Man builds wings to fly like the birds

A 31-year-old Dutch man has flown over a hundred meters using two Nintendo Wii controllers. Strapped to 55-foot wings, and using a GoPro-camera on his helmet to film the flight, Jarno Smeets became the first man to fly like a bird.

Translation: "I was running...and...At one moment you see the ground moving away, and then suddenly you're free, a really intense feeling of freedom. The true feeling of flying. A very magical moment! The best feeling I have felt in my life."
