A UK inventor makes his own jet-propelled flight suit like an Iron Man
- A British inventor Richard Browning has designed and built a flight suit like an Iron Man.
He attached to his limbs with multiple jet engines in various configurations and tried to fly a few feet from the ground.
The four arm-mounted gas turbine engines and two hip-mounted gas turbine engines provide enough lift to enable a person capable of holding their body weight for long periods of time to fly.
Video footage shows the pilot moving in the air steadily using the jet suit. The pilot demonstrates enough control to move forwards and backwards with ease and speed.
The company claims the suit can fly in most locations and, despite being capable of flying at several hundred miles per hour, and at thousands of feet, normal operation of the suit sees the wearer flying at no more than a couple of metres.
Richard Browning said;
"This is a momentous point in aviation history. Daedalus is simply the beginning of a core technology that has endless potential in aviation, commercial and entertainment applications."
