WATCH: Real life Iron Man jet around Dubai



We love a superhero, Batman, Superman, Spider-Man. We love them all, especially Iron Man. With his wit, brains and his seemingly endless supply of money – oh, what we would do with all that money…

Sorry, back on to the topic at hand, Iron Man. It seems like one man might be an even bigger fan of the robot suit wearing genius that is Tony Stark than we are.

Richard Browning, a 39-year-old innovation guru from the UK has created his very own high flying suit, which can be seen in the video below.

The stunt took place at the opening ceremony for the GISEC security and technology conference that took place just yesterday.

His suit consists of six micro gas turbines which he attached to his arms and back.

His impressive piece of tech has not only helped the Gravity Industries founder steal local headlines, it’s also nabbed him the Guinness World Record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit.

If you’re a fan, you can get your hands on your very own jet pack. For a starting price of US$250,000 (AED918,000), the UK based innovation company can make one for you.

We’re not too sure where you’d be able to fly it, the desert perhaps? But it would be pretty cool to have one…

Browning, if you’re reading this – we’d like to give it a go, please.
