If you are a fan of Batman movies or played Just Cause, you might know about it and thought “wow, the grappling hook would be so much fun.” YouTuber created this in real life, whose name is JT, thought so too — and he’s been working on building that for the past year. The end result is a grappling hook gun that works just similar to the ones we’ve seen in movies and games.
This new grappling gun is more awesome. For one thing, it’s self-contained — the entire unit fits on his arm, including the CO2-powered blasting mechanism that shoots the hook using standard cartridges, and a very powerful 10,000W motor that’s properly fast and can completely pull him up into the air. (He shows off some previous historical attempts to build such a gadget, and definitely seems like his hook would win the grappling gun race.)
Unlike some other DIY grappling hooks, JT’s gadget can also bring him back down to ground level. He can control his direction and speed with a scroll near his thumb. Check it out in the video below.
