The technology start-up Gravity, founded by Richard Browning, will team up with Tested’s Adam Savage, to manufacture a suit with metal 3D printing and wings.

Adam Savage’s Tested is known for its special effects for Hollywood films. The company will understand and know how to make real Richard Browning’s vision, which is “to build an entirely new generation of human flight systems for commercial and entertainment applications.

Gravity jet engine

Gravity jet engine is constituted of four arm-loaded thrusters, and a jet pack strapped to the wearer’s back. A backpack filled with fuel is attached to the jet pack.

The arm configuration can weigh up to 90 lbs (40.8 kg) and reach a temperature of  700°C (1292°F).

According to Browning, the suit can be controlled intuitively by the wearer whereas an AR helmet will automatically give real-time data of speed and altitude to the pilot.

We are working on a whole bunch of adaptations with the manufacturer,” says Browning “to make [the engines] much more fit for what we’re now using them for, because clearly they weren’t designed for this.

A complete demo of the suit in flight with Adam & Richard could be found here.
