  • with the iPhone XS maxes, we're gonna see if they survive being shot by the
  • world's most powerful leaf blower
  • OK what are we doing today?
  • I got an arm
  • Today we're gonna build the world's largest and most expensive leaf blower
  • in the world
  • we've got a 8 inch concrete cardboard tube
  • we've got some carbon fiber that we can wrap it with and of course we have a $5,000 custom EDF
  • from Schubeler, that we originally got for the flying like Iron Man project
  • So let's slap it together, make some handles, add some batteries
  • yep
  • And put on an Iron Man costume and then blow all the neighbors leaves
  • Mugs
  • Thank you
  • Attach the tube on here, attach a handle on here and then
  • We're going to wrap the brand-new lithium-ion batteries from Energus
  • Around the outside of the tube
  • you grab the batteries and figure out just how many of these we need
  • One of there will be able to provide the current
  • but we're going to need 14 cells of these to supply the voltage
  • Don't hit it
  • its carbon fiber Bogdan
  • Look at my 8 inch tube
  • this video is sponsored by Casetify
  • Casetify makes the slimmest
  • most protcctive phone cases with a 2X military-grade protection and
  • we're going to test to see just how protective they really are
  • Gonna do the drop test, two meters. There we go.
  • No problem
  • You can find the case that's
  • perfect for you by choosing from cute, trendy, or classic pre-made designs or
  • custom design your very own. They made us some awesome Hacksmith cases for these tests

  • to save 20% off your first iPhone case
  • Now for the fun part
  • Casetify asked us to test their case on a new iPhone XS with one of our projects
  • so that's exactly what we're going to do. Stick around to the end of the video to
  • see us launch these iPhones out of the finished leaf blower
  • That is so frightening
  • Time to figure out this carbon fiber
  • So do any of us know how to do this
  • Nope
  • Squish it
  • Hey it worked!
  • oh it's square
  • Alright that turned out pretty good
  • Hello
  • this is genuinely like frightening to watch.
  • yeah I mean this thing's gonna be our
  • leaf blower forever right? Our $5,000 company leaf blower
  • The thing is this can be
  • used to clean up all of our smashy stuff because this will easily blow off like
  • glass or whatnot
  • Did it work
  • Let's make sure this fits first of all
  • it doesn't
  • of course
  • Gotta make sure the batteries fit right?
  • That's a good point
  • one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen
  • And fourteen! Perfect
  • geez that's gonna break really fast
  • yeah
  • even cut another ring
  • Even just super glue it on
  • Follow us on Instagram
  • Why don't you just plasma cut a ring of metal
  • and another ring of metal
  • Because we would need something that is conductive
  • and iron is terrible at that
  • that's why we you use steel
  • Riley what do you think steel is made out of?
  • I mean there's some iron in it
  • okay
  • Ya why don't we just plasma cut a cool **** like
  • Oh wait no
  • Nevermind
  • Why?
  • I made a dumb dumb
  • why?
  • Because it would connect all the batteries in series and parallel at the same time
  • Whatcha doing Bogdan?
  • Figuring out how to fix this whole thing
  • Alright Bogdan made the new thing that should be stronger than that one
  • Does it fit?
  • Yes
  • Explain to the viewers why this is so dangerous
  • well see this is the positive end of the battery and this is the negative end
  • in this battery each one of these can output 800 amps
  • So just dropping a washer right in between there would cause a big spark and probably weld itself
  • So don't drop a washer than
  • Alright so that's actually a really good question
  • what would happen if we shorted the terminals of this battery with a washer
  • let's see
  • Alright just bring your face a little closer
  • No
  • This is such a bad idea, I love it
  • These batteries are actually incredibly safe
  • Each cell is actually fused at the end so
  • hypothetically it's gonna draw as much current as it can
  • And we'll record that right there
  • And then hopefully they'll just like melt at the ends of the battery
  • Yeah yeah sure
  • So I wanna make sure I can
  • Oh that's getting hot
  • Oh okay so we've got some smoke from the plastic
  • See all the fuses melted and now the current cannot pass through
  • Alright so it survived being shorted
  • What would happen if we hit it?
  • Okay boss!
  • It's happening
  • You missed
  • It's going in the garage
  • okay so I calculated the CFM of what the Schubeler would be outputting
  • At its peak, which is probably what we'll be running it at
  • About 4.500 CFM, which is cubic feet per minute.
