On this episode of Make It Real, we’re going to make Captain Americas electromagnet shield. All right so originally we were going to make our own electro magnets using a microwave oven transformer like this and they’re really powerful but we decided to go with a more professional solution and we used the commercially available electro magnet instead and these guys are strong, at just 12 volts this will produce about 120 kilograms of lifting force and we’re planning on running at a much higher voltage which means it will be even more powerful. Let’s start building. It’s pretty strong! Ooh, what if I let go? Now we’re running these electromagnets at 66 volts each, which means they’re actually going to be producing 660 kilograms of lifting force per electromagnet. Now despite that we’re still not going to be able to attract the shield from the same kind of distance as shown in the Avengers. Now the reason that won’t work is because magnetic force decreases exponentially over distance which means the amount of power you’d need to tract the shield from that kind of distance would be astronomical. You’d probably need an arc reactor just to power those electromagnets, so even though we have over a thousand kilograms of lifting force at the magnet at a few feet away it drops off to almost nothing Now that’s just a plastic shield so we reached out to Machina props and they made us a real replica. Take a look. Isn’t that awesome? Now to be Captain America you don’t just need a shield, you need a jacket too so sleekhides helped us out. To learn more about either of these products, there are links in the description. They are awesome! Well that’s how we made it. Subscribe to see the next video where we test this thing to its limits. yes Dude you even bounced it off the walls that was some straight up cap attack

    So Hacksmith, BIG FAN and I also enjoy your work immensely. I remember you talked about needing something as powerful as an arc reactor, well couldn't you connect your electro magnet to you arc reactor then you'd be able to pull the shield to you from a longer distance

    Power the captain America shield with your arc reactor you made like you suggested in this video
    It probably won’t be as strong as suggested in the video but it probably will be an improvement

    Also try making the infinity gauntlet infinity war/endgame
