Real-Life Batsuit Tested With Fists And Knives

Real-Life Batsuit Tested with Fists and Knives

That guy getting punched in the stomach? That's industrial design student Jackson Gordon, and he's made his own Batsuit.

According to USA Today (via Boing Boing and Robot 6), Gordon funded his homemade Batsuit via Kickstarter. Since then, he's been doing regular updates from his dorm room.

Gordon, who hopes to work in R&D, spent two months on the 11kg suit. "It sounds like a lot, and when you have it in a bag over your shoulder it weighs a ton, but when you are actually wearing it, you barely feel it," Gordon told USA Today, adding, "If this were to inhibit my movement, it would be completely useless."

Also, if it couldn't withstand punches? Likewise, useless.

    Looks like his virginity is safe for now...

      That is a bit mean.

      That cosplay that is also functional but.

      Passion, dedication and success in achieving his goals will ensure that's not the case.

      Snarky online comments however.....

      Nah, with the appropriate attitude, "I made my own knife-proof batman suit," will help get you laid.

      Ugh, oldest joke in the book mate.

    I think it actually looks pretty awesome. Reminds me a lot of the Kotobukiya design.

      Reminds me of The Doom that came to Gotham:

      or maybe even a little bit of Gotham by Gaslight:

    At least he isn't wearing hockey pants

    Makes me wish I had a skill that extended beyond mere words and numbers. Good job, fella!

    Some expensive titanium platting should solve the bullet issue, say around 5-8mm worth of thickness :)

    He will be very poor afterwards but!
