feel like a bird
slicing through the wind
oh o experience over

I recently went to the Swiss consulate (Swissnexx) in Bangalore to try out their virtual simulator called Birdly.   My timing was just about perfect since the crowd had just left. I was quite amused and curious when they asked how long back I ate.

The equipment as you can see above has two projections where  the arms go. As you guessed by the name and design, this was a simulator to fly like a bird above the San Francisco Skyline.  There is a fan to simulate the wind and headphones that give an overall effect.

The experience though a short one was anything like I had before. It was exactly like flying in the air and the flapping of wings and manipulation to turn and swoop exactly like a bird does.  I did do a pigeon when I crashed into a building and the simulation ended but they were good enough to start it again 😀

That this was a freebie was an icing on the cake of course.  Guess what I did after that?  Tweeted of course!! (oh pun totally intended)
