Youtube, its Cram. With the new ironman movie
out the question remains, is Ironman Possible in real life? Well it might be in the future,
but is it possible with today’s technology? Lets take bits and pieces and try to put them
together. Near the end of the Avengers you saw that ironman propelled himself into outer
space. In this environment, he is up against all kind so of hazards such as radiation,
temperatures near 2k, the vacuum of space, and more. His suit would need to regulate
all these things. Well, this is possible, but it is much bulkier than Ironman’s suit.
But assuming we had lots of funding, it could be made smaller and more compact. The main
problem is that the suit’s pieces fuse and unfuse without any apparent seal, but there
could be hidden seals which make it airtight, so the vacuum of space won’t affect him. His suit is like a bugs exoskeleton. It provides
him protection, but also enhances his abilities. This kind of technology is already in development
for the military, so it is quite possible. AlThough, I doubt it would look as good as
Tony Stark’s fashionable suit. Another thing is those beams he shoots from
his hands. Quote from the marvel Wiki “”high density muon beam … directed by magnets
and focused by electrostatic lenses.”. Muons are real, they are subatomic just like electrons
and neutrons. But, to generate this kind of blast, it would require an impractical amount
of energy. He flies using propulsion from his feet and
hands. This seems similar to the beams from his hand. Again, this amount of energy is
impractical. But say it uses normal fuel or compressed air. This would be a bit bulkier
than his suit, but there are jetpacks that serve this function, though not to the same
extent. In Iron Man 3, he experiments with a substance
he puts into his bloodstream, so he can telepathically control the suit. This incorporates bionanotech,
and long ranged communications. It is probably possible to have long ranged communications,
as the communication is not complex, it’s just “come attach to me”. But the bio part
could be complicated. We do have technology today that interacts with the nervous system,
in the form of prosthetics. But the real question is, would it be possible on the nanoscale? The display inside his helmet. This is quite
possible, using projection technology and glass. Google glass today probably uses a
similar concept. The missiles in his arm are also possible.
His arm technically should be a bit thicker, but you can cram missiles in there, and shoot
them. They wouldn’t be as powerful as shown due to space limitations, but they would roughly
have the same concept as normal missiles so it should work. Now the big question. Well, second biggest.
The arc reactor. Would it work? Well, it could be a miniature, self contained nuclear fusion
reactor. Not fission, but fusion. This is much more powerful. The only problem is the
stability and cooling issues as well as all that radiation. But since he is basically
supported by technology, he could use a strong electromagnetic field to divert the radiation.
And the suit could probably use a foreign liquid, which acts like a metal in which is
dissipates heat quickly. Now is the biggie. Will it work put together?
Yes, but sadly, not the way you think. First off, the suit would be extremely bulky, think
mini transformer. This is because of the energy requirements and the storage for missiles.
Not to mention the pressure suit and jetpack capabilities. So, short and sweet with no
candy coating, sadly no.
