President Barack Obama recently announced two new manufacturing innovation institutes led by the Defense Department, and in doing so, made specific reference to Iron Man. 

Obama held a press conference where he announced the new initiative, jokingly adding, "Basically, I'm here to announce that we are building Iron Man."

Laughter ensued as a result of the remark with Obama continuing.

"I'm going to blast off in a second. This has been a secret project we've been working on for a long time [laughter]. Not really. Maybe. It's classified," the president said.

The official announcement (No. They are not really building Iron Man.) reads in part:

The winning Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation Institute team, led by EWI, brings together a 60-member consortium that pairs the world’s leading aluminum, titanium, and high strength steel manufacturers with universities and laboratories pioneering new technology development and research, officials said. Its long-term goal will be to expand the market for and create new consumers of products and systems that use new, lightweight, high performing metals and alloys by removing technological barriers to their manufacture.
