ehehehe..... You do know that those are just a big hoax right? :)


Allow me to explain. :)


They are insects. Perfectly ordinary insects. What you see is several wingbeat cycles of the insect on each frame of the video, creating the illusion of a "rod" with bulges along its length. The blurred body of the insect as it moves forward forms the "rod," and the oscillation of the wings up and down form the bulges. Anyone with a video camera can duplicate the effect, if you shoot enough footage of flying insects from the right distance.


And now you know. ;)
