A Real Life Iron Man
4/3/2017 by Kolbe
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of superheroes. In fact, if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I’m sure you’ve figured that out by now. That’s why, when I started to see videos and posts about UK’s Richard Browning, I began to get quite excited. That’s because Richard has built what can only be described as a real life Iron Man suit! It’s comprised of a lightweight exoskeleton suit, including a heads up display, and a total of six gas turbines that provide the thrust for flight. Although Browning is still a long way away from testing the suit at its full potential, he has seen improvements from flights only lasting seconds to now being able to stay in flight in excess of ten minutes! I’m going to begin saving my money now so I can buy this thing whenever it’s available.
