My name is James Hobson, a.k.a. the Hacksmith. While I’m a long-shot from being a real Tony Stark (I’m not a billionaire-inventor-playboy-philanthropist…just yet), I do love building gadgets and I really do plan on making some form of an exoskeleton suit...some day.

In the meantime, I’ve created this YouTube channel as a sort of record of my inventions/innovations/gadgets that I’ve designed or built over the years.

Enjoy! Hopefully you find something that inspires you to pull out the toolbox and start messing around!

For more information on why I do what I do, watch my TEDx talk below:
