Inventor makes real-life Assassin’s Creed’s hidden blade and rope launcher, which seems way too perfect.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate came out last week and its main character Jacob Frye has got a wrist mounted rope launcher and a hidden blade.
Colin Furze, a British inventor who has passion of bringing gadgets from movies and video games to real life partnered up with Ubisoft to build two of the most popular gadgets from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
The hidden blade is not new for sure, for it has been in the Assassin’s Creed series from the very beginning. But the one Furze made, looks as perfect as it is shown in the game. The Rope Launcher, however is something new and the one made by Furze is powered with CO2 to launch the rope attached with a metal hook which is connected to a motorized retracting rope line which pulls him up.
The motor itself is powerful enough to pull anyone up but you really need to have a strong shoulder to do so. Furze has skipped the risk of putting his entire weight on just his shoulder and has used a harness to support his weight.
