For British “Iron Man” Richard Browning, the art of flight includes small jet engines and a full-body suit.

Browning is the founder of human propulsion technology startup Gravity, and this week at TED2017 in Vancouver, he wowed the crowd with a short flight around the terrace of the Vancouver Convention Centre.

According to Gravity’s website, the company was founded just last month, and describes itself as “a British technology start-up with innovation, endeavour and inspiration at its core.”

The company’s mission is “to build an inspirational technology company by re-imagining the future of human flight and pioneering aeronautical innovation.”

By the looks of it this week, they’re already well on their way.
