  • you do know that you can take a perpetual drive engine with magnets and use a motorcycle alternator to create electricity in a small backpack 3 jet engines EDF 300cc jet engines on the back one on each arm one on each leg you'll have unlimited flight time anybody want to work on the idea with me let me know I have some prototype information and all the schematics and yes to 300cc EDF fan motors will lift my hundred and sixty-eight lb self off the ground

  • Super

  • *Let Us Not Forget Troy Hurtubise, The Original Bulletproof Titanium “Iron Man”.*

  • Until we don't get nanotechnology ,,, we can't make a suit like iron man

  • Need a shock absorber syst on the legs for a painless landing . But this is so awesome !

  • If Tony Stark doesn’t exist, then how do you explain Robert Downey Jr.

  • Wow

  • Me and the boys in Area 51

  • Lol if tony was real we would have way better technology

  • I don't know why but my message has been erased concerning the helmet Vision situation. I don't know why but I'm going to keep an eye out for this to happen again. What they need to do is to get a hold of Google and take their new Google Glass wear and install into helmet. Cameras for better View and monitoring for fuel and Aviation. Plus they can get better 360 visuals. Let's see if this gets erased this time!

  • Looks like humans need another 150 years before the technology in the marvel movies become reality

  • Somebody should possibly get in touch with Doctor soles

  • And run some type of shock absorber from bottom of sole to upper back to support neck to relieve pressure for landing

  • Now what they need to do is use the tech from Google smart glass or whoever is coming out with the new glasses in the vision of the Iron Man suit

  • Yo vengo por wefere

  • That's owesome 😘😘😘

  • no way That's Amazing!

  • Holy Shit!!!

  • he wiol be a good fighter in the area 51 raid

  • Hay Adam Savage what happened when this iron Man lifter fix at legs

  • The future is bright for these kind of tech....

  • At this rate, he'll have a Mk50 in no time!

  • How the hacksmith made a really cool video series and Adam said "hey let's do that"

  • Deeear Santa....

  • Howdy cowboys Oh wait wrong universe...

  • 1960: in future we gonna have flying cars 2019: we... oh wait we have an ironman suit! exceeded expectations

  • 4:52 That reminds me of one of the best scenes from the first iron man movie. Let's start at 10% power ;)

  • Call the russian guy who created a real Iron Man repulsor and the Hacksmith for the armor / helmet .

  • Don't try jets on iron man suit fancoln suit better for test

  • Iron man has gotten a little!....this is like back when thise dudes were first inventing planes and automobile prototypes, etc. 50 years and this’ll all be refined and awesome like in the movies...and the parkour, sports, strength, and extreme athletes, etc. will have gelled to become batmen, spidermen, hulks, wolverines, widow, even the lightsaber-wielding Jedi (and Sith) etc......oh yeh, it’s-a-coming ....all of that comic book and sci-fi goodness...believe u me! ...Common-place in 50 to 100 years from now....that’s just around the!😉

  • i mean if he accidently crashes it he has armor

  • i think it's fake

  • Iron armor skipped leg day

  • Faltaron los pies para volar como avión

  • 😥😥😥

  • Cool... Cool... Now make one that contours to your body by the press of a button from a suitcase.

  • Even if you succeed at that, your pee will come out under high g's acceleration

    • @MisakaMikotoLuv if that was solution, then there would be a hole near penis to pee

    • integrate empty bottles in the suit, problem fixed

  • Concept: total bad ass panty dropping billionaire iron man Reality: 0:22

  • He can fly, but has difficulty walking ? lol

  • Fallout 4 power armor soldiers might be a reality

  • You better be working on the super soldier serum.

  • Why is noone talking about the fact that this suit is also *BULLETPROOF*

    • Probably because it's not really that surprising that titanium can stop a bullet... that was only a .45 ACP btw, I'd be surprised if that thin titanium could stop a round that has some actual power behind it.

  • I confess, When I saw that man flying across the water... I screamed so loud I startled myself! "HOLY SHIT"

  • Chest is huge man. It must be upgraded

  • so we learned that Ironman suit is not suitable for human body 😎

  • Apply a wolworine claw

  • 2019 - Ironman suit is just props for the movie, Impossible to make in real life. 2029 - ?

  • Lmao, thats completely trash design. Adopt my final blue print and you can made the full combat mode iron man suit.

  • Tony would be laughing his ass off

  • I demand robey Downey Jr gets a free one
