Shoveling snow is really bad for your back. It’s also the cause of heart attacks for many people every year. Screw that. You wanna remove snow? You need fire. A guy from Grassy, Missouri recently built himself a flamethrower for quick snow removal.
Forget robotic lawnmowers. They only do part of the job. What we need is something that looks like a Batmobile and can mow grass, mulch leaves, and remove snow. That’s the Kobi Garden Robot. This amazing machine will maintain lawns and gardens all year long.
The new season of Game of Thrones kicks off soon and fans of the series are rightfully ecstatic. To help promote the new season for Sky Atlantic, British artist Simon Beck was hired to create a massive House Stark sigil in the unblemished snow of the French Alps.
Sledding down hills is fun in the winter time, but lugging a sled around snow-covered hills is not a fun chore. Well, there is an answer to that age old problem now. Sled Legs!
Now you can wear your sleds on your legs, which seems like a simple but brilliant idea.
When I was a kid, you waited in the snow for a passing car and grabbed on, letting it pull you along for a wild ride. We called it tow-line snowboarding. You kids today with your drones and your droneboarding.
The latest innovation in snowball fights comes from scientist and hacker Mark Rober, who, has taken the sport to the next level with his snowball machine gun.

If you are ever stuck in a wheelchair, don’t let that stop you from doing fun things. Take Iraq War veteran Justin Anderson, who has an awesome off-road wheelchair. Recently, he attached a snowplow to his modified chair, and used it to help his neighbors clear their snow.
Thingiverse member CloudJ helps make the last days of winter more fun with his DIY snowman mold. Available in two- and three-ball variants, the mold lets you make lots of tiny snowmen in minutes.
As Nerd Approved pointed out, CloudJ’s snowmen look just like the ones that Bill Watterson’s Calvin loves to build (and destroy).
This is the Equinox Snowcoach. It’s a little $2,000 suppository that’s meant to keep its passengers safe and protected from the elements while being towed by a truck or ATV. As a finished concept, I think it’s fairly cool, but I certainly have about a billion other things I’d rather drop two Gs on.
We have robots that can do annoying chores for us right now. You can buy robots that vacuum for you, gutter-cleaning robots, pool cleaning robots, mopping robots, lawn-mowing robots and I’m sure there are many more.
Many parts of the country are covered in a ton of snow right now. How do you get around when everything looks like the North Pole? Behold the Powerboard Gas-powered Snowboard! This strange looking vehicle combines the power of a snowmobile with the freedom of a snowboard.
Winter is in full swing in most of the country. While it was nearly 70-degrees in Texas yesterday, many Northern states are still swathed in deep snow and frigid temps. Not having snow in Texas, it’s always fun to see the winter shenanigans that people in colder climates get up to.
Snowmobiles are fun and fast, but when you just want to get down a big snow-covered hill, there’s nothing like a sled. If you’re the kind of speed freak that enjoys going 40mph downhill, then this sled might be for you.
