The inventor of the impressive flying suit demonstrated his creation at this week's TED conference.
Former marine Richard Browning raised eyebrows back at the beginning of the month when he revealed 'Daedalus' - a futuristic suit not dissimilar to Tony Stark's comic book "Iron Man" armor.

Since then, interest in his invention has gone from strength to strength with even a member of the UK military allegedly expressing a desire to adapt the suit for use on the battlefield.

Browning's most recent appearance was at a TED event in Vancouver where he gave a talk about his invention to a crowd of over 2,000 guests before donning the suit for a quick demonstration.

"The reaction was brilliant," he said. "It left a big impression on people, I think."

It is interesting how he intuitively moves his arms to maintain balance and upright posture. With some refinement, we all might be shooting across the sky.

Baby steps if you ask me. True it's not very practical now but the wright brothers never crapped out a fighter jet back in the day either. This iron man suit may or may not amount to anything in the way of the iconic comic book hero, I still think it's kinda cool.
