Though it cannot fly, it can do lift upto 330 pounds. Made primarily for defence purposes, industrial weightlifting and for material handling, this wearable Iron Man suit was made by a Kerala Engineering student, Vimal Govind Manikandan using exoskeleton technology.
He was heavily inspired by various Hollywood action movies, especially Avatar, to build the Iron Man suit. He expressed his hope that the Indian Military would use this creation of his.

A thumping reception of the suit in his college.
And if you think this was the his first time building a structure like this, then you are wrong. Take a look at the below one, it was in 2015 where he came up with another massive structure. A genius indeed!!
