Ep. 09 Iron Man’s Armor

Iron Man’s Armor

Arguably one of the coolest technical marvels in the fictional universe (no pun intended), Tony Stark’s suit is actually a hybrid of several advanced systems: Propulsion, communication, weapons, and protection. While making the whole may be extremely difficult, it turns out that we have created several of the individual pieces. We talk about the R&D cost of making the suit, the importance of an air foil, and Ben quotes Snoop Doggy Dogg.

UPDATE: I just came across this awesome video, which while not actual Pule Cannons, is still pretty close. We didn’t discuss on the show, but should have!
