Motorized model of human-powered flying machine

Here is a short video showing an animated model of a human-powered flying machine. According the YouTube video description, it was designed and built by Jurgen Heimann from the Discovery Channel show Doing DaVinci. I haven't been able to find out much about it. Anyone out there seen it before or perhaps have one?

Hi Dug:
I haven't seen this show, but this is the farthest thing from any drawing, design or any Da Vinci's concept which I can think of. At the risk to sound pedant without knowing anything about aerodynamic Da Vinci was more closer to a real flying machine than this but I'm sure you already know it.

Hi Andres,

I think you are right. My guess is that this didn't have anything to do with the show. the pilot has goggles and the aircraft has some type of lighting. If it was made by Jurgen Heimann, it may be an art piece.
