Indian Student Creates a Real-Life ‘Iron Man’ Suit That Can Lift 300 lbs

Vimal Govin Manikandan, an engineering student from India, has crafted an Iron Man suit capable of lifting as much as 300 pounds but costs as much as an iPhone 6s Plus.

The suit isn’t as pretty as Robert Downey Jr.’s, but it’s actually the fruit of Manikandan’s award-winning paper titled “A System and Method of Maneuvering Powered Exoskeleton Using Mechanical and Hydraulic Feedback.”
