Make it real is a series where we take fictional items from comic books, movies, and video games and then make real working prototypes.
In this episode, we test our real working batman grappling hook and rappel device. Watch the Hacksmith rappel from the ceiling using the one handed rappel device and 2mm kevlar rope. Then it is time to test the grappling hook. To do that the Hacksmith latches it onto a joist, hangs upside down from it and then tries to pull himself off (150lbs of weight + 200lbs of squat = 350lbs with out budging). Next up we do a impact test by tying it to a bike and racing up the driveway – that might end up in a fail compilation video someday. Then we test the grappling hook by throwing it and climbing various things around the city.
