Wang takes to social media to post his progress, ideas and plans.

He has videos on popular Chinese sharing websites, such as and, showing off how he made his Iron Man suit and the dedication it took to get details correctly. Such posts have given him a following - and inspired some to attempt to "do it" themselves.

In Shenzhen, 29-year-old Shan Baoming says that seeing what Wang and Ma are doing has inspired him to take up DIY projects.

Formerly a concept artist for a domestic video game company, Shan says he's very interested in seeing some of his artwork turned into physical objects.

While Shan wants to do a lot more research first, he says he has many friends in the design circle who are interested in working on a DIY project.

"I've always been fascinated by this DIY culture. When I used to work at a theme park, I had customers making animatronics. I got hooked," he says.

"It's all about taking design and realizing it into the physical. I think it's special because a design could look cool on paper but it can be spectacular in real life."
