Adam Savage Meets Richard Browning’s Iron Man Flight Suit!

If you just so happen to be one of those people who is obsessed with comic book superheroes like Iron Man then boy have we got a real life video for you! No, you aren’t imagining things and it doesn’t really look like there are special effects used in this video. Instead, what we see is the suit that has come together to imitate a sort of Iron Man functionality, allowing the user to strap up and take flight all without any sort of help outside of the suit. It’s incredible to think that, maybe even just a couple of years from now, we could see people traveling around with their very own flying suits to help them get to wherever it is they need to go.
This time, we catch up with Richard Browning, the man who was responsible for creating this sort of apparatus that would make whoever’s wearing it look like a real life superhero. Adam Savage is on the scene to meet up with Richard and discuss exactly what it would take to make this flight suit what it has become today. During their time together, Richard takes the time to explain just how he developed the suit and some of the challenges and successes that he met along the way. There definitely is a roller coaster ride involved with developing something this complex and it’s an interesting story to be told so we’re all ears for this one.
Follow along down the video below as these guys go over the features of the suit to show you exactly what makes it so darn cool. If these kinds of suits were available for public consumption at a reasonable price would you purchase your very own flying suit so you could get to work in an unprecedented way? I’m not sure if I would have enough maturity to ever turn something like this down if I was given the opportunity.
