If this morning’s ION Thruster was too slow, or dangerous for you to build, try your hand at this more traditional building block, LEGO bricks: Comprised of about half a million bricks, it’s powered by 256 cylinders which in turn are powered by compressed air.  Everything is built out of LEGOs (except for maybe the … Continued

WRX vs. Stick Bomb


I’ve heard of stick bombs before, I’ve seen gifs of them and I know the theory of why they work, but damn this is impressive.  The model R/C car above holds it’s own against the sticks, but it’s hard to really tell, it being a model and all.  I wonder how many takes they went … Continued

3rd Person Driving


Technology is such an amazing thing now isn’t it?  Using head mounted goggles, not an Oculus Rift this time unfortunately, and a flying drone (I hate that word drone, it’s an RC helicopter that doesn’t cost $5k), a group of British people have put together their own drive a car from the rear view angle. … Continued

How to build an Engine


This started out as a simple idea.  Let me take pictures of this thing as I take it apart so that I know where to put everything back together.  Well, it looks like that worked pretty well.  The side project becomes turning the entire collection of 3,000 pictures into an awesome time-lapse video of taking … Continued

These 2 people turned a 33 year old Suburu into an ace looking Jurassic Park Jeep replica, Here’s what the car looked like when they … Continued

Parking Passes


Everyone has seen people who deserve these parking lesson slips on their cars.  Few people do anything about it, and it really doesnt matter because you’re bumper sticker you’ll affix to their car wont do anything but piss them off and make them feel like they have to live up to the (low) standards of … Continued

Pointlessly Expensive Cartoon


Or car commercial, but car commercials are already pointless, so that title would have been redundant and recursive. I applaud them for their creativity, and for doing it all in the real world, without a green screen.  It did take them a long time to set it all up, and get the right speed, but … Continued

Stumbles I lost count


Another heaping helping of wrongness courtesy of everyone’s favorite add on, Stumble Upon.  We got memes, gifs, Nazis, and more, all for your viewing pleasure, all right after the click.  Play a game of scrabble, hop on a plane to Australia, and remember, you are getting all of this information through the internet, what is … Continued
