Did you grow up dreaming of being a superhero?

Well, your dreams may have come true, because a jet suit has gone on sale in London department store Selfridges for the bargain price of $443,428.

Made from five jet engines mounted on the pilot’s arms and back and also of electronics and 3-D printed parts, the suit is inspired by Iron Man, the marvel superhero played on-screen by Robert Downey Jr.

[post_ads]It also has a speed limit of 32 miles per hour and altitude limit of 12,000 feet, and was recently taken for a spin outside Selfridges, where it could be seen hovering just a few minutes above the ground.

Inventor Richard Browning said: This consume's about four liters a minute in the hover (position) so you can fly for three or four minutes quite easily and we have got another version — certainly on a cold day when you get more thrust, it’ll fly for about nine minutes. That’s something we’re looking to improve but it’s the inevitable consequence of flying without wings.

If you’re interested in seeing the suit, it can be viewed in Selfridges where you can also test out a virtual reality version. Buyers will also be given training on how to use it properly.

Browning continues: It’s actually surprisingly calm and not very violent. It’s very passive and gentle when you’re flying it.
