1 Iron Man By Caitlin Feeney May 24, 2010

2 Gesture Computing While creating the Iron Man suit, Tony Stark uses gestures to virtually move parts of the suit around

3 Gesture Computing Researchers at MIT have created a pair of multicolored gloves that when used with a webcam can allow a computer to identify gestures 5/lycra-gloves-computing-mit.jpg

4 Gesture Computing The gloves have 20 irregularly shaped patterns to allow the computer to get a 3-D configuration of the hand The gestures made are run against a computer database to identify the gesture Can it work in the world of Iron Man?

5 Gesture Computing In the movie, Iron Man, Tony Stark isnt wearing ridiculous gloves This could be made possible by the following explanation: If you want to make it more attractive, you could hide the patterns in a glove using retro-reflective material, he says. That way you could [create] differentiable patterns that wouldnt be visible to the naked eye but a cameras eye could see it. (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/05/gloves-gesture-computing/)

6 Flying Iron Man is able to fly for extended periods of time In one scene, Iron Man flies from the United States to Afghanistan poster.ws/movies/action/images/ironman/ironman-flying.jpg

7 Flying Although flying suits have been created, with the current technology available it is impossible to sustain flight for more than a few seconds The problem is that lifting a full- grown person 100 feet into the air considerably increases their potential energy, and that gain in energy must come from the stored chemical energy in the jet pack. Ditto for the energy required to zip around once airborne. You just can't store enough energy to make long flights without making the suit too big to wear.

8 Super Strength In Iron Man, Tony Stark is able to perform feats of super-human strength This is due to the structure of the suit

9 Super Strength Software engineer Rex Jameson has created a suit that gives him superhuman strength and endurance IN THE PAST SEVEN YEARS, A HANDFUL OF ENGINEERS HAVE TAKEN THE MILITARY'S 40-YEAR- OLD FANTASY OF MECHANICALLY ENHANCED SOLDIERS THAT CAN CARRY HEAVY LOADS AND BEGUN TO MAKE IT REAL.
