Designer and fabricator, Adam Savage from Discovery channels show Mythbusters has built a fully functional Real Iron Man suit. With time and years passing by since the world was first introduced with the Iron Man character, we have seen countless attempts trying to replicate the suit, we have seen comic-junkies, cosplayers, techies, engineers and designers, literally everyone trying to build this iconic suit. Many of them failed, many found success but with many exceptions.
Adam Savage has unlocked an impressive accomplishment as his suit just doesn’t look ‘Iron Man’ accurate with thrusters and a jetpack but can take flight as the real one. Still, don’t believe us? Check out the video below.
Adam Savage is currently working on a return to TV with an all-new show called Savage Builds. The series will have eight episodes in which Adam will build military gadgets and film inspired tech. A must watch for all you tech enthusiasts out there.
He partnered with Richard Browning, the owner of jet pack company Gravity, to build a suit with enough horsepower to soar above the ground.
Using four jets bolted to each arm, and one attached to his back, Savage described an “astounding experience.”
“I was just able to hover like 15 feet off the ground and actually directionalize and aim a little bit and that last bit of just feeling the power — my arms locked rising above the ground—absolutely incomparable,” he said while trying the prototype.
