Superpower for heroes

Mobility

What do superheroes do when their nemesis is on holiday? Relax? They would not be heroes.

They keep on saving lives.

Maybe inspired by Marvel action hero, Iron Man, a British firm has developed a gravity-defying suit, which stands to revolutionize mountain rescue.

With the help of three micro-jet engines fixed to the sleeves and back, air is blown towards the earth enabling the suit wearer to take off.

Thanks to the lightweight jet suit, injured parties on difficult terrain can be located – and assisted – far quicker than is currently possible by foot.

With the ability to scale, and cruise, at heights of up to six meters in a matter of minutes, know that help truly is on its way.
