A real-life invention reminiscent of Marvel's Iron Man is sure to get superhero fans hyped up. British inventor Richard Browning demonstrated his jet powered suit for a large crowd on the lawn of the Victoria Theatre in Singapore. Although developing this remarkable machinery was quite the task, Richard found the most fulfillment in going after the impossible.

While he only managed to hover a few feet off the ground, in theory, his invention could fly at the same elevation as an aircraft. He doesn't predict his invention to suddenly take off (no pun intended) but he hopes it will encourage someone else to accomplish their dreams.
