How to Make the Best of Your Iron Man Gadgets
When I was a kid, my dad got me an Iron Man action figure as a Christmas present. It was the coolest gift I’d ever received and instantly made me a superhero fan as no other toy could. That original version of Iron Man had the classic, red armor with the glowing blue “iron-man” emblem on his chest. But what if you’re stuck without access to your own home base? How can you make the best of your gadget life? Make do and mend with this list of tips for making the most of your Iron Man gadgets.
Find a mentor or role model who inspired you.
If you’ve been following the Iron Man stories or watches, you’ve probably come across the name Aldrich Killian. Aldrich Killian is the tech lead for the reboot of the Iron Man franchise, which also happens to be one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. If you’ve ever wanted to know how to make a phone call, what setting to take a photo in, or how to best use a technology tool in your day-to-day life, Aldrich Killian is your guy. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or an adult, anyone who inspires you can help you take the next step in your personal development.
Try DIY projects where you can use your tools.
The Iron Man gadgets are all about blurring the line between technology and combat. You could try using your phone as an assault rifle or using your laptop as a chainsaw. It’s important to remember that the Iron Man items are toys, so you should make sure to take them out of the protective case when you’re not using them. This is important to protect the devices from damage and keep them from overheating.
Think of how to leverage the built-in camera and microphone
Hate having to take a picture of something important just to get ahold of someone? Or send a quick note and want to make sure the recipient knows you were there? You can do all of that and more with the Iron Man cameras and microphones. The remote camera can be used to take pictures of the surroundings and the action. There’s a speaker on the camera that you can use to communicate with other team members or the public. You can also use the camera to take notes, take pictures, and record voice messages. If you’re looking for a more hands-on way to use the camera, there are tons of apps for iOS and Android that let you remotely control the camera or take pictures with your phone. You can also use the Iron Man camera to record videos, take screenshots, and record audio with just a few buttons.
Practice makes perfect. Take self-defense classes.
People often think of superheroes as men in spandex, but there’s a huge community of costume-wearing ladies who make their own heroes. Like the men, these ladies wear special gloves that contain built-in sensors to help them navigate their high-crime neighborhoods. Instead of relying on others to help them, they can use their own high-tech gear to protect themselves. These ladies also tend to be more tech-savvy, which means they can use their gloves to connect to the internet, get weather updates, and access emergency and non-emergency services with ease.

Make use of other Iron Man gadgets like GPS, WiFi, and Ethernet cables
Having a static IP address is the bane of every Iron Man fan’s existence, right? If you’re unable to take your earth-moving gear or computer on a trip, you may have to deal with constant GPS interference and/or data rates that are too high for your cellular plan. Thankfully, there are a variety of tools and devices that can help you out. The first is a home gateway device that uses a modem and DSL/HSPA+ network to give you a more stable internet connection. You can use these devices to “RAID” your cellular data, reducing the overall amount of data you have to send and receive. These devices are often called a “GPS + Data” package, and they can help you out tremendously.
Don’t be afraid to ask online or from fellow fans.
When it comes to finding help for your gadgets, there are few things as effective as asking. Just search “how to make the most of my iron man gadgets” in a forum or forum group and you’ll quickly see what I mean. You may even find a friend who is looking to make the switches to the modern world and is looking for tips as well. Reddit is a fantastic place to find fellow fans who are also stuck without internet or phone service. You can also message fellow Redditors for help. If you’re looking for members in your area, you can also find them on the channel “Make it in America” on r/travel.
