DIY EMP

0

Have you ever wanted to make your own Electromagnetic Pulse?  I have, unfortunately the most reliable way to produce an efficient one is via a nuclear explosion.  Or, maybe I just want to see a nuclear explosion for myself.  Either way, you can create your own EMP generator by following the above video.  Be sure … Continued

IRL Mario Kart

0

This week is a plethora of re-creating childhood memories in real life.  Next up is the classic game of Mario Kart.  Go Karting is nothing new, power ups are sorely lacking from the experience however.  Four students of Colorado State University’s mechatronics class, Alex Zenk, Katie Johnson, Floyd Bundrant, and Jacob Gover decided to make … Continued

Gunpowder Painting

0

Wyoming artist Danny Shervin uses gunpowder to make his art.  Yes, he does exactly what you are thinking, places each individual grain of gunpowder in a design, and lights it on fire.  I understand that hours are spent hand placing each grain, what I don’t understand is the prices he’s commanding for his art.  I guess … Continued

Dangerous Woodworking

0

There’s some pretty neat machines in here that mill wood, work with wood, and do all sorts of things to wood.  I like the bread cutting device 3 or 4 minutes in, that thing looks inefficient, but cool.  Cutting that giant cedar log down just off center though took forever.  It makes sense how slow … Continued

360 Tornado Footage

It’s Tornado Season.  Or it was, or it will be.  I’m never quite sure when Tornado Season actually is.  I just know that when it starts, it offers some pretty awesome videos, photos, and time-lapses of the storms as the make their way across the MidWest.  This year though is different.  It marks the beginning … Continued

Yes, this is as stupid as it sounds.  No, he is not successful.  No you should not try this ever.  Yes, he should rethink his life choices. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you have to try and get 100% usage out of your winter equipment.  It’s perfectly reasonable to leave them sitting in … Continued

Quidditch IRL

0

Partially IRL that is.  You only have about 30 seconds to score a goal.  There’s no Golden Snitch, or Bludgers, and the first one to pull their parachute forfeits the game.  These Skydivers got in character costumes and decided to play a short game of Quidditch. I can’t find anything else about this stunt, but … Continued

POOP!

0

What is that you ask?  Why could this person possibly be floating in?  I’ll tell you, it’s poop!  Not just any poop either, concentrated poop.  Australia doesn’t process sewage with chemicals, instead they gather up all the poop and let “natural” bacteria break it down into better things.  Naturally, the poop pool is not the … Continued

Shattered Glass

0

This is a pretty good way to spend 10 minutes of your life.  Granted, you only really will care about parts of it.  These guys are pretty fun to watch.  I like how they showed it at normal speed, then slowly increased the frame rate.  Granted, it’s a colossal waste of perfectly good mixing jars, but … Continued

Drone Fireworks

0

We’re coming up on the greatest Holiday in America, the 4th of July.  What better way to celebrate than to attach Chinese made fireworks to the back of a drone and fly and shoot them at each other while drinking beer and smoking cigarettes.   America. Fuck Yea. I post this now so that you … Continued
