We had the opportunity to cover the Daedalus iron man suit a while back. It is a jet engine powered wearable system by inventor Richard Browning. It can lift the wearer off the ground and fly them at impressive speeds. The suit is going to become even more advanced in the future. In these videos, you can see this real-life Iron Man flying at 30mph over a 500m stretch:
As Reuters has reported, the military has interest in the technology. It will be interesting to see what Richard comes up with next. Increasing fuel efficiency and improving flight time seem to be in the cards.
