If you can't be Jetman...

...perhaps Virtual Birdman is the next best thing.

I thought this was pretty cool, it was a one day only exhibit that was featured at Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History a couple of months ago.

It's called Birdly, and IMO until Oculus and the rest of all of those virtual reality simulators utilize some type of full body movement simulation, they won't really be all that great. Kind of like that contraption in the movie Lawnmower Man that used rotation around all 3 axes, really give you a spatial workout.
