Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it really is a man. Flying. In a "wingsuit"

Posted by: Helen Walters on December 30, 2008

Caught this video via @jerrymichalski and Jane McGonigal (@avantgame) on Twitter, and felt the need to share it here. These “wingsuits” are astonishing. These “birdmen” are pushing materials and design to the limits… any slip up, miscalculation or error equals certain death, which sure adds a couple of layers of complexity to the proceedings. Anyway, given that I sometimes get vertigo when crossing the street in Manhattan, I find the video completely terrifying — but also utterly mesmerizing. Enjoy.
