Literally Fly Like a Bird: Designers Have Built a Life-Like Flight Simulator [VIDEO]

Called ‘Birdly,’ this dynamic flight simulator gives the operator a virtual reality ride that allows them all the sensations of flying like a bird.

Virtual reality can turn the mind inside out. To fly like a bird is one of mankind’s greatest dreams and now it is a reality without the use of a parachute.

The Birdly flight simulator has made our dream come true, even if you do look a little silly.

 

Visitors to the Geneva Lift 15 Conference had a firsthand look at the Birdly in February of 2015. With a fan installed on the front of the device, some patrons experienced such astonishing sensations as jumping off buildings with the wind in their face.

Although it’s still in the testing phase, the designers can see several possibilities for the Birdly flight simulator including therapeutic uses and use in the entertainment industry.
