Check out this video from amazingdiyprojects as he takes his homemade multi-rotor copter out for its first manned test flights. Yes, it looks like a death trap. He is just sitting there surrounded by dozens of angry, spinning rotors.
After seeing how he acted out in The Force Awakens, I assumed that Kylo Ren’s bad attitude would only be able to get you riled you up. But it turns out that his deep, mechanically-enhanced voice can also be quite soothing.
Sphero is not just about cute, connected rolling balls. The company is now unveiling its first non-spherical product. Sphero’s Spider-Man listens and responds to your voice commands. Unlike the company’s BB-8 toy, this guy doesn’t need an app to do its thing.
The Penguin Bomb is a DIY origami sculpture that arrives as a flat package, but when you drop it on a hard surface, it turns itself into a fat little penguin. Hence the name.
This cleverly-designed toy was created by paper artist Haruki Nakamura.
Octopi are very intelligent creatures, and they want to be left alone. You try to get some footage of an octopus, and they will steal your camera because they don’t care about your silly YouTube channel.
We love to make LEGO builds around here, but when an aerospace engineer plays with LEGO, he makes them fly. I’m talking about engineer Adam Woodworth, who made his LEGO Space Shuttle lift off.
Set #1682, aka Space Shuttle Launch, was released way back in 1990.
Witness the destructive power of the mighty goldfish! What you’re looking at here is the Fish Hammer built by Neil Mendoza, who is obviously a mad scientist, as he has now given a tiny fish the ability to smash stuff with a hammer.
Nukazooka created this fun short film titled Mario’s Lost Kart. The video is about a guy who purchases an old go kart from a junkyard after his ride breaks down. What he doesn’t realize is that the kart once belonged to Mario.
Yesterday I talked a bit about the teaser that Nintendo released to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Super Nintendo World theme park at Universal Studios Japan. That trailer was CGI animated, though there were real people superimposed into it.
Not long ago we watched a video of a LEGO Porsche being strapped to a real crash test sled and smashed into an obstacle. The LEGO Porsche was thoroughly destroyed in the test. Now we have another LEGO car being crushed into blocky bits after being fired out of some sort of air cannon.
Like Crocodile Dundee once said, “That’s not a knife. This is a knife.” When they’re not building giant fighting robots, the guys behind Megabots like to smash and slice stuff with giant knives. They decided to use a 500-pound knife they custom built to stab a scrapyard Toyota.
While most of us can’t even get our hands on a Nintendo Switch, some guys are out dropping theirs repeatedly on the ground already. The guys from UnlockRiver took the Switch with its two Joy-Con controller attached, tied it to a string and used a drone to lift it 1000-feet into the air.
As part of a celebration to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a church in Germany has created a robot priest. Why not? Robots are going to kill us all dead one day, they might as well save our souls beforehand.
Some dads are truly awesome. Like Minnesota Savvysherpa, Inc research scientist Paul Boswell. He is a truly cool dad, having built a working hovercraft for his son, Oliver.
You can watch the video below and see the kid put it through its paces.
