The invention of Daedalus includes a specially designed exoskeleton with six jet engines placed on the arms and behind the back and powered by aviation kerosene, as well as a protective helmet with a built-in display informing about the fuel supply. Takeoff takes place in a vertical position, and to control the flight, speed and direction, you need to use your hands.

Although, as noted by BBC reporters, the demonstration already took place outside the conference room. In the current version, the Daedalus provides 10 minutes of flight. As Browning emphasizes, his vehicle is “safer than a motorcycle,” and the suit itself is fireproof and even a fall with the subsequent ignition of the fuel will not harm the pilot. At the same time, the invention is only entertaining in nature, and while the Gravity startup developing the device does not plan to release the Daedalus suit as a personal flying vehicle.
