Solar System Express has teamed up with biomedical and information technology company Juxtopia to develop a new kind of suit that may allow extreme adventure enthusiasts to free fall from space.

The suit, which they’re calling RL Mark VI, will be designed to withstand extreme temperature and pressure changes. It will also come with an augmented reality display that will show the user’s vital signs as well as the external conditions. The suit will include rocket boosters to help ease the diver’s descent.
