Popular Youtuber, mad inventor and British plumber Colin Furze has just released videos of his latest project – fully functioning Wolverine claws. He shows them off in a video where he laughs maniacally whilst slicing and dicing his way through everyday objects (and even a blow up version of X-Men villain Mystique). He has literally just fulfilled the wishes of so many young boys (and probably just as many adults too).
The plumber by day and inventor by night designed and manufactured the claws in his garage. He made them from stainless steel and set about with a few goals including the most obvious one, for them to well resemble Wolverines claws. He also wanted a smooth deploying and retracting system and after ruling out an air ram, cable system and a motor and toothed track system, he finally set on using a pneumatic assembly. He also wanted the blades to spread out as the weere deployed rather than remain parallel, to best replicate Wolverine.
