  • Awesome!🥳

  • Colin Furze has already built a At At full size ..??? .

  • Can this thing fly

  • Chandra stinkfly

  • Why not make it bipedal

  • The US army would like to know your location

  • Possibly the most useless/coolest skid steer ever

  • What this missing is cable management

  • Anyone else feel like the NSA is watching him based on his amazon orders?

  • Please sponsor my videos on your next video????

  • thats not a powerloader

  • Oof those scripted convos felt so awkward to watch 😬 but damn your some amazing engineers

  • They could have bought 2 vkbs joysticks for half the price, id bet money on the reason they bought those Virpil sticks is cuss they look sorta like xenomorphs 🤣

  • imagine what other cooler things these guys could build if they were millionaires 💯

  • Wow 👏

  • 69k like, Noice

  • Out of curiosity, I wonder exactly what concerns he has at 5:40 about a Raspberry pi or an Arduino?

  • Not only will this kill you but it will hurt the whole time you're dying. Priceless warning.

  • I am extremely envious of all these god-level Nerds, to learn and have fun, to inspire countless people worldwide with their legacy. To make a career path of your own design. Each and every person at Hacksmith Industries, thank you. You are all amazing individuals.

  • Ya’ll should make a real steel robot

  • Revaluation technology it can be good for carrying heavy stuff it lives up to its name

  • Anyone else kinda laughing at the fact that they allow download to their models, acting like us normies would be able to replicate this masterpiece?

  • Charismatic they are not...

  • But is it gonna be useful or just really cool? Like a fork lift can pick up pallets from ground etc

  • Me see logo R.F. : Russian federation firever!!!)))

  • imagine if an alien comes

  • That's like the prawn suit

  • Still think the pinchers/grippers should be on screw rods. Would be fast acting and less weight

  • I love watching your builds and videos makes me want pick up my love for engineering..... but may I offer a No Man's Sky themed videos maybe make a 1/10th scale ship from the game or one of the many space suits you can get in the game idk just an idea

  • Great video to watch before asking a gal out. 5 minutes of this and anyone is going to feel like a smooth talker. But seriously though... why do they sound like they've had their minds taken over by aliens and those aliens haven't worked all the bugs out yet.

    • @Hacksmith Industries With all due respect I wasn't entirely sure if you were, or if you were being intentionally awkward for comedic value. Heck I'm still not entirely sure. Was much of why I originally made a joke out of it. Apologies if I caused undo offense.

    • You really don't think we try?

    • @Hacksmith Industries Have you ever considered putting a person behind the camera and talking to them? :P I like the content but there is a certain level of awkwardness that definitely does detract from the vibe. It's a bit like trying to watch Napoleon Dynamite sell me gym shorts. I only say this out of love for the channel. You guys put so much effort into the builds and film editing that I just really wish you'd drop the infomercial routine and loosen up. If you guys can't act that's fine... don't act, just ditch the script and talk to us.

    • Have you ever tried talking to a camera?

  • 11:51 The pinnacle of humor

  • Would you guys be willing to try to proto a working APU (Armored Personal Unit) from the Matrix? But here's the twist, it has to shoot lasers or Nerf darts?!?!?!? Your Choice!!

  • Imagine getting stick drift on the controller

  • I like your manic words wizard man

  • I got thinking what if they started doing custom jobs for people? I mean the have all this equipment and with the SLflow income Plus their clients, they would make quite a bit of money.

  • This guy must make a ton of cool ideas and inventions

  • It's like Project Binky for cosplay.

  • they are bringing my dreams to life

  • I am waiting for 4 weeks

  • 15 episode please

  • Dudes gonna make titan fall a real thing

  • Hopefully one day in the future these will be everywhere. and they will look back at this series as Art!

  • The real question is : when will this baby be available on the market and mass-produced? 😆

  • Great 👍

  • "I like your funny words magic man"

  • One day Hacksmith will be able to build the hulk buster suit no doubt

  • I feel like I sound like a total ass saying this, but do you guys have any plans for cable management on the power loader? when you were testing the 360 capabilities on the hand I got a little worried the hydraulic lines might pop off. Since noticing that, the loader looks a little Spaghetti Monster-ish. Serious kudos to everyone at Hacksmith, this has to be one of the coolest things being built on earth right now, can't wait to see how you guys use it to help with other builds/inventions also

    • @Hacksmith Industries wow what a quick response time, thanks for the info, cant wait to see what you guys do next!

