was possible. That's the crap i've dreamt of since I was a kid. Total fake though. Man just doesn't have the power/weight ratio to be able to pull that off...ever.

Balls don't even begin to describe that. There's something wrong with those guys. In an amazing way, but something definitely wrong.
