Ready for first flight: BIRDLY

Ready for first flight: BIRDLY



Birdly® allows visitors to fly like a bird and discover a fantastic perspective in a realistic virtual reality experience. For an even more immersive full-body experience, users control their flight by moving their hands while they can even feel the wind on their face.

The unique device was developed by the Swiss startup SOMNIACS, which was founded at the world-famous Zurich art school ZHdK. For intense creation and immersive flying adventures, SOMNIACS relies heavily on precise sensory-motor integration and powerful visual performance. In addition, Birdly includes audio and wind feedback: according to the speed simulator, it adjusts the headwind from the fan placed in front of you.


Birdly® combines extended forms of storytelling with powerful visuals and technical sophistication to create a unique and intuitive experience.