    • yeah, it's no where near done lol. going to be doing a lot of hard lines, back still needs a dedicated valve array, oh and all the valves need to be replaced lol

  • I like his vids so much keep on going!!!

  • 10 years later : in other news US troops has finally break through the last defenses of china military but using a new type of war Machine

  • Hacksmith in a year be like Building a Tank part 1

  • Give it legs

  • Nice Content

  • Please do fast work on this project i am waiting from 3 weeks

  • give us the protectrion from Fallout 4 already🥳

  • I have a possibly impossible challenge: Gunhed, from the movie of the same name. Clearly inspired by James Cameron, and not completely outside of possibility. You may need a slightly larger garage though.

  • hacksmith you should do forged and fire you'd win of course

  • I love the idea. And I must say that it's massive. It's even bigger than my 2 or 2.5m tall animatronic. And I want to ask. When is part 15 coming?

  • Don't u guys think it's time for the next power loader video ಠಿ_ಠ

  • It looks simultaneously immensely powerful and fragile like ceramic.

  • Wait it's been so long since I've seen I vid from hacksmith and thay are done I the last vid I've seen about this big robot it's whan thay were working on the hand's

  • 4:14

  • Everybody gangsta until the mech winks

  • Can you do Grey fox helmet

  • 1K Xenomorphs disliked this video!

  • 12:33 cyber truck just chilling

  • Imagine these guys coming together in an apocalypse, like damn

  • I think as an Xmas bonus, James should take all these guys to the Bunny ranch so they can see and touch their first ever boob...... providing it doesn't have the same effect as Samson loosing his hair. We can't afford all that geek power being lost once they see and touch an actual boob!

    • In your opinion! That’s the beauty of humour, it’s relative. Just because you don’t find it funny, does not mean it isn’t. It takes one person to find something funny, to make it so 😘🤣

    • That's the point... geeks don't get women is so old it's not even funny any more...

    • I think people need to be reminded of what a sense of humour is in this day and age. Jeez, youngsters today are right snowflakes, offended and cry about everything, that’s ridiculous FFS.

    • I think people should seriously give up the whole "nerds don't see women" schtick... it's ridiculous

  • Emergency stop buttons are a bad idea. Alien will figure it out and press the button and you're toast.

  • It needs to walk. That is all.

  • They should make the hands modular that way they can have those grippers as well as other things like a rail gun or something

  • Жаль, что откащались от ног(

  • make a toy one with the eyes too

  • Wow I just binge watched the entire series

  • Make it a hulk buster plz

  • Ohh sick is that builder pro

  • ⚠️⚠️⚠️ PLEASE READ THIS IDEA!!! Make a heads up display and attach it to sensors so that is shows statistics: such as gas amount, etc., and alerts when something gets messed up: such as a short circuit.

  • Pls do the fire swords from obsidian fury in pacific rim

  • wait a second at 1:25 i can see that he has the same computer as me

  • Beautiful mechanical and electrical engineering. WITH THE WORST WELDING I'VE EVER SEEN!!!

  • Fun to see a fellow Deutsch connector user 😉

  • Este canal es genial

  • Can you build a transformer

  • I am reminded that after the debut of the Aliens power loader, there were actual construction companies asking where they could get one.

  • These people will be the real life SkyNet

  • The effort, skills and talents show in this build are really inspiring. And amazing.

  • Wow

  • Bet its gonna be on the news

    • this smells like the birth of a mobile suit from mobile suit gundam

  • Wow. Great progress guys!

  • Here's a hard suggestion, make the hulk buster

  • Bro, it’s things like these that make you wanna be an engineer. I don’t know if this is Mechanical Engineering, Robotic Engineering, I just wanna build something like this. 🤩

  • As an Electrician I can say from experience; bending ridged pipe is even harder than it looks here. LOTS of cuts and edits of the re:re:re:re measuring, deductions, and calculations needed. Great work!

  • The effort, skills and talents show in this build are really inspiring. And amazing.

  • Terminator Skynet: make it real

  • I really like the variety of commenters and camera shots that you guys take, keep up the great work.

  • massive machine go brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • Ok Bogdan I see you with one of the funniest skits on this channel

  • Always loved and enjoyed this channel this is one of the reasons that I have been adamant that I want to be an Engineer

  • The effort, skills and talents show in this build are really inspiring. And amazing.

  • I just wanna know if this is for show or will it legit work for commercial use?

  • this smells like the birth of a mobile suit from mobile suit gundam

    • Allen pan is gonna give this a 2/10 rating and then Make his own crappy version with a 10/10 rating
