If you’ve never seen any of Canadian super inventor and comic book geek The Hacksmith’s videos on YouTube, you need to check them out. His specialty is in making something he calls “Making it real” videos, where he tries to recreate tech from comic books and comic book movies. So far he’s built Batman’s grappling hook, batarangs and he’s on his way to building a powered exoskeleton that he’s used to lift cars with. He’s like a Canadian Tony Stark without the millions of dollars, ego, drinking problem and crippling PTSD.
He’s now turned his attention to making Captain America’s electromagnetic shield and gauntlet system, and so far it looks pretty cool!
We’ve broken down his process into some pretty cool gifs below.
