A real-life Iron Man suit similar to the one worn by Tony Stark has been awarded a patent in what its British creators are saying is the world’s first for a ‘jet suit’.
The Jet Suit is a wearable flight system with turbine engines mounted to the wearer’s arms and back It uses five gas turbines that produce over 1,000 brake horsepower to gain flight and can reach speeds of over 55mph (89kph).
The patent was filed by British tech startup Gravity Industries whose founder, Richard Browning, has previously demonstrated the suit in more than 20 countries around the world.
Mr Browning says the firm now hopes to launch a series of suits for teams to use fly around competitive race courses.
