A team of engineers have been working on new ideas that look like they belong on the set of a Batman movie. The idea is to create a grappling like device, which can be fired up to a roof or balcony and support the bodyweight of the person climbing it. This is all part of a competition organised by the US Air Force.
According to the faculty adviser Greg Bishop, he said;
“Batman is cool because he has no special powers. He relies only on his strength and advanced technology. Here at BYU, we get to build that technology.”
“The Air Force wants to be able to go to higher heights, to new surfaces and to be able to do it faster. They’ve got to be able to still do that, essentially, with either holding a weapon or a communication device.”
