Man Makes A Real Life Assassin's Creed Rope Launcher

When you’re warned by TV shows or games to ‘not try this at home’ usually everyone follows the advice because, well, you’d be a bit of an idiot not to.

Well, an inventor named Colin Furze didn’t follow this advice and that’s because he’s a bit of a genius.

As part of a promo for Ubisoft, the inventor built an actual real life rope launcher gauntlet like the one in Assassin’s Creed. It uses a carbon dioxide canister to propel the line, and a motorized winch to hoist you up.

And it really works – albeit with the help of a harness because without it your arm would almost certainly be ripped from its socket which would make fights with mysterious clandestine organisations a lot harder.

Oh, and he’s also built the hidden blade as well, in case you need to slash anyone to ribbons.
