This Guy Built Real-Life ‘X-Men’ Magneto Shoes That Let You Walk On The Ceiling

Shoes that walk on ceilings? Apparently they’ve been invented, sort of. Of course they had to be inspired by the X-Men superhero, Magneto. The shoes work magnetically allowing one to walk across the ceiling. These must be incredibly strong magnets given the risk he’s taking being completely upside down without some sort of safety mattress or something.



It’s strapped to each of his feet and uses electromagnets (taken from the coil of a microwave). The magnets also have a long cable attached to it where a button releases the magnets hold allowing him to move is feet without restraint. Check out the video below….
