'X-men' wannabe creates 'walk on ceiling Magneto boots'
A plumber from Lincolnshire and 'X-men' lover, Colin Furze, has created 'Magneto' magnetic shoes that let allow him to walk on the ceiling of his workshop.
The 34-year-old YouTuber, who earlier made some pretty realistic Wolverine claws, uploaded a video about making the boots, where he is seen building the magnet in the shoes using a microwave transformer, with one of the coils removed, and hooking it up to a car battery, CNET reported.
He then attached the custom-made plates to the magnets with straps that wrapped around his shoes, and finally created switches for each shoe that could cut the current and help him to move one foot in the front of the other.
