Remember when you were a kid and you would try to swing over the bar? Well, since Colin Furze never grew up, he’s fulfilling his childhood fantasy at a terrifying scale. Safety equipment? Who needs that?
A real A-10 Warthog fighter plane is equipped with a Gatling-type 30mm cannon that can fire off 4,200 rounds per minute. This mini, remote-controlled version of the Warthog fires NERF balls instead. YouTuber ajw61185 put a stripped down NERF Rival Zeus blaster into the nose of an old FreeWing A-10, and the result is pretty awesome.
I never like to drive or park near sewage trucks. You know, the sort that people on septic systems call out when the crapper is full to slurp the disgusting sludge out of it so you can drop a deuce again.
This is the creepiest thing you will see all day. I promise. This mechanical skull comes from Japanese sculptor Y Nakajima, and is inspired by Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. I’m telling you now, don’t watch unless you want to have nightmares.
Would you trust a robot to give you a tattoo? What you’re looking at here is the “world’s first tattoo by an industrial robot.” Notice how tightly the person getting the tattoo is strapped to the chair.
The Smithsonian has spent about two years completely restoring the original USS Enterprise model that was used in all 79 episodes of Star Trek the original series. It’s hard to imagine spending two years working on a single model.
Kevin Kohler aka “The Backyard Scientist” does all kinds of cool and questionable stuff in his backyard. Well, now he has made a cool, or should I say hot, flaming sword.
Kohler filmed himself building a sword that’s literally on fire.
Wall-climbing robots have been around for a while, but wall-climbing robots that can actually spin spiderwebs? Did I mention they were made of carbon fiber? Yeah, that exists now. We’re all going to wind up suspended from some cave ceiling in cocoons.
What’s cooler? A flame thrower or a freeze ray? I prefer flame throwers, even though they’re not literally as cool. But which would win in a fight? The Backyard Scientist decided to test it out.
He constructed a homemade liquid nitrogen “freeze ray” that uses the pressure of the nitrogen turning from a liquid to a gas to create a powerful cold spray.
Action video makers Corridor Digital have created a very cool fight sequence using stop motion techniques that make it look like gravity was thrown out the window. The scene is super cool and you will certainly want to watch the video below a few times at least.
There’s nothing more fascinating than watching stuff melt. That’s why the Let’s Melt This channel set a hot dog, ketchup, mustard, and relish in a glass dish full of thermite. Thermite can burn with temperatures over 4,000° Fahrenheit, so this stuff is no joke.
Any parent of a LEGO fanatic will tell you there’s nothing worse than stepping barefoot on a pile, or even a single LEGO brick. The pain is excruciating. I’m pretty sure that Hell is nothing but a LEGO covered floor you have to walk on for all eternity.
Last week Nintendo announced an awesome “new” piece of hardware: the NES Classic Edition (aka the NES Mini), a tiny version of the classic console with 30 games built right in. Sweet! It’s all about nostalgia, and that nostalgia will sell tons of units.
Everything is always better with fire! That includes air cannons. Bigger is always better too. It’s not just a Texas thing. It’s a fact. That’s why Kevin Kohler, aka “The Backyard Scientist,” took one of those vortex air cannon toys and not just made it bigger, he added pyrotechnics.
