Inventor of “Iron Man” jet suit beats his own speed record

Yahoo Finance

Who needs flying cars when you have a flying “jet suit”?

British inventor Richard Browning developed this flying jet suit.

It’s called Daedalus, and it’s powered by 800 horsepower…

via six gas turbine engines — two mounted on his lower back and two on each arm.

The suit features a helmet and holographic heads-up display and full body armor.

Browning took it out for a spin in Somerset, England, and beat his record…

by going over 30 mph and covering several hundred meters.

The developer is hoping his invention can be used in the military as well as for search-and-rescue efforts.
