Make it Real: Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer (Overwatch)
Every once in a while we like to take an idea from a video game… and make a real working prototype. On this week’s episode of MAKE IT REAL we’re building Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer — and then we’re going to test it out in the most destructive way possible!
