Wings for human flight following bat anatomy?

Could it be possible to create some kind of wings for human flight following a bat’s anatomy? (I know, you’d have to put into question many things like weight, lift, strenght and other things) I am just fantasizing of course, just want to know what everybody else thinks.

  • wikipedia says the golden crowned fruit bat is the largest bat, weighing in at about 3lbs and with a wingspand of around 5 feet. using these proportions, an average human being weighing about 130lbs would have to have a wingspan of around 217ft. i guess it would be possible.
