COOL VIDEOS! BUILDING REAL, FLYING IRON MAN ARMOR!

This has to be the coolest video I've seen all month. Adam Savage, formerly of Myth Busters, is teaming up with some highly skilled engineers to fabricate IRON MAN ARMOR that actually flies!! I watched this vid for several minutes before I realized my jaw had dropped for a while! It's amazing, from the titanium printing to the jetpack!

 

FYI, jetpacks are real! For those that may not know this, we've had functioning short range jet packs since the 60's. In reality, they are technically not jetpacks. The Bell model was called a Rocket Belt.

There was a real rocket belts used in the James Bond movie Thunderball in 1965. An episode of 70's series The Bionic Woman called "Canyon of Death" featured a jetpack, but I'm not certain if it was a real one.

 

A jet pack/rocket belt was used for a flight at the 1984 L.A. Olympic ceremonies! Jetpacks/rocket belts are not science fiction, they are science and engineering fact! I hope you enjoyed this totally geeked out blog post. ~Brian
