that way you will never miss a video again. Superhero movies and comic books have been
seeing a renaissance. The popularity of movies from Marvel and DC
has surged, they have been bringing in big bucks at the box office. Marvels Infinity war trailer almost broke
the internet, fans sharing the trailer and speculating on what could happen. So in this video we look at superheroes and
more specifically superpowers. We ask the question If there are any real
life super powered individuals out there? Is there any fact behind the fiction? We are going to look at three types of superpower
Physical powers, are there Hulk like people out there in the world? Mental abilities like those shown by X-men
leader and mentor Professor X and finally technological enhancement. Can we become the next Ironman or Batman? So let’s get into it
Superheroes like Superman show amazing strength and it is a staple ability for the majority
of superheroes out there but what about normal humans what is the limit of our strength? Throughout history mankind has obsessed over
physical strength. Legends like Hercules and Samson
Making strength a measure of masculinity, this then leading to competition like the
ancient Olympic Games where wrestling was used to find the strongest man alive. This has carried on through the ages and in
modern times we have seen international competitions like the world’s strongest man. This is where the likes Ed Coan, Andy Bolton
and Bill Kazmaier made their names. Taking part in mixed events which test their
ability to lift and move huge weight, they may not be to the level of Superman but compared
to the average man on the street it is impressive. The Guinness Book of World Records (1985 edition)
lists his feat of lifting 6,270 pounds (2844.02 kg) in a back lift as “the greatest weight
ever raised by a human being”. But what if like the Hulk we all have this
strength it is just dormant waiting for a trigger. Bruce Banner needs to get angry to release
the Hulk in what situation could your average Joe do the same? There have been many recorded incidents of
normal people displaying strength they should not have, from middle aged women lifting cars
to kids carrying Adults three times their size from burning buildings. This is known as Hysterical strength. When we find ourselves under intense pressure,
fear unleashes reserves of energy that normally remain inaccessible. We become, in effect, superhuman. Under acute stress, the body’s sympathetic
nervous system prepares the body for sustained, vigorous action. The adrenal gland dumps cortisol and adrenaline
into the blood stream. Blood pressure surges and the heart races,
delivering oxygen and energy to the muscles. It’s the biological equivalent of opening
the throttle of an engine. Vladimir Zatsiorsky, has studied the biomechanics
of weightlifting. He draws a distinction between the force that
our muscles are able to theoretically apply, this he calls “absolute strength,”
The maximum force that they can generate through the conscious exertion of will, which he calls
“maximal strength.” An ordinary person can only summon about 65
percent of their absolute power in a training session, while a trained weightlifter can
exceed 80 percent. Trained athletes can add as much as another
12 percent above that 80%. This higher level of performance is known
as “competitive maximum strength.” However these parameters are not a fixed—the
more intense the competition, the higher it can go. The brain’s fear centers progressively removing
any restraint on muscle performance. But there’s a limit to how fast and how strong
fear can make us. The Human body has limits but what if we could
surpass those limits using technology? This moves us into the realms of those Heroes
such as Batman and Ironman. Both ordinary men whom have used their vast
fortunes to purchases or invent cutting edge tech that gives each of them some amazing
abilities. Technology today is making huge leaps forward,
computing power is constantly improving, and material science is coming out with ever more
amazing materials. Lighter stronger and with properties that
were thought to be impossible. Could we see these inventions being combined
to make some kind of super suite? The US military has for a number of years
been working on such a project. TALOS the Tactical Assault Light Operator
Suit is an exoskeleton and armor combination. The suits will be made with a “liquid body
armor” that transforms into solid within milliseconds when a magnetic field or an electric
current is applied through the material. General Atomics intends to provide the TALOS
suits with a miniature combustion engine. This technology will rely on Liquid Piston’s
‘X’ engine, which employs the High Efficiency Hybrid Cycle.. The purpose of the engine in the exoskeletal
suit would be to recharge batteries, which in turn supply energy to all of the power-thirsty
components which will be integrated with the TALOS suit—including computer and sensor
systems, as well as robotic strength augmentation. The robotic strength may come from an invention
that shares its name with the super strong green menace that is the Hulk. HULC (Human Universal Load Carrier) by Ekso
Bionics and Lockheed Martin. This device a metal frame work with high powered
motors surrounds the wearer giving them the ability to lift huge weights with very little
physical output from the body. So super strength and invulnerability seemed
to be somewhat covered but what about that dream of many a superhero wanna be, flight? Richard M. Browning an ex-Royal Marine reservist
has created a suit which uses six miniature jet engines mounted on the arms and the lower
back provide propulsion. He has successfully flown this suit and it
is claimed to have the capability to flying at several hundred miles per hour, and at
thousands of feet. So it looks like Ironman would happy but what
about Batman? As we all know the Bat has an obsession, all
his tech must be bat themed and of course come in black. Let’s take our new power armor and give
it a coat of vantablack. Whats Vantablack? Only the blackest material on planet earth. The ‘spray-on’ form is capable of blocking
99.8 percent of infrared, ultraviolet, and visible light. Maker Surrey NanoSystems announced in 2016
that they enhanced the blackness of Vantablack to such a degree that no spectrometer can
ascertain the quantum of light it absorbs. Vantablack is not paint but a special coating
developed from an amalgam of carbon nanotubes measuring 20 nanometers each. It is a densely packed cluster of millions
of tiny nanotubes. The light, while entering the gaps of nanotubes,
gets trapped and is fully absorbed. This would be great for hiding in those dark
allies of Gotham! So it would seem technology is catching up
with its comic book counterparts, so how about the last group we mentioned at the start of
this video those with Mental powers. We have already taken a look at telepathy
in another video (see the link above) so let’s focus on telekinesis. “Telekinesis” is an umbrella term for any
ability that involves using the mind to influence/manipulate/move matter/objects. There have been a few people whom are said
to have displayed this power, although demonstrations are highly contested by the skeptics. Probably the most famous being Uri Geller. Geller has publicly demonstrated feats of
psychokinesis: spoon and key bending have become almost synonymous with his name. Although many skeptics and magicians consider
his metal-bending performances nothing more than sleight-of-hand, Geller has allegedly
shown that he can manifest the effects over great distances and in multiple locations. On a British radio show in 1973, after demonstrating
key bending to the astonishment of the host, Geller invited the listening audience to participate. Just minutes later, phone calls began pouring
into the radio station from listeners all over the UK reporting that knives, forks,
spoons, keys and nails began to bend and twist spontaneously. Watches and clocks that had not run in years
began to work. It was an event whose success surprised even
Geller and thrust him into the spotlight. What many don’t know is that this showman’s
supposed powers were used by the US government! Declassified documents show that in 1973 he
was tested for “clairvoyant” or “telepathic” abilities. Gellar was part of the “Stargate” Programme. A CIA Programme aimed at weaponizing psychics! Using gifted people for remote viewing,” and
building an army of “psychic warriors”. These remote viewers asked to gather information
on far way targets using only their minds. When asked about this Geller claims it to
be tip of the iceberg” of what he had been asked to do by the CIA, Mossad and other intelligence
agencies. If Gellar’s powers are real let’s make
sure he is kept away from the technology we mentioned earlier, the combination of his
abilities and that technology could end up creating a real life Dr Doom!!! What do you think, will we reach a point when
we will either manifest powers or create them in our factories or labs? Which superpower would like to have? Let me know in the comments below. If you enjoyed the video hit that like button
