It’s a classic tale of innovation, with a rather unusual ending. A big vision. A dream. Eventually achieved through learning and striving, and never being put off by a seemingly constant influx of failure. Instead, Richard found awesome and diverse people to collaborate with. Fuelled by the power of joy and passion, combined with a willingness to get their hands dirty, they went on to break convention and do something unexpected, exciting and new. In his talk, Richard will showcase how through creativity and dogged commitment, he has defied gravity, with his iron-man like suit. With pioneering technology, he is leading the way to becoming a true ‘rocket man’.
Dare to dream; dare to reinvent human flight.
Richard Browning is an ultra-marathon runner, an ex-Royal Marine reservist, ex-City Commodity Trader and a pioneering inventor. Richard is the Founder of human propulsion technology start-up Gravity. Launched in March 2017, Gravity has invented, built and patented an ‘iron man like’ flight system. The dream was to reimagine an entirely new authentic form of human flight leaning on an elegant collaboration of mind and body augmented by leading edge technology. Gravity has to date been experienced by over a billion people globally, with video views alone running at more than 60 million within 7 days of launch. Richard’s vision is to build Gravity into a world-class aeronautical engineering business, challenge perceived boundaries in human aviation, and inspire a generation to dare ask ‘what if…’.
