If you can't spot CGI in this video, then i have nothing else to say as all hope is lost for you
It is so blatantly obvious.
Man's physical make-up didn't evolve into something capable of flight, it is virtually impossible, we are too heavy and our muscles aren't strong enough, letalone being aerodynamic in build.
If you believe this is real....... w-o-w.
I've never understood replies like this.
Who are you to say that all hope is lost for someone who doesn't see something the way you see something? Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters doesn't seem to think it's fake. I suppose that ALL hope is lost for him as well, since he doesn't see the "blatantly obvious" that your highly trained eye sees.
Get off your high horse.

I looked at the images and that video, and I'm still not convinced. None of your arguments about the CGI are convincing to me, yet.
You should both answer the question: why would someone who has already built an undeniably real set of motor controlled flapping wings (several 'experts' I've read have admitted this), then have to use CGI to fake him hopping 2ft into the air? Any gliding wing will do that for you.
He supposedly did not fly until 19th March. The video you and Wired have referenced as 'proof' is from January. He didn't claim to fly in January. So your argument is that he CGI faked not flying. You call that proof?

Are all of you that dumb?? He never said it was POWERED BY HIM!! ON his website he shows you pictures of the motor. It saddens me to have to say this, You are all Retarded...
Jamie is not impressed

An apology from people who insisted this was real. An apology for making other people provide them with the common sense they should have on their own.
Don't even get me started on the search feature....Its not only ridiculous but old and rehashed as well.
