YouTube channel AcademeG found a cheap Bentley Continental GT (are they ever actually cheap?) and created this monster off-road version. In this case it probably was cheap since it had so many problems with the engine.
The Ripchair 3.0 by Howe and Howe Technologies is a high-powered wheelchair that provides off-road access to the disabled. It accepts your existing chair and allows people who ride in wheelchairs to go over terrain that they normally would stay away from.
Growing up, my brother was a nervous sort and you could freak him out easily with just about any toy that moved on its own. I’m pretty sure it had to do with the flick Child’s Play that we stayed up and watched late one night or maybe Maximum Overdrive, where everything wanted to kill you.
Bandai Visual Club have come up with a great emblem for St. Gloriana’s sensha-do team, although it’s based on the tank used by the main characters of the hit anime Girls und Panzer. This Panzer IV turret teapot carries up to 300ml of liquid and comes with two teacups that are printed with quotes from the show.
Most wheelchairs have one major disadvantage. Like the Daleks of old, stairs stop them in their tracks. Not the Scalevo. This electric wheelchair is capable of climbing and descending stairs thanks to a set of tank-like tracks that can be lowered to keep the user level at all times.
LEGO Technic master Sariel built this 9″ tall and 5″ wide remote-controlled scale model of the World War II German tank Tiger II aka King Tiger. It’s propelled by two Power Functions motors, and its turret and cannon are moveable as well.
If you need to build up your army on the cheap, or you know, just make it look like you have an army, just buy some inflatable tanks. The size and color scheme of these tanks give them a very realistic look.
A few years ago we featured I-Wei Huang aka Crab-Fu’s remote-controlled steam-powered tank. Instructables member Ian aka steamhobby is a big fan of Crab-Fu and also makes steam-powered toys in his spare time. His recent project is a nod to Crab-Fu, mixing a steampunk frame with the gritty look of tank treads.
So you think your Steel Battalion controller is the bees’ knees? Redditor MrTheOx would like to have a word with you. Preferably while playing a tank-based game. He repurposed a surplus gunner’s turret yoke from an M1 Abrams training simulator and turned it into a computer joystick.
Upuaza Touryou likes to have fun with Amazon boxes. He previously built a model temple out of them. So it only makes sense that now he has built a tank. An amazing, remote controlled tank of a Type 97 Chi-Ha, which was used by the Imperial Japanese Army in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
Maybe you thought that self-driving vehicles were a little bit further away, but check out this prototype machine gun, that will dispatch enemies from afar, without needing anyone to drive it.
The HDT Robotics Self-Driving Machine Gun uses a M240 machine gun and it can fire at a target at almost 500 feet away.
At first glance this looks like a giant tank that must be the work of the military industrial complex. Well, it is a camera on some tank treads, but it isn’t tank-sized. It is a one-of-a-kind object called the Soviet Rumble PHU x Z*E*R*O.
Julian Oliver’s toy tank is a destructive weapon. You can’t even see its ammo, and it hits everything around it. That’s because it has a signal jammer that can block mobile phone signals within a 20 to 50 ft.
I love good sushi. Since I’m land-locked in the Midwest, it’s not exactly easy to get good fresh sushi-grade fish here, but there are definitely some places that fly it in daily at least. Still, I haven’t seen any sushi joint around here who serves it this way…
Yes, that’s a tank made of raw fish, rice and seaweed.
This MK-4 tank computer is pretty sweet. After all, this thing is a… tank! The guy who built it must have been tanked after completing this. (Sorry.) This fully-functional PC is finished in all aluminum with aluminum strips cut out to form the treads of the tank.
