Maybe you’ve always wondered what it would be like to soar like a bird up above the clouds and now you can find out with the Birdly flight simulator that lets users feel like a bird.

The Birdly flight simulator was invented in Germany to creatively let adventure junkies see, feel and smell just like a flying bird. The Birdly lets users lay down on their stomach over top of a series of sensors that hook up to their stomach, hands and feet. As the simulator begins to fly, the user feels their body soar and move just like a conventional bird would. Fans are placed along the body so you can really feel like you’re gliding in the wind. Other interesting features include the release of earthy scents to mimic trees and a digital mask that visually shows your surroundings.
