Mechanical Wings are gliders that are one of Jay's inventions used for gliding long distances without touching the ground.
The Mechanical Wings has are a set of sail-like wings made of sturdy cloth stretched between several wooden poles and mounted on a person's back. A set of cords on the supporting poles connect to small wooden handles in the user's hands, allowing them to move the wings in flight.
- The wings seem to be based on the Great Kite, made by Leonardo da Vinci.
- Young Lloyd called them "gliders" instead of "mechanical wings."
