Man Creates Real-Life Iron Man Suit That Really Flies
Before I met my husband, I knew who Batman, Spiderman, and Superman were, but that was pretty much the extent of my superhero knowledge.
My husband grew up going to the family cabin in Canada and that's where his love of comic books and superheroes blossomed. The cabin doesn't have electricity, so Jay would spend hours reading on rainy summer days.
If there's one person who knows his superheroes, it would be my husband. He's seen every superhero show and movie and knows who all the heroes and villains are, and how they're all connected. Jay has made it his mission to share his love of superheroes with our little boy, which means I'm getting schooled as well.
After Halloween last year, I visited our local Walmart where they had superhero costumes on massive discount and I picked out several for our son to play in, including an Iron Man suit. My son's suit won't make him fly, but did you hear about the guy with an Iron Man suit that actually does?
Richard Browning is an English inventor and he incredibly made an Iron Man suit that flies. Can you imagine? If you're hoping to get your hands on one of these suits, you might want to start saving your pennies.
Richard says that the suit comes with a price tag of $250,000 and that it can reach speeds of 195 miles an hour and that it is also capable of flying thousands of feet in the air. If you've got $250,000 laying around, Richard says that his suit is “something that you could buy instead of a Lamborghini.”
