It looks like we have a real life Tony Stark on our hands. Inventor Richard Browning and his team at start-up, Gravity Industries, have created the Daedalus. It is basically a special suit that turns its wearer into a flying hero.

What’s the biggest paper airplane you’ve launched? I’ve noticed that they tend to get a bit flabby when you use bigger sheets of paper, but that didn’t stop the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona, from trying to fly a 45-foot-long paper airplane.
At first when you look at this strange looking kite, you’d think that it wouldn’t be able to get airborne, because of its shape and complexity. But this somewhat large, cubic structure is fully capable of flight.
The FAA has announced that it has cleared the Apple iPad for use in commercial flights in all stages of the flight by pilots. American Airlines has conducted tests of both iPad and iPad 2 for all phases of flight for the last 6 months, it has been deemed it safe for flight.
