The US president, Barack Obama made a joke during a press conference earlier today, announcing at a White House manufacturing innovation event that America are building their own Iron Man, well sort of anyway.

Most of it was just fun and games, with Obama announcing the project as something the US has been “been working on for sometime.”

Interestingly enough there is actually some truth in the joke, as America are actually putting some of its budget into the development of smart armour for its solders.

Don’t expect to see the US military flying around anytime soon however.

Check out the video below for a quick look at the video.
