Flying Like Thor on a Motorized Zipline

Flying Like Thor on a Motorized Zipline

Gravity makes it easy to glide down a zipline, but traveling uphill requires additional energy. The guys from Hacksmith Industries built a motorized ziplining rig that allows riders to fly up to 81 km/h up the line.

Breaking Bad: Civil War

Breaking Bad: Civil War

The airport battle in Captain America: Civil War is one of the movie’s best scenes. Do you know what would make the fight even better? A dose of Heisenberg. Editor TortillaDelta13 did a bang-up job adding Walter White’s alter ego, turning Peter Parker into a meth-cooking Jesse Spider-Pinkman, and using pizza as a weapon.

Man-Ant and Man-Spider

Man-Ant and Man-Spider

Adam from North of the Border apparently got confused and got the names of two of Marvel’s superheroes backward. His Man-Ant and Man-Spider sculptures are two of his most disturbing creations to date, making the insects the hosts with human genetics taking over their bodies. It’s the human skin that really creeps us out.

Sculpting Yoda-Hulk

Sculpting Yoda-Hulk

After making a BB-8/Hulkbuster mashup, Adam of North of the Border imagines what it might be like if two of our favorite green characters combined forces. The figure features the muscular body of the Hulk with Yoda’s head, hands, and feet. Smash or do not smash. There is no try.

Soda Can Green Goblin

Soda Can Green Goblin

What does the Green Goblin have in common with a can of Sprite? Their vibrant green color, of course.

Making an Iron Spider Mask with Mechanical Eyes

Making an Iron Spider Mask with Mechanical Eyes

The eyes on Spider-Man’s mask typically have a fixed expression. But Sean’s Crafts took on the challenge of giving Spidey more visible emotion by making his eyes change shape. He started by making a mask from poster board, fiberglass cloth, resin, and wood filler. Then he rigged it with mechanical eye shutters controlled by a bike cable.

Anvil Into Mjolnir

Anvil Into Mjolnir

Thor’s mighty hammer can only be lifted by those who are worthy. Random Hands qualified for the feat by building their own Mjolnir, cutting apart an old bench anvil, attaching laser-cut decorations, lathing a metal handle, then covering it with wood and metal rings. Watching the grinder remove the old surface is so satisfying.

Sculpting Rocket Raccoon

Sculpting Rocket Raccoon

If we had to pick our favorite character from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, it would have to be Rocket Racoon.

Making Iron Man’s Laser Gauntlet in Real Life

Making Iron Man’s Laser Gauntlet in Real Life

In the Avengers movies, Iron Man’s armor packs laser gauntlets powerful enough to cut through steel. Hacksmith Industries wanted to know if they could make a real-life version that works just as well. The heart of the build is a 1500-watt fiber laser from a laser welder. They also used lasers to do all the fabrication.

Building a Sticky Web Shooter That Works

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.
