‘Mythbusters’ Adam Savage Builds Mark 2 Iron Man Flight Suit. With the help of Colorado School of Mines, EOS, and Gravity Industries, Adam was able to construct the closest thing to the Iron Man suit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe with current technology.
It all started when Adam made an appearance at the Colorado School of Mines and met Craig Brice, who offered for Savage to create “something weird” with their 3D printer with the ability to make titanium prints. After some thinking he asked Brice, “How about a full suit of Iron Man armor?” to which Brice responded immediately with a resounding “Yes!”
The build will appear on Adam’s new show on Discovery, Savage Builds. You can check out this video from cNet with an up close look at Adam learning how to use a personal flight system made by Gravity Industries. Also featured is Gravity Industries founder and pilot, Richard Browning who suits up in Adam’s Mark 2 Iron Man Suit for a test flight. Watch it here:
The suit was made as thin as possible to compensate for the added weight. Adam wanted to go even further and test the titanium suit to see if it was also bullet proof, like the ‘real deal’. Check out Adam testing the build on his new show Savage Builds on Discovery.
Flying the Iron Man suit is one thing, and testing it’s structural integrity was super fun to watch, but Adam had to solve another big problem… where would he store it? You can watch him build a unique stand for the Mark 2 here:
Any Super Marvel fan dreams of one day owning a full blown Iron Man suit, and as technology advances we get close every day. Be sure to check out Savage Builds on Discovery every Friday night at 10 EST for a closer look at the newest engineering techniques and feats available.
