A man who dubs himself the ‘real life Tony Stark’ has gone viral online for the amazing gadgets he builds, including a Spider-Man ‘web shooter.’
Vitalii Romanovich Kardash, 26, from Ukraine, posts videos of his creations – and now plans to build an Iron-Man style flying suit.
Vitalii, who has a degree in Robotics, has racked up millions of views on his TikTok, where he is followed by 256k users.
Vitalii Romanovich Kardash, 26, from Ukraine, shows off his homemade web-slinging device – just one of multiple Marvel-inspired inventions he has designed and displayed on his TikTok

The web shooter fits onto the users forearm and has a button that is activated when the middle and ring fingers curl towards the palm of the hand
Tony Stark is a Marvel character who uses his genius and billions of dollars to develop gadgets and become the super hero Iron-Man.
Much like Tony Stark, the Ukrainian technology wizard is using his expertise to make fantastical crime-fighting devices from super hero movies a reality.
Vitalii’s TikTok features videos of him demoing his Spider-Man web-slinging device, hovering above the sea on a flyboard and whooshing along on a remote control mountainboard.
He said: ‘As a child, I was fond of electronics, mechanics and physics, and at the age of 12 I designed a hot air balloon.
‘I flew up two metres, because my parents wouldn’t allow me to go higher.
‘After six years of university, I graduated from a private academy of Robotics where I learned how to programme microcontrollers, servos, stepper motors and all kinds of sensors.
‘My first large invention was the electric mountainboard in carbon fibre with a remote control function.’
Vitalii said: ‘My activity requires knowledge of robotics, physics, mechanics, programming, and knowledge of the properties of metals.’
Vitalii also modified a mountainboard so as to make it controllable with a remote clicker

Vitalii’s next big challenge is to build a ‘flying suit’, taking inspiration from Iron-Man
With 18 electric jet engines, the suit is designed to give its user the ability to take flight
Vitalii says he’s now working on his biggest project yet, a suit with 18 electric jet engines which will allow him to fly – just like Iron-Man.
Vitalii said: ‘I made irrigation systems at home, the lighting system, the Spider-Man web shooter, and now the flying suit is in my plans.
‘My main goal is to create cool inventions, and share my achievements with people.
‘My activity requires knowledge of robotics, physics, mechanics, programming, and knowledge of the properties of metals.’
