British technology startup Gravity Industries is all set to give wings to our superhero fantasies as it announced its plan to 3D-print a real, flying Iron Man suit that will let humble humans take off vertically and take an aerial plunge at thrilling speeds.

The metallic suit is designed to be a 1,000 Horsepower beast, courtesy six miniature jet engines outfitted on the arms and the lower back, notes Design Boom.

However, the jet-pack cannot be used by just anyone given its raw power that can shoot the user down to ground, writes To be able to fly in the suit, one will need extensive physical control so that he can direct the jets.
