What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

Man Flies Like a Bird

Some months ago we wrote about the dream of mechanical-engineer Jarno Smeets to fly like bird. Over the last few months Jarno worked steadily to materialize his dream. Today Jarno posted a video in which he actually takes off.

Filed under: magical, inspiring, unbelievable, humane technology.


  1. Cool looking, but so fake.

  2. @ Josh: like I said “magical, inspiring, unbelievable”. The Jarno Smeets video’s where made by Dutch film maker Floris Kaayk. Same guy who made the intro leader for the Next Nature Power Show (http://www.nextnature.net/2009/09/next-nature-dvd-%E2%80%93-real-nature-is-not-green/)

    ..and of course the classic mockumentary: Order Electrus (http://www.nextnature.net/2008/05/the-order-electrus/)

    Hope you enjoyed the dream of semi human powered birdwings. Hopefully one day, it will be a reality.
