  • Hey guys, I'm the Hacksmith and this is make it real we've actually done quite a few Overwatch projects over the years.
  • But on this episode of Make it Real we're making everyone's favorite Overwatch character Mei!
  • As I was saying. Everyone's favorite character?
  • Several months ago. We hired a co-op student within the University of Waterloo to help design and build some projects here.
  • Her name's Elena and she fit right in with team here at Hackmith Industries.
  • This this is freaking awesome.
  • Ah man, i'm never going to get this done!
  • Elena's gonna try it now.
  • No, you're done
  • You're done
  • Anyway, she knows mains exothermic ice blaster on a project list and asked if she can make it. We said why not?
  • Hope you guys enjoy the video.
  • Okay, so how are we gonna do this in the game her weapon literally freezes bad guys.
  • So we're gonna use co2 which is also known as dry ice.
  • For convenience, we can use a fire extinguisher tank.
  • To control the flow we'll be using a linear actuator to pull the fire extinguisher lever.
  • To make it shoot more like a gun in the game.
  • We'll upgrade the nozzle. We can control this all with the wire and then make it look pretty. Piece of cake.
  • This episode will be amazing. I can't wait to get started
  • We should compare notes sometime
  • Wow
  • 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 dot IO
  • Watch this, is it getting cold in here?
  • You should have gone for the head.
  • This is awesome
  • Go into commercials. We'll be back after the intermission
  • This video has been sponsored by Simply Safe. An easy to use customizable home security system.
  • Which is great because Ian lives on the wrong side of the tracks
  • Side of the tracks.
  • I Lived here for two years. And in that time I've had three break-ins.
  • This is my back door that was kicked in. I've also had to board up the windows in my shed. I'm sick of it. I don't want another one.
  • Which is why we're so happy to get a Simply Safe sponsorship.
  • It's an incredibly effective and reliable home security system that's super easy and intuitive to install.
  • The sensors are tiny. You won't even notice it's there and since everything is wireless
  • Anyone can install themselves without any to be an electrician, but don't take my word for it
  • Let's hear about some of the features for Ian.
  • This is a freeze sensor, so your pipes don't burst.
  • This is my sump pump. So I'm gonna put the water sensor here.
  • I've got a security camera, but let's be honest. I'm gonna use it to watch my cats.
  • Just plug in the micro USB it's got a panic button
  • Plus it's super affordable with honest prices and no contracts or hidden fees. And if the power or Wi-Fi goes out it still works.
  • Monitored by professionals 24/7 you can sleep easy at night knowing that in case of an emergency
  • The monitoring center will notify the police and get you help
  • Check out SimplySafe.com/Hacksmith to learn more and get your own security system.
  • How it's going great.
  • Until the end.
  • Every connection causes a flow restriction.
  • Try number 343.
  • Thumbs up to that.
  • I'm going in
  • I'm just trying to do the best I can.
  • Amazing!
  • Loud noises!
  • The nothing serious
  • Don't worry about it!
  • Way to go
  • I've come to appreciate zip-ties.
  • Ta-da. Zip ties.
  • Did someone say overkill?
  • These zip-ties are only 50 cents each.
  • We are almost there.
  • Okay ready.
  • That's an empty tank, isn't it?
  • There was a hosepipe on their.
  • Was that a success?
  • Half way. That could have gone better.
  • Did I scare you?
  • Oh Yeah!
  • So what happened was the hose came off of the gun and it ripped off the wires connecting to the trigger
  • So the linear actuator stayed in position and it kept shooting dry ice around and scaring people off.
  • So this time I added a couple of relays so that if that happens again
  • Then the linear actuator goes back to its position and it stopped shooting ice.
  • I'm never ready Well, there's not a lot of gas left. So we'll see.
  • I'm getting good at this.
  • Wow, that's nice.
  • I'm ready to start a blizzard.
  • Oh my god it's so cold.
  • Nice.
  • What does it do?
  • Loud noises.
  • Again
  • Ohh nice hair.
  • Time to see if we could free some water.
  • It's empty.
  • What?
  • Disappointed!
  • Let's see if we can freeze this water.
  • All right, i'm going to blast it.
  • See that?
  • It's curling right off the edge.
  • Alright, let's see what's better. A Not a Flamethrower from Boring Company form Mei's Ice gun.
  • Scared?
  • Haha.
  • I Guess this really is not a flamethrower
  • So, hang on why is it so hard to make stuff freeze even though it looks effortless in the game?
  • Well changing the temperature of water actually takes an insane amount of energy. To cause an effective heat transfer.
  • As you guys know Colin Furze actually made a liquid nitrogen freeze gun a while back and even shooting liquid nitrogen at water.
  • Well, it took a very long time to freeze.
  • I know Let's try freezing like a cup of water. That is a true test.
  • How cool does that look? It's completely frozen.
  • Since dry ice isn't even as cold as liquid nitrogen
  • The best we're gonna do is make things a little frosty.
  • For example to freeze an entire liter of water
  • We need about 770 grams of dry ice. Assuming perfect heat transfer.
  • Which we don't have when we're shooting it violently from a ice gun.
  • Most of its being absorbed by the surroundings but it is still an awesome looking cosplay prop.
  • All right, so it's not actually that good at freezing things but it does work as a pretty good fire extinguisher.
  • Which is quite handy considering
  • I'm on fire.
  • Mei. Mei. Mei!
  • All Right, that was pretty awesome. Elena did a fantastic job on one of her first make it real projects
  • Don't forget to check out her other project that she made Pandora's box
  • Unfortunately, she's back at school now to finish her engineering degree.
  • But we've hired a new co-op student to replace her Charles. Charles get over here
  • Charles! If you guys are interested in working for Hackmith Industries
  • We do actually take on co-op students from local high schools and universities and colleges.
  • Unfortunately at this time we can't accommodate international students
  • But maybe someday in the future when we have a larger facility and our business is bigger. We'll be able too.
  • Well I hope you guys enjoy the video. It smells really bad
  • Which is pretty handy considering
  • You're not flammable.
  • And cut
