Have you watched Iron Man movie? You must be wonder, the robot suit you can find in that movie, can it be really made in real world? Actually, we can say in the near future, this kind of amazing superhero suit can be really made into reality. There is proof about this matter. It’s Richard Browning that has successfully create exosuit that has three miniature jet engine that can make person who wear it fly and even control where that person want to move in the air. To make this suit, Browning need around $250,000. Although it doesn’t have magnificent feature like Iron Man, such as superhuman strength or laser, it proved that science can do what you imagine. Now the question is how about other superhero?
Wolverine has super healing ability. He can heal really fast. In real world, there are attempts to do that. It has been done by The Electrical Prescriptions Program (ElecRX). They develop some kind of implant that can stimulate your body system to heal the damaged part of your body. This implant has really small size. And, it proved to be really useful to treat chronic inflammatory problem. So, patient that has rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory bowel diseases and such, can be healed much better with this implant. So, this implant will make the body focus on healing, which make it process much faster.
There is jetpack that was made especially for DARPA program that can help soldier on the battlefield. This jetpack will help them to be able to move faster. And, from the testing result, it can make someone run 20 seconds faster than that person fastest record time. According Jason Kerestes, leader of this project at Arizona State University, this will become the starting point of much better jetpack that can improve someone ability in the future.
One of cool ability of Superman is X-Ray vision. He can see through object. And, with RF Capture System that is created by MIT, this ability can be acquired. With this system, scientist that tries it can identify 15 people behind the wall. With 90 percent of accuracy of the vision, we can see that this will be tool that can be used like Superman’s ability. This system can also detect the movement of people behind the wall. So, we can say it’s pretty close to that ability.
Hulk is known with his super strength. And, science can give us, human, that strength as well. The fruit of science is called Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS). This robotic suit can give the wearer super strength likes Hulk. More than that, this suit is also designed to be bullet proof, so you will be also protected from the bullet.
Basically, today’s science can do much than most people might imagined. And, you don’t need to be surprised, if in the next few years, you can find many people walking on the street wearing Iron Man suit Or, patient that can cure themselves faster.
