They stole our idea! ER's random stuff IRL and in games/movies
« on: January 02, 2017, 11:50:18 pm »

Dumb topic for stuff you came up with, either engineering/prototyping stuff on ship or cool stuff you did on a mission, that totally got ripped off by games/movies/real life. Especially if they'd work irl.

I knew I should have patented, trademarked and copyrighted that damn hammer. Blizzard, you bastards!

(note: the Hacksmith really doesn't understand how much rocket-power this thing needs. He's not even wearing a self-protection exo-suit)

Developed while bored and wasting PW's time before Sambo's first mission.

Feel free to add your own :)

I recall platinum(?) hammer, but I have no memories of any rocket hammers.

I'm not around much anymore. I'll still check PMs though.