  • So then I looked up with the most powerful
  • Ummmmmm uh....
  • leaf blowers, the backpack ones are
  • and they're about 900 CFM, so we're in a different range of
  • almost 5x more powerful
  • actually exactly 5x more powerful
  • Yeah, just about
  • Okay Bogdan so since this thing is so dangerous how are you gonna make it saferer
  • Okay so what we are going to do
  • Take a photo of this
  • make a pattern of that shape there
  • And then go shuuuuuuuuuup all the way around
  • And plasma cut?
  • Laser cut.
  • Plasma cutting would be a terrible idea
  • laser cut a plate to go on top of that to basically make a
  • spacer and then an acrylic plate to go over all of it so that nothing can come
  • in contact with these two and they'll still be transparent
  • Watch your ring
  • Watch that ring, engineering rings can kill you
  • where's the fire extinguisher
  • Yeah it works
  • There you go Bogdan
  • Imagine dropping a wrench between any two of those
  • that's why I brought the fire extinguisher up
  • Oh yeah
  • Is there any CO2 in this
  • No?
  • I know I said a bigger Arc Reactor wouldn't make a difference but
  • It's a bigger arc reactor
  • It's way too big bra
  • bra bra your triangles, too big bra
  • all right let's laser! I mean plasma-cut!
  • Thor's hammer is so useful
  • not only is it heavy, it produces what?
  • 24 kg of thrust?
  • yeah, so there's also gonna be like
  • 50 pounds pulling back, like seriously like, if I tried holding this and turning it on
  • I can't resist that
  • Why do we make everything so heavy?
  • okay yeah we need a strap in between because literally this will just push
  • itself away from the battery
  • we are ready to do a quick little test
  • We should really test this thing first
  • And figure out that it's in the right mode and everything
  • There's gonna be a spark? ready that's part it's
  • Pardon?
  • Gonna spark?
  • Gonna spark?
  • Is it going to spark?
  • I have no clue
  • Probably
  • Yes
  • Most definitely actually yes
  • Here we go
  • Is is blowing the right way?
  • Yup
  • minimum power
  • so what happens if you unplug that
  • Wanna try?
  • Ok let's plug this back in
  • And it stays the same power
  • Sweet that means this button will work perfectly
  • We actually have a more detailed electronics diagram which you can check
  • out using the link in the description below to visit our project on maker.io
  • It works!
  • This will blow you away you might want to get a shoulder strap
  • Is that going to hold?
  • that's going to hold 24kg of thrust plus the weight of this thing?
  • There we go, there's nothing that could possibly go wrong
  • That's like not even 10% power
  • You wanna go outside?
  • I guess so
  • bye-bye leaves
  • That's still only like 10% power
  • Alright so we're outside now with the iPhone XS maxes and we're gonna see
  • if they survive being shot by the world's most powerful leaf blower
  • I'm gonna start recording a video on the phone
  • Hopefully it survives
  • And it's still recording
  • There's a bit of dirt on it
  • alright so let's try that again, we're gonna hit record
  • Jairus is going to catch
  • and save the iphone but if he doesn't it's okay
  • alright here we go
  • We're going to launch two iPhones at once
  • so the screen did get a bit scratched
  • A case doesn't protect the screen
  • that was awesome
  • it's the view from inside leaf blower
  • We smacked the roof
  • Concrete
  • and then 3 2 1
  • It's good it's good
  • Well the iphone suvived being shot 30+ feet in the air
  • we probably should have put a screen protector on them though
  • check out Casetify using my link in the description below and save 20% using our coupon code
  • anyway this has got to be one of my favorite quick builds ever
  • We actually made the majority of it in one Saturday afternoon
  • though troubleshooting and filming took weeks
  • the build video ended up being so long
  • we decided to actually make this a two video project so make sure you hit that
  • subscribe button and smash that notification bell you're not going to
  • want to miss the big test. We're gonna see just how good this is at
  • blowing leaves, knocking people over, launching random objects into the air, plus
  • I put on the Iron Man suit
  • Thanks for watching
  • James said do it with one hand, hence one hand
  • James I did it with one hand.
  • Laser bandsaw means laser stays in one place and you moved the workpiece
