Marvel fan Jesse McLaren turned his nerdy talents towards putting Doctor Strange into some odd situations. The geek says that he took every shot from the behind-the-scenes features where Doc Strange was in front of a green screen and edited him into a waterpark.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you about the impending robot apocalypse. One of the most terrifying robots on the horizon has to be Boston Dynamics‘ ATLAS robot. Terrifying because they are teaching this thing to do all kinds of new tricks.
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that Robert Downey became Iron Man, but it’s actually been more than 10 years. Downey first played his iconic character in 2008. To celebrate his 10 years on screen, Marvel fan Jennifer Morgan has cobbled together all the Iron Man suit ups she could get her hands on into a single fun video.
People seem to have a lot of trouble assembling IKEA furniture, which I never quite understood. But whether or not you manage complete its construction, you can always try to turn it into something else. Like turning it into an R/C plane and just flying it away into the wild blue yonder.
Boston Dynamics continues to build out their robotic menagerie with more sophisticated, agile, and intelligent robots. A recently published video shows the company’s SpotMini robot autonomously navigating around their offices. It basically just shows off the fact that these things will be able to seek and destroy humans, even in an office environment.
I reviewed a few robot vacuums way back in the day, and they always seemed to get to work in the middle of the night shortly after I forgot they were in the house. These autonomous cleaners can be scary when they kick on and you aren’t expecting it.
What if I told you that it takes a full five minutes to get a single piece of tape out of this insane Rube Goldberg machine? Hey, it’s about the journey, not the tape. At least that’s what I would keep telling myself if I had to wait on this machine to get said tape.
Australian beatboxer Tom Thum has put together a medley using nothing but his voice to recreate theme songs from some of the cartoons, TV shows, and movies that anyone from the ’80s will remember.
The video starts with him thanking folks for telling him his throat looks like a vagina, which is weird.
All Hollywood seems to know how to do these days is make remakes, reboots, rehashes, and retreads. One of the movies that they haven’t touched yet is Back to the Future, and they must never be allowed to soil this classic franchise.
Madman builder Colin Furze continues to add to his arsenal of dangerous playthings. This time, he designed and built Alexa voice-activated flamethrower. This guy never stops building insane things that could put him in the hospital.
Actually, what you are about to watch is a video from Agility Robotics of Cassie, a two-legged, ostrich-inspired robot and one of Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robots. They are having a creepy little playdate.
Awww. Isn’t that adorable?
Great. Here’s another thing a robot can do something that I can’t – splits. Robotics engineers at Guangdong University of Technology’s School of Automation in China have developed a new robot that has jet-powered feet. This improves the bot’s balance, agility, and capabilities.
David Aguilar was born with an underdeveloped right arm. But he didn’t let that stand in his way, and he built himself an awesome prosthetic replacement using LEGO Technic parts. He has put a ton of time into it.
If you thought ED-209 from Robocop was big, he’s nothing compared to some of the huge robots in movies. I’m just hoping that life doesn’t imitate art, because if it does, the robot uprising is going to be full of massive robots.
If you like a good puzzle, check out this video by Ryan Calme demonstrating all the steps required to open the extremely complicated puzzle box he built for his father. The box as a bit of everything thrown in: cyphers, enigmatic symbols, magnets, electronics, gears, hidden compartments, and more stuff to confound your mind.
