Inventor Makes Iron Man Suit You Can Buy

British inventor Richard Browning has developed an Iron Man style suit that set a Guinness World Record for recording the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine-powered suit. The record is now 32.2 mph.

That doesn't sound like a lot, but when you have a flight suit powered by six kerosene-fueled micro gas turbines, each of which has 22 kg of thrust, you're lucky to survive the journey.

It’s controlled through body movements alone, so Browning said he had to work on his core strength exercises to be able to balance and hold his position in the air during flight.

And now you can buy your own. For about a half million dollars you could go soaring over Rt. 128 traffic, or squish on someone's windshield like a bug...
