Called the Snowbird, this human-powered aircraft has made history by becoming the first “wing-flapping machine to fly.” It “has a 105 foot wingspan, but weighs in at only 94 lbs.” Video after the break.

The Snowbird ended up flying 475 feet for 19.3 seconds, at 16 miles per hour. Not an efficient mode of transport, but for nearly 20 seconds, a human flew like a bird.
