The 2017 MarbleLympics

0

I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … Continued

Trick Pool Shot

0

Technically, this was Snooker, not that it really matters that much, this was an incredible shot.  I think I’m equally impressed with the amount of room that this pool hall has.  I lost count of the number of tables visible, but it seemed like quite a set up.  Another thing that always amazes me is … Continued

VR Mario Kart

0

I gotta say, I never really was a fan of the Virtual Reality games and ideas.  But watching this side by side video of what the user sees, and how they have to interact with the game to play, I like it. A lot.  Is it practical for home use, not a chance.  Would I … Continued

So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

How Neat is this?

0

That’s pretty neat, that’s what that is. This is what I’m doing this week now, watching Nature, and all the neat things that make it up. You should really watch the rest of the videos on the channel, they are really well done.  Don’t really take anything he says to heart though, it’s a parody … Continued

New York City – By Drone

0

I know this video is almost 3 years old, but sometimes it’s nice to revisit some old things, and show how times have changed, and technology improved.  In this case, the video quality is still amazing, as is the production quality.  You know what has changed, the ability to do something like this and not … Continued

The Gustav Gun

0

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years. The above shows Hitler and some generals … Continued

Creepy Abandoned Hotels

0

Igloo City is my favorite one on the list.  Yes I have a soft spot in my heart for Alaska, I think it’s one of the most exotic ones because of it’s weird look.  It also looks like it was just abandoned.  Some of the others in the list are truly abandoned, and look like … Continued

This House is Ace

0

Look at this nice unassuming cardboard house.  It looks like something a middle schooler would build for an art project doesn’t it?  Well, hopefully it is, because when you turn it around, you’ll notice that the inside of this house is actually a fully functional PC. It’s neat, but it looks like a pretty crappy … Continued

Rocket Engine Underwater

0

When I was a kid I loved launching model rockets.  I spent many hours building them from kits, and wrapping paper tubes, and newspaper, and one even from a cardboard tube that a rug was in.  That was a fun one, we put an “F” type engine in it, there was so much black smoke … Continued
