Real-life 'Iron Man' suit has gone on sale

Inventor Richard Browning's impressive flight suit is now available to purchase for a whopping $440,000.
The madcap inventor and former marine raised eyebrows last year 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.

"It started out as an exploration alongside a day job," said Browning. "We realised we were headed in a direction that had already been thought about - the Iron Man character."
During a record attempt back in November, he managed to reach a top speed of 32mph.

"Every time I fly, it's a pleasure. It's intense, but there's always this degree of humility," he said.

"It's just like driving a formula one car or racing a sports bike - you have always got to have that respect for the possibility that something could go wrong when you don't want it to happen."

Not all that expensive for a 1 off suit. My question is why hes selling it? Is there more than 1? Is suit phase 2 coming out? Is he just over it?

If it doesn't come with Jarvis, I don't want it. I definitely don't want Siri managing my power output
