Make It Real: Torbjörn’s Turret (Overwatch)

The celebrated Swedish engineer Torbjorn — from the Blizzard game Overwatch — lays low his foes in-game with the assistance of his upgrade-able turret. That has ‘Make It Real’ written all over it for Hacksmith Industries. So, what do you do when an ambitious new employee wants to build Torbjörn’s autonomous turret? You damn well let them build Torbjörn’s autonomous turret!

Spearheading the build, Bogdan managed to resurrect a broken stage gimbal that had been languishing in the corner of the shop, shrouded in unfulfilled potential for a few years. With his command of technological wizardry, swift work was made of the turret’s tech hurdles. The necessary application of fire was not forgotten during the process.

Behold!- the materialization of Bogdan’s prowess!

After playing around with EDFs (electric ducted fans) for the Iron Man Flight project, the Hacksmith has already tested using EDFs for propulsion on both a bicycle, and a longboard!

With winter well underway, he’s successfully implemented the EDFs onto a snowboard, for high speed fun in the powder. Capable of speeds of over 40km/h, it can even go up slight inclines, though gathering momentum first certainly helps.

On this week’s episode of Make it Real, we made Wolverine’s Adamantium claws for the release of the movie Logan! They really work, and are better than CGI effects.

Unfortunately we’re not biomedical engineers so we weren’t able to make them come out of our hands… But they can be used to recreate many scenes from the movies — without the need for CGI!
