Human powered ornithopter!

University of Toronto engineering student Todd Reichert has created the first human-powered flying machine that flies like a bird, allowing a human to control giants wings which flap to create lift!  The machine, called "The Snowbird," uses a system of ropes and pulleys to control the giant wings which compose it's 105ft wingspan.

It is so cool to see one of the last "flying firsts" happen in my lifetime.  I also really like the word "ornithopter."
