You know why no one has ever tried becoming Batman in the real world?

Cause someone would shoot you in the head as soon as you snuck up on them. That's how the real world works, you'd get shot, stabbed, or smashed over the head with a pipe. Maybe even all three at once. 

Or would you? A team of weaponry researchers has designed the closest approximation to a Batsuit in real life and there's footage of it being tested.

Crafted by Unified Weapons Master, the production of the suit took over years to build. That's largely due to the fact that they needed to create a suit that offered protection on top of being flexible.

The videos do a great job showing off how well the suit would fare against hand-to-hand combat as well as kendo swords to the face.
