If dreams come true, some of us might be donning Ironman suits and flying around feeling as happy as a bird. Richard Browning decided to make it a step closer to reality.
This TED talk really shows sometimes how inventions are 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Looking at the process Richard Browning went through, where he tried different numbers and combinations of mini gas turbines, and how he sought to improve his control over the thrust he had, is only something someone who is fully passionate about can do. Others would have given up soon after the first few failed attempts and left this to others while they went on with their daily lives. I applaud his grit in developing this flight suit. Perhaps someday this will make the ironman dream true for all of us.
