Bukan Cuma di Film! “Iron Man” Akhirnya Ada di Dunia Nyata

Telset.id, Jakarta – Perusahaan teknologi yang bermarkas di Inggris, Gravity Industries, mendapatkan paten untuk Jet Suit alias “baju terbang” pertama di dunia. Perangkat ini memungkinkan pilot terbang dengan kecepatan lebih dari 50mph seperti Iron Man dalam film Marvel.

Pendiri perusahaan, Richard Browning sebelumnya telah mendemonstrasikan jet suit hasil buatannya ini ke lebih dari 20 negara di seluruh dunia.

Bahkan dia mendapatkan Guinness World Record pada 2017 untuk kategori jet suit tercepat yang dikendalikan tubuh.

“Sejak meluncurkan Gravity pada 2017, kami tidak berhenti menantang status quo,” katanya.

Browning mengatakan paten tersebut merupakan tonggak bersejarah bagi Gravity Industries yang memungkinkan perusahaan untuk terus berinovasi dan menginspirasi orang lain.

A British company has been awarded what it claims is the world's first patent for a "jet suit". Gravity Industries' multi-gas turbine engine Jet Suit has been granted the right as the inventor of an apparatus enabling an individual to fly. Company founder Richard Browning has previously demonstrated the suit in more than 20 countries around the world and earned a Guinness World Record in 2017 for "the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit". He said the firm now hoped to launch a racing series based on teams using the suit to navigate courses. "Since launching Gravity in 2017, we have not stopped challenging the status quo," he said. "Restlessly pioneering developments in STEM, today's patent issuance is a giant milestone for Gravity which will enable us to continue to innovate and hopefully inspire others. "Our current priority is the launch of a Gravity Race Series in late 2019, which will see a new cohort of diverse pilots putting their flight skills to the test, competing in teams on courses around the world." The patent, issued by the UK's Intellectual Property Office, covers: "A wearable flight system with a number of propulsion assemblies including a left-hand propulsion assembly and a right-hand propulsion assembly worn on a user's hands and/or forearm. "Preferably a body propulsion assembly is provided with support for a user's waist or torso. Leg propulsion systems may also be provided." In documents that formed part of the patent claim, the company cited Marvel Studios' Iron Man character and his use of a wearable flight system which utilises propulsion units worn on the hands. The Jet Suit uses five gas turbines which collectively produce over 1,000 brake horsepower to gain flight, and can reach speeds of over 55mph. The firm said it was already in "advanced discussions" with possible host cities, broadcasters and sponsors over launching its race series in the second half of 2019.

“Prioritas kami saat ini adalah peluncuran Gravity Race Series pada akhir 2019, yang akan menumbuhkan kelompok baru dari beragam pilot yang menguji keterampilan terbang mereka, bersaing dalam tim dalam kursus di seluruh dunia,” katanya.

Jet suit ini menggunakan lima turbin gas yang secara kolektif menghasilkan lebih dari 1.000 tenaga kuda untuk dapat terbang, hingga mencapai kecepatan lebih dari 55mph.

Perusahaan mengaku sudah menindaklanjuti rencananya untuk membuat jet suit seri balap, dan mengajak kerjasama dengan beberapa kota yang memungkinkan menjadi tuan rumah dan juga pihak sponsor. [BA/HBS]
