This Engineer Just Built an Alternate Timeline Version of Captain America's Shield

One thing you can say about YouTuber James Hobson, aka The Hacksmith: He and his crew do nothing by half measures. Theyve built real-life versions of , (Mjlnir, if you please), and even .

This Guy Built a Real 'Captain America' Shield

Their takes on a slightly more obscure project: building Captain Americas arc reactor shield. The shield actually belongs to an alternate-Earth character called the Civil Warrior, who, after destroying the world in a battle with Iron Man, decided to take up the technology of his fallen comrade. So, naturally, the character sports a Captain America shield with Tony Starks blaster technology built right into it. (Comics!)

They have plenty of shields to choose from; in the video, Hobsons not afraid to show off his collectionand demonstrate the toughness of the finished version. (It can break through six patio tiles, in case you wondered.) With some CAD magic and an incredible dangerous blue laser, the shield is that much closer to being a reality. LED lighting, a metal backing plate, and a hefty power supply are all necessary to complete the look, and somehow the Hacksmith makes it all work. Check out if you want to see how.
