Since I am not as smart or as wealthy as Tony Stark, I will never be able to make my very own Iron Man suit. However, after seeing this fully functional fan-made Iron Man Gauntlet I do have some hope. This thing is simply awesome. Not only does it look realistic, it shoots frickin' lasers man!
It was built by Patrick Priebe, who describes it as follows:
Full metal gauntlet, runs on 1x 18650 plus 2x 14500 Li Ion cells.
2 blue lasers on board, 1.2W each, plus 2 4mW for aiming.
