    As the title suggests, this book examines whether Iron Man could exist in the real world As with Michio Kaku s book Physics of the Impossible, answering the question involves defining the various meanings of impossible One way to parse the question is, Is Iron Man possible today given the existing state of technology In and of itself, this question is of limited interest because the answer is, no There s certainly a demand, and so if Iron Man could exist given current technology, he pr As the title suggests, this book examines whether Iron Man could exist in the real world As with Michio Kaku s book Physics of the Impossible, answering the question involves defining the various meanings of impossible One way to parse the question is, Is Iron Man possible today given the existing state of technology In and of itself, this question is of limited interest because the answer is, no There s certainly a demand, and so if Iron Man could exist given current technology, he probably would That s not to say it isn t interesting to learn about what technologies are holding us back and where the cutting edge of relevant technologies lies both of which are a...

    When I saw this in vine, I went back in forth this or something else.I mgeeky in that I love comics, robots, the concepts behind the things in this book Less nerd in that if you go all full on deep science and medical and math, you might lose me if it leads us down a long curving road of technical mumbo jumbo Would I understand what the heck a professor of neroscience had to say on the subject Thank goodness I did settle on this book and he realized not all of us are his students.In f When I saw this in vine, I went back in forth this or something else.I mgeeky in that I love comics, robots, the concepts b...
