Richard Browning stands before a crowd of people. Suddenly, the roar of engines fills the air. The crowd erupts in cheers as Browning’s feet lift off the ground. He’s flying!
Is Browning a superhero? Not quite. But he can fly thanks to a suit he invented, called the Gravity Jet Suit.
The invention looks like a high-tech backpack equipped with arm sleeves. The suit includes five small jet engines. These allow Browning to fly up to 90 kilometers (56 miles) per hour. That’s almost as fast as a car on a highway!
For the past two years, Browning has been showing off his suit around the world. It’s a thrill every time, he says. “You feel this huge power at your fingertips,” says Browning.
