Real-Life Batsuit Finished, Can Take A Beating

Real-Life Batsuit Finished, Can Take A Beating

Industrial design student Jackson Gordon, who we saw in February putting his actual armoured batsuit through testing, is now finished. And it doesn't just look the part, the thing actually works.

While it's not bullet-proof, the suit does show off its ability in this video to save you from loads of stuff less instantly hazardous, like knives, punches and kicks to the stomach.

The key to the suit's effectiveness isn't just the armour plating; it's easy to cover yourself in plating and get into a fight. Jackson's suit is designed to function like the one in the Chris Nolan films, in that half the work is done by the armour's ability to absorb and disperse the impact of a hit across the suit, which doesn't just keep you alive and on your feet, but lets the wearer maintain balance so they can strike right back.

Gordon's suit was made for $US2000 via a Kickstarter campaign, and weighs just 25 pounds,

    looks good but it all the strikes were directed onto the plating, there no kicks or stabs to sides ad the sleave was just slashed not stabbed

      Terrible punching form as well. Nothing but light jabs.

    Also whoever is doing the Kick in the gif really needs to work on their form, not even connecting with the right part of the foot.

    10/10 would win in a fight.

      Wouldn't even need the armour if the other guy was going to fight like the guy in the clip.

    Look at those spectacular moves, it's like a mix between Jet Li and Tony Jaa.

    They should try setting a big dog on him, like in the movie.
