Despite the obvious similarities between Browning's suit and the one worn by Robert Downey Jr. in the movies, the inventor doesn't welcome the comparisons. He told Player.one: "It’s cool because I like the Iron Man film. It’s a cool concept and it’s nice having built something that’s not too entirely dissimilar. We could have painted it gold and red, and that would have made the point that we are really trying to aspire to recreate it, but no. It has nothing to do with comic books."
Browning is the founder of Gravity, a human jet-propulsion start-up that aims to reinvent the way humans fly with the aid of very expensive engines strapped to their bodies. He made some viral waves in March when he first unveiled his jet-propelled suit with the help of Red Bull. Called Daedalus, the suit uses two jet-powered engines on his arms and an additional jet-engine strapped to his back to achieve flight. With it blasting at full capacity, Browning can ascend as high as 30-feet and scream through the air at 50 mph. It's guaranteed to scare the hell out of any local population of birds and possibly warrant scrutiny from the FAA.
