Throw a spider web like Spiderman, fly like Superman, go up in flames like the Human Torch... Are simple humans like us capable of such exploits? Can science help us accomplish these feats? Or are they just childhood dreams? To get to the bottom of this, Matière Grise has conducted an investigation and met with researchers and inventors of technologies that could make (or, in certain cases, have already made) this dream a reality! Prepare to be amazed! Just as amazing are the state-of-the-art technologies that are bringing us ever closer to the exploits and body armor of Iron Man. So, are super-heroes just part of science fiction? As you will see in this “Special One” feature,  those who are trying to bring their dreams to life might not be so crazy after all... 


Debate with :
