Man learned to fly like a bird!


Banal joystick and accelerometer of the prefix of the demolished "Google Phone" served as a Dutch engineer Yarnosu Smettsu controls for its kiberkrylev. Sketches by Leonardo da Vinci and artificial muscles by type roboprotezov completed the rest, finally allowing the person to fly like a bird.

To solve this problem, the 31-year-old Dutch inventor Yarnos Smetts spent eight months to build not just wings and kiberkrylev. According to his calculations, for a flight at a body weight of 80 kg and a weight of 20 kg kiberkrylev need 2 kW nominal power (almost 3 liters. With.), Of which his hands could give no more than 5% (a person can achieve up to 13 liters. s. but only a very short time and only the best examples). That is why he immediately excluded them from consideration, believing that hands do'lzhno more direct (via joystick) than to wave. Everything else was left to the mercy of motors, based on — the usual serial mechanisms, obtained from … roboprotezov.

"I always dreamed about it!" — Exclaims pioneer waving kibervozduhoplavaniya. And it's true: even his father tried to make Yarnosa machine driven by muscle power. Fortunately, the Mr. Smetts went the other way, knowing that the forces are not only men, but also the muscles at all for such a flight is not enough. Even the most massive ever existed flying birds — Hunting for the moa and ash, according to Maori legend, human children — do not weigh more than 15 kg. From a human weight so you can either fly in a dense atmosphere, either by gravity to 0,3 g or less (as on Titan).





Therefore Jarno addressed by Bert Otten, a specialist in neyromehanike, with whom he thought of placing in the wings engines with a total capacity of 2 kW. The shape of kiberkrylya were inspired, according to the inventor, sketches person with mechanical wings, attributed to Leonardo.

They are made of fabric on a rigid frame, each weighs pounds, despite the rather large bearing surface. Of their production went fabric glider Slingshot Fuel area of about 17 m ^ (2). The upper part of the wing is made with a significant bend, so the profile looks "thick". As the inventor, it was the only way to ensure an acceptable lift. Moreover, during the flight, he had to tie an extra piece of fabric between the legs, in the manner of "the tail wing."


But in spite of all the inconveniences, after a moment's flight (akkumulyatory!), he rightly said, "The magic moment. The best feeling I've ever experienced in my life. "
