Don’t lie; you’ve always wanted an arc reactor embedded in the middle of your chest.
Marvel Morph Suits are now providing that chance for millions of people who want to dazzle at the next Comic-Con, or simply prance around as Tony Stark for the day.
Developed by Morph Suits, the company behind some of the most technologically advanced costumes on the market, customers will be able to pick a Marvel super hero of their choice, and with the help of a dedicated mobile app, make the costume come to life.
The costumes have been decked out with augmented reality aspects that give the costume wearer “virtual superpowers.”
According to Morph Suits official launch video, the virtual powers can be activated –and seen- when viewed through the mobile app. Everything from Iron Man’s short, fiery palm bursts to Spider-Man’s webs being slung around the room can be accessed and executed.
Gregor Lawson, co-founder of Morph Suits, told Digital Spy that it had been a dream of the company’s to design Marvel outfits, and they were easily the most requested costume pieces on the site.
“…we’ve had over 50,000 searches for Spider-Man alone on our website,” Lawson said.
Lawson further added that he and his team would like to see other well known super powers, like Spidey senses and Wolverine’s accelerated healing, become a part of the costumes as the technology progresses.
“We have added augmented reality markers that bring super powers to life – enabling wearers to virtually sling webbing from Spider-Man’s hands, fire repulsors from Iron Man’s palms or unleash Wolverine’s Adamantium claws. We haven’t quite cracked invincibility, Spidey senses or accelerated healing yet, but we’re working on it.”
As of right now, customers have the option to purchase an Iron Man, Spider Man, Wolverine, Captain America, or fan favourite Deadpool costume from the online store.
The costumes are already available to purchase, and run for approximately $90.
