  96. Erik

    Erik4 dögum síðan

    Video Idea: Links Hook Shot from The Legend of Zelda. Its essentially a gauntlet that when shot grabs on to something and pulls you towards it. In the games you can also use it to pull items towards you so even if you cant figure out how to make it pull a human it would still be a cool invention.

  97. Jeremiah Stager

    Jeremiah Stager4 dögum síðan

    I often wondered why the Mando armor had electronics behind it. Perhaps I am not the first to throw this idea out there, but maybe the stormtroopers aren't only hitting the armor, but the armor is pulling the energy pulse toward itself. (I am not suggesting that Disney is thinking this, but in practical fictional reality this might be what is going on)
