Human Birdwings Hoax

This human flight hoax has been picked up by all the tech and gizmo blogs within the past 12 hours.

They have Youtube videos going back several months, working machines, blueprints, blogs, press kits... pretty impressive.

The videos on the whole seem vaguely like some kind of fake European viral advertisement, but if you watch this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0tKFOcHyrI&t=1m40s between 1:45 and 1:55 there's a dead giveaway...

Almost, guys!

  1. Nice catch. People are too focused on the latest video, so it will take time for everyone to realise its a hoax. I commented on the 13th video, describing your find, the comment requires approval however, and I doubt it will be.

  2. Could you explain what you mean by the "dead giveaway"? I'm not seeing anything in that section of the video. It's a puzzle.

  3. LoL its not fake.. thats just tape, this guy is a geniuous - http://www.humanbirdwings.net/

    Watch the motor he made, and there are pics on the wings, proving its duck tape or something..

    Nice catch. Also the shoes. They are black. Then they are white.

  5. Hi, I found your blog while looking into the "Human Birdwings" hoax, and I love it! I really enjoyed your post on audio watermarks too. Thanks for taking the time to do this!
