YouTuber Creates Real-Life Spider-Man Web That Actually Works

Not so long ago, we showed you a guy who'd made his own, fully functioning grappling gun. And yeah, it was pretty cool. A little clunky, not very sleek, but undeniably cool. This, however. This is something else entirely - and it's about as close as we've seen anyone come to doing whatever a Spider-Man can.

YouTube channel Built IRL - the same team behind that grappling gun - has put together a frankly ingenious piece of kit that allows the user to 'shoot' webs just like Peter Parker does (other Spider-people are available). The contraption is a kind of ring peripheral that the user can swing a super-thin rope from, adorned with some carefully positioned hooks. From there, it's time to swing. Its makers promise viewers that the 'shooting' of these webs is coming, in the next video. But for now, take a look...

Go on, have a watch of the Built IRL take on Spider-Man's webs, below.

Now, I know what you're thinking: that's not really all that much like Spider-Man, is it. Well, I hate to break this to you, but Spider-Man is fictional, and most superhero powers aren't all that grounded in the real world. Dang, huh? Nevertheless, this is some impressive engineering, and there's no doubting its effectiveness. Wanna swing around a city like Spider-Man? With this, you could.

In absolutely related Spidey news, we've heard that Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin could be making an appearance in the next movie, No Way Home; and that the sequel to the excellent animated feature Into The Spider-Verse will star Issa Rae as Spider-Woman. We approve.
