Homemade Flying Iron Man Suit

Homemade Flying Iron Man Suit

JLaserVideo has been trying for years to build a version of Iron Man’s armor that could actually fly. After a major failure, he’s finally achieved that dream. He started out with a pair of custom electric jets but settled on a ridiculous number of smaller electric motors. And when the suit isn’t being worn, its parts fly to him.

Jake Laser wishes he could run as fast as Usain Bolt. But he’s never going to achieve that goal without some mechanical assistance. So he got to work figuring out the best way to increase his running speed through a series of experiments with jets, a windsurfing wing, low-friction shoe soles, and lots of practice.

Walk on Water Shoes

Walk on Water Shoes

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could walk on water? With a lot of trial and error, JLaservideo designed and fabricated a special pair of shoes that let him stroll above the surface. They use powerful electric motors and propellers to push the wearer up out of the water. Maintaining balance is clearly the trickiest part.

Climbing Walls and Ceilings Like Spider-Man

Climbing Walls and Ceilings Like Spider-Man

JLaserVideo loves to make costumes and gadgets that replicate those in superhero movies. To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, he created a set of special vacuum sleeves that stick to smooth surfaces like walls and ceilings. The video culminates with him using them to climb a 14-story building.

Building an Iron Spider-Man Suit

Inspired by the nanotech “Iron Spider” suit seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, JLaservideo wanted to see if he could replicate Spidey’s instantly-appearing, eight-legged outfit. J’s suit hides its appearance beneath a thermochromic pigment, and has inflatable tentacles that unfurl like those party horns.

Making a Captain America’s Shield Bounce

Making a Captain America’s Shield Bounce

Captain America’s shield possesses some impressive, but implausible physical characteristics. In addition to its near indestructibility and ability to absorb energy, it can bounce off of surfaces and come back to Cap. JLaservideo wanted to see what it would take to replicate the shield’s key features, including its ricochet.

Making Working Doc Ock Arms

Making Working Doc Ock Arms

In the world of Spider-Man, Dr. Otto Octavius (better known as Doc Ock) has been augmented with a set of mechanical tentacles he uses for nefarious purposes. JLaservideo teamed up with a few internet friends to design and build a working tentacle backpack, and then gave it mind-control capabilities.

Making a Sword Belt

Making a Sword Belt

Inspired by the Jackie Chan movie The Spy Next Door, maker JLaservideo created a sword that stores like a belt. The tempered steel weapon works like a tape measure, bending around his waistline, then maintaining a semi-rigid shape when deployed. We’d be afraid of cutting ourselves pulling it out of its sheath.
