This Guy Made A Real-Life Iron Man Suit That Actually Works (VIDEO)

Iron Man

Ever since I watched the first Iron Man movie I wanted that badass suit. If you are the same way, you are in for a treat.

One crazily talented British dude is on a mission to make this fictional and aeronautical dream reality, and he’s already managed to come pretty far down the line with it.

The man behind this real-life Iron Man suit (that looks like something straight from a sci-fi movie) is Richard Browning, an inventor and former Marine reserve who’s been investing both time and money in this skeletal flight suit of his.

And the best part is – it indeed looks super-human and it’s 100% real and working.

It took him over 12 months to develop this cool suit that has 4 arm-mounted and 2 hip-mounted gas turbine engines, and it can lift a full grown person.

See the full video below:

Browning named his Iron Man suit Daedalus, after the Greek inventor, while the very process of making it cost an estimated £40,000 (52,000 American dollars), but it’s certainly money well spent

Although Daedalus can in theory move at up to a staggering 450 km/h, thus far Browning has managed to fly for only 12 minutes, and at nowhere near full speed.
