How IRON MAN Suit made by Indian student from Kerala:

Vimal Govind Manikandan from Calicut University, Kerala and he has successfully built a working wearable Iron Man suit using exoskeleton technology. His design is inspired by Hollywood’s famous movies IRON MAN and AVATAR.

Vimal is currently persuing his final year Mechanical engineering from MES College of Engineering, Kerala.

We have already seen some Iron Man suit and the exact replica without machinery. If you want to buy an Iron Man suit you need to spend thousands of dollars and even the replica of Iron Man suits without the machinery can cost you $2-3000 approx.

But Vimal’s IRON MAN Suit is the cheapest working suit till now. The manufacturing cost of this Vimal’s prototype suit is around Rs 50,000/- or approx $750. That’s why it’s making so much buzz in the world of robotic

Indian Student Built Iron Man Suit- Technical Diary

Just like Tony Stark (from Iron Man movie) Vimal also hope that in the coming future this kind of technology will be useful for the army. The weight of this suit is  100 kgs approx and it can lift up to 150kgs with the help of battery-powered hydraulics. So, it can also be very useful for industrial use and even an ordinary human being can lift heavy things.

Does this Suit fly like Iron Man’s?

No, It doesn’t fly right now. It can only walk and do some hand movements as for now. However, the team is currently working on improving the sensors. This will allow it to perform more sets of commands.

Vimal’s paper on this project was selected from amongst applicants belonging to 13 countries. He was also awarded the first prize at ICMM 2016. The conference was held on the 13th & 14th January 2016 in Singapore.

    Indians are very capable of doing amazing things if only they are allowed to do what they want to do.
    Our education system is not up to date. Our teachers doesn’t understand anything out of the book. But it’s good to see students are coming forward and showing their skills.
