Man Flies Like a Bird

Some months ago we wrote about the dream of mechanical-engineer Jarno Smeets to fly like bird. Over the last few months Jarno worked steadily to materialize his dream. Today Jarno posted a video in which he actually takes off.

@ Josh: like I said "magical, inspiring, unbelievable". The Jarno Smeets video's where made by Dutch film maker Floris Kaayk. Same guy who made the intro leader for the Next Nature Power Show (
..and of course the classic mockumentary: Order Electrus (
Hope you enjoyed the dream of semi human powered birdwings. Hopefully one day, it will be a reality.

Cool looking, but so fake.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
