The Backyard Scientist is back in his yard doing science, along with his electrically-inclined pals Brandon and Coyt, and this time they’re exploding watermelons with 20,000 volts of electricity. Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.
We have seen the gang over at the Hydraulic Press Channel smash everything they can get their mitts on. In their latest video, the team decided to see what would happen to some objects made from the fictitious substance Adamantium.
Power lines tend to collect trash when the wind blows. Plastic bags and other assorted trash stuck in the lines can be dangerous. Apparently, in Xiangyang, China, they now send drones up to sort out the mess… with fire!
This is something you should not try at home, even though it is tempting. This high-speed spinning toy can reach over 100,000 RPMs once spun up to speed with compressed air, but the what makes it dangerous are the attached razor blades.
Remember when The Backyard Scientist Kevin Kohler sliced through stuff with his rocket knife? Good times. Cool as that was, he knew he could do better, so he has now launched a 1,000° red hot rocket knife at a bunch of stuff just to see what would happen.
The Backyard Scientist is back and his latest project involves a killer knife that will slice through anything because it is traveling on a track at 150 MPH. Pretty scary, but also pretty awesome.
The idea was to recreate his favorite Mythbusters’ experiment where they sliced a car (and a boat) in half with a rocket sled.
What’s inside of a 4K camera? Who knows? four “Ks” maybe. Whatever that is. It is a mystery wrapped in an enigma and shrouded in a riddle. Well, if you have ever pondered that question, now is your chance to find out the answer.
Do you like to watch things get destroyed, or maybe just have a grudge against iMacs? Then this video is for you. In this clip, we see the Slow Mo Guys destroying an old iMac with a blast traveling at over 4,000 miles per hour from a combustion tube.
Back in the ’90s, the Furby was the hottest toy of the Christmas season. Well, now there’s a new edition with modern tech inside. It is more lifelike with creepy new digital eyeballs for instance. But nothing can prepare you for seeing what this thing looks like while it is being cut in half by a powerful water jet.
Being a Roomba is pretty depressing. You just roll along, picking up dirt for your whole life, never getting a thank you, never getting a pat on the back, but always getting a charge so you can continue on with your hellish existence.
Youtuber TechRax likes to buy expensive gadgets and destroy them for views. Yeah, this kind of stuff gets old pretty quick, but it’s gotten him over 5 million subscribers. And the only reason I’m sharing this video with you guys is because his latest video has Rax at the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
It’s no mystery what happens when you drop a huge concrete block onto a car. The car gets completely obliterated and smashed. It is one of those destructive things that is oddly satisfying and a guilty pleasure to watch.
The other day we showed you the soothing and seductive way that the folks at Let’s Melt This burned down their PS3. Technically it was more melting than burning, but that is the name of their channel after all.
Breaking a bottle with your bare hands isn’t a remotely good idea. Even if you have experience breaking bottles with a punch, you could seriously hurt yourself, and even permanently damage your hand. However, it turns out there’s a way you can pretty safely break a bottle with your bare hands, by hitting it a certain way.
Watching things explode or break in slow motion is fun. That’s why Gavin Free and Dan Gruchy of The Slow Mo Guys built a LEGO airplane and a LEGO city, then recorded their destruction with their high speed cameras.
