Birdly is an Oculus-Powered Experience that Lets You Fly like a Bird

Just like Nelly Furtado, soon you too will be like a bird, and fly away. All jokes aside, the folks behind Birdly have created something truly unique looking.

Featured above, you can view a bit of gameplay of the virtual reality demo, captured by Vimeo user maxR. The demo was created by the Institute for Design Research at the Zürich University of the Arts in Switzerland.

The demo was made in an attempt to simulate the flight of the red kite, a large bird of prey native to Europe and northwest Africa. The combination of the Oculus Rift, the sonic feedback, and a fan that blows wind onto your head, create what looks like an incredible experience.

You can find more about Birdly over on the project’s official website.
