The Birth of a Real Life Superhero

Posted on Posted in Tech-'o'-Mania

Hey friends!! How’re you all doing?? Well I’m doing pretty good. Do you guys like superheroes?? So whom do u like, Superman, Batman, Spiderman or may be you like the Deadpool as he got some great comic skills. He got almost everything awesome except his weird face. Everyone in this world has got a dream to become a Superhero someday, got some superpowers or to get a chance to save the world from the evils. Do you think can these things be a reality someday??

Being a Superhero will not be a dream anymore. As a 38-year-old oil trader from South England named Richard Browning is claimed to be a real life Iron Man. This amateur had been secretly building a jet engine-powered exoskeleton suit and he recently unveiled how his invention enables him to hover in the air like a superhero. His suit consists of three sets of miniature jet engines attached to the arms and the back. He had been experimenting in his garage for 18 months, trying to figure out the optimal number and position of the jet engines to allow him to fly with a minimal amount of equipment. Despite of having too much noises made by his technology, he wouldn’t let any anyone know about this great thing. He was inspired to create the suit by the Greek myth of Daedalus, who made himself wings to escape from captivity. The suit takes its name from the myth. Inspirations are the reason for the birth of some great things in the same way, Browning created something really cool after getting inspired from the late Greek mythology.

Idea behind the Creation of this Superhero thing


Browning’s way of seeing the things in some different and innovative way give birth to this amazing technology. As he thought, the human body is very good at being trained to do specific things, and it’s a useful structure, and the human mind is a pretty amazing machine. So he got this idea to build a machine that rely on gyros and computers in order to achieve the stability.

How this thing works??

Browning admitted that piloting the device takes quite a lot of personal strength and body coordination.Β There is no steering mechanism, and speed and direction can be adjusted only by changing the direction of the engines’ thrust, solely using upper-body strength.

“You have a trigger at your right hand, which controls the arm engines, and you have a trigger at your left hand, which controls the rear engines,” said Browning.

“You preset the power levels. Your arms are held out, and as you then line them up vertically and direct them towards the ground, all the thrust vectors [thrust vector is the direction in which the engine produces force] start lining up and you achieve lift-off. When you want to go down, you flail your arms again.”

Future of the Technology

Browning said he hopes to further enhance the technology. Currently, he can stay in the air for up to 10 minutes using the exosuit. Browning said he thinks he could eventually fly more than 60 mph (100 km/h) and to an altitude of about 330 feet (100 meters), but so far, the inventor has kept his superhero experiments at a running speed of about 5 mph (8 km/h) and an altitude of only 3 to 6 feet (1 to 2 m) above the ground.Β The next phase of the project will focus on improving the suit’s performance, and that work will include experimenting with longer flights.

Well it’s cost is extremely high, around $250,000 which is not intended for market at this stage but in future, this amazing piece of engineering will help the human race at its best. Just imagine the future of flying firemen rescuing people trapped in burning fifth-floor apartments in superhero style.
