Video - See The Real Iron Man Jetpack That Can Actually Fly 1

At some point or another, you’ve wanted to be Iron Man. Or, more specifically, you’ve wanted to be Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. It’s okay to admit. He’s suave, witty, and he has that kick-ass suit. No one’s judging. Richard Browning, a 38-year-old Englishman, not satisfied with the fantasy decided to make his own working flight suit.

The intrepid inventor unveiled his creation recently, and while it’s no match for the films or the comics, it’s still pretty impressive.

Browning used an array of tiny jet engines attached to his body for thrust. He worked on the project for well over a year, tinkering with all sorts of variables until one day, he got it.

Nicknamed Daedalus, after the mythical Greek inventor, the exosuit could, in theory, lift its pilot more than 300 feet off the ground and at speeds up to 60 mph. But Browning’s no daredevil, and he’s not flown more than a few feet up at relatively modest speeds.

In time, he says, Browning will test longer flights. “There is also some parallel development going on with airbag and parachute technology to enhance safety and allow us to fly higher — for example, above water,” he told Live Science.

If you want your own suit, it will run about a quarter million. “It’s something you can buy instead of a Lamborghini,” Browning quipped. “It’s not intended for mass markets at this stage.”

Right now, steering is all done with the person’s own body strength. That’s no problem for Browning, an experienced ultramarathon runner, and callisthenic stuntman, but it certainly isn’t for everyone just yet.

While it’s cool to see modern tech edge a bit closer to the fantastical Marvel universe, truly matching the capabilities of Stark’s suit is almost certainly impossible. Power is the big killer. Even if you can make it in a miniaturized fusion reactor, the heat would vaporize you instantly. Oh damn, now I’ve made myself sad… This is why I’m bitter, no how cool something is, I always gotta poke holes.

But seriously, watch this stuff in action, it’s incredible.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 12

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 13

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?

At the moment, Oppo’s SuperVOOC is the fastest wired charger with its 50W speeds at 10V/5A, but Xiaomi is coming up something crazier and different that can charge a dead battery to 100% in just 17 minutes.

Here is a video posted by Xiaomi’s brand president Lin Bin, it shows a phone with 4000mAh battery charged fully in just 17 minutes.

Xiaomi has compared this to OPPO’s 50W (10V/5A) Super VOOC Charging that charges 3700mAh battery up to 65% in 17 minutes.

This was introduced as the world’s fastest smartphone charging tech that can charge the phone up to 92% in 30 minutes.

For comparison, Huawei’s upcoming 55W Super Charge fast charging technology for the Mate X’s 4500mAh battery will need just 35min to fully charge the device.

Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo technology is currently in testing stage and will take some time to reach the market… it will be announce few hours from now at an event.

An interesting move I must say, I feel this is a good innovation. I hope other companies adopt this technology quickly
