Perhaps you've heard of poor Icarus' meltdown, or have seen Leonardo da Vinci's drawings and working models in miniature. Or perhaps you've attended a Flugtag and watched furious peddlers steer their craft off a 30 foot deck and into the waters below. But have you ever seen a full scale, human-carrying, wing-flapping, wind-sculpting ornithopter?
Of course you haven't. Get ready to smile.
The powerful visuals reminded me of Theo Jansen's intricate walking sculptures.
