Iron Man Tech Exhibit Lets You Become Tony Stark

Robert Downey Jr. suited up in front of the Hall of Armor in Marvel Studios' 'Iron Man 3'

If you get the chance to drive Iron Man's new armor, say yes. It's so choice. And if you have the means, we highly recommend you pick a suit up.

Disney invited us to preview the Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries exhibit, opening this weekend at Disneyland's Innoventions in Tomorrowland attraction. So we brought along our iPhone to Flikr, Instagram, Vine and Tweet the heck out of the experience, the results of which can be seen below.

The exhibit gives you an up close and personal look at an exact replica of Tony Stark's Hall of Armor, famously situated in the Malibu home of everybody's favorite "genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist." Inside the Hall are the first seven suits Tony developed -- from the Mark I he invented to escape the cave prison in "Iron Man" (2008), to the Mark VII he wore during the Battle of New York in "Marvel's The Avengers" (2012).

Of course after that battle, Tony discovered the need for a more space-friendly suit. And so he developed the Mark 42, the armor he wears in "Iron Man 3," and the suit that gets the most prominent display in the Iron Man Tech exhibit.

There's also a super cool interactive element of the exhibit that allows you to "Become Tony Stark." The somewhat Wii-like game is inspired by the new development in the Mark 42 that lets Tony attach each piece of the suit separately, via airborne propulsion. But unlike the Nintendo Wii, this game lets you see yourself onscreen, right up until your face gets covered by an iron mask.

Check out the social synopsis of the exhibit below. And remember, only three more weeks till "Iron Man 3" FINALLY opens wide!
