i think this is how he got round that...

The secret to his brief, 328-foot flight in January was reportedly in a flapping mechanism that mimicked the motions of his arms, using accelerometers taken from a Nintendo Wii to read his movements while an Android smartphone calculated the wings' corresponding motor output.
