You can imagine what happened next, although you could skip all that imagination time and just click the jump to find out what really happened. (more…)

The_Wolverine_Claws

Let’s face it. We have all, at one point or another, put meat skewers or sharp bladed utensils in between our fingers and pretended we were Wolverine. Well bub, it’s time to put the kebab sticks away. You can now (if you have a 3D printer) build your own retractable Wolverine Claws!

Advancer Technologies have released a spiffy video, as well as complete step-by-step instructions, that will enable you to make your own set of Wolverine claws. They call them “Bionic Claws” so they don’t get sued, but that doesn’t stop them from playing X-Men music during the video though! The retractable feature is done with a technology they’re developing called MyoWare, a fourth-generation muscle sensor.  (more…)
