Guy Creates Captain America’s Shield Out of Titanium, Tests It Against Real .45-Caliber Bullets

Via Core77

Jerry Miculek is a professional competition shooter who holds world records for speed and accuracy. To create the latest video for his well-trafficked YouTube channel (510,000-plus subscribers), he commissioned an impressive-looking replica of Captain America’s shield. Miculek went with titanium since the “vibranium” it’s made from in the comic books is of course fictional. Then he decided to test it out with live fire:

The titanium holds up pretty well, though the same can’t be said for the paint. Which makes me wonder: In the movies you occasionally see battle damage on Captain America’s shield, but they never show us how he touches it up between battles. What do you think he uses?

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. The vibranium is a self-healing material, obviously :p
