One YouTuber managed to replicate Batman’s grappling hook

It’s not Batman who wants, well almost. YouTuber Built IRL just developed a grappling hook inspired by that of the Dark Knight. In his last video, he is able to pull himself up several times, just by the force of his machine.

Batman can count on its heavy arsenal to fight crime. In addition to his Batmobile, the superhero has a grappling hook capable of hoisting him effortlessly on the highest buildings in Gotham. But now, if several fans have already tried to reproduce the accessory, no one had really arrived at a conclusive result. Built IRL on YouTube may well have found a way to seriously compete with the Dark Knight. In a series of 5 videos, he developed a grapple gun capable of hoisting the wearer above the ground. In his last video, he finally reveals his creation. After almost a year of design, he’s testing it for the first time and it’s pretty conclusive. In a climbing complex, he managed to hoist himself several meters above the ground, without any effort on his part. In the closing minutes of the video, he even manages to climb up a tree.

To develop his machine, he customized an aluminum frame to which he added a powerful electric motor designed for electric skateboards. There are then coiled 14 meters of paracord. This nylon rope was originally used for the lines of American parachutes during World War II and offers foolproof resistance. It is she who will allow the apprentice Batman to rise above the ground. Then a personality grapple launcher is added and supplied with 12 gram CO2 cartridges. To operate his device, he relies on rechargeable lithium battery nearly 50 volts. Finally, it added an analog throttle wheel to control its ascent and descent. To discover all the details of the construction of this gadget, you can consult all 5 videos devoted to the subject on his channel YouTube, at this address. Bruce Wayne definitely has some concerns.
