Artist Creates Articulating Pneumatic Wings Fit for a Human

Artist Alexis Noriega of The Crooked Feather has created a handmade pair of bird wings fit for a real human. As a matter of fact, the artist’s work is provided with pneumatic automation, which means that the wings can stretch and retreat through a sophisticated air pressure system, operated at the flick of a switch.

This set costs $2,500, but other designs can be seen in Noriega’s Etsy store. If you’d like to try building your own, you’re in luck because the artist will soon be publishing a tutorial on her YouTube channel.
