Colin Furze, the high-energy U.K. garage inventor who just last week unveiled his fully retractable Wolverine claws, has now turned his attention to another mutant: Magneto, the Master of Magnetism.

While Furze hasn’t figured out how to bend metal with his mind or hurl enemies with the wave of a hand (not yet, anyway), he has devised a magnetic shoes that allow him to walk on the ceiling. (OK, maybe he’s more Lionel Richie than Erik Lehnsherr.)

“Magnetic shoes, something it seems only NASA has done before me,” Furze writes. “Not even Ian McKellen used real ones in the X-Men films. I may not be controlling metal with my mind, but being ‘Magnetic’ is close enough for me.”
