Flight simulator lets you fly like a pigeon for a brief span of time

Researchers at University College London’s Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) have built a flight simulator that lets you fly like a pigeon. Only the difference is that you have to flap your arms instead of wings. If you want to hover over London, the simulator will use Google Earth and a Microsoft Kinect sensor which will track your body movements and interpret them to pigeon’s movements of navigation.


The simulator will allow you to fly higher by flapping your arms, lower altitude by dropping arms and changing direction of flight by leaning either side. The simulator has been built not for fun purposes but to raise awareness for the college’s urban modeling work.
