James Bond Plays James Bond

It’s on the short list of the greatest games of all time, I’m talking about Goldeneye 007  Did you know that that game is 17 years old?  Did you know that the movie it’s based on is 19 years old?  Did you know that we’re all getting old? Anyway, Jimmy Fallon was “interviewing” Pierce Brosnan recently, and … Continued

A Floppy Symphony

Youtuber MrSolidSnake745 has perfected the art of using Floppy Drives to produce music.  He has an entire symphony set up from 4 up to 16 individual floppy drives used to recreate these themes.  Largely, he does Video Game music, but there’s a couple of songs in there too.  He was even commissioned by a museum … Continued

LEGO Springfield

Of The Simpsons’ fame, not Illinois.  Above you’ll see 123 Fake Street recreated in LEGO fashion.  Below you’ll see some other landmarks of Springfield of unknown state.  Using an unknown number of bricks (because he doesn’t want to know how much money he sunk into it) Master builder Matt De Lanoy built much of Springfield … Continued

How a Jet Engine Works

0

  I featured Animagraffs before, that time it was how a gun works.  Now we see how a Jet Engine works. The Afterburner is the important part.  It’s what allows the F-15 to be such an effective fighter.  Not just the F-15 though, all fighters use it, but the F-15 is the best fighter ever … Continued

Indiana Jones + Star Wars Theory

I love me a good theory that ties random movies together.  It’s even better when we involve Nazi’s in the mix, because seriously, it is, trust me.  So when I stumbled onto this Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Jack Ryan cross theory on the assassination of Hitler, I was hooked.   I broke up the original … Continued

Rebecca Litchfield has as pretty interesting photography project – taking photos of abandoned buildings from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.  She calls the exhibit Soviet Ghosts, and there are some pretty interesting photos there.  It’s not exactly like all other photos of abandoned places.  At least these were once home to the 2nd most powerful … Continued

Electrical Science

There are other things you can do with an old microwave instead of microwaving things, but it’s seriously dangerous.  Really, this guy is playing with the 2nd most dangerous part of the microwave.  Also, this guy needlessly sped up the audio and makes it seem fake. I really like spark that just sits and does … 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

Real Time Lightning

Everything happens in Real Time.  Just not everything is visible to humans in real time.  Especially when it spans the entry Country.  Luckily, this is where technology comes into play.  That and $200 of your own DIY money.  You can set up a simple system that will be used to detect lightning strikes across the … Continued

Old School ASCII

0

ASCII Art sure has come a long way.  Imagine having to type that all out by hand on a typewriter?  Having to know just when to place each letter.  It’s really nice that computers were invented now isn’t it? VLC can even do it in real time on a video.  There are endless sites and programs … Continued
