I could put some screen shots, or gifs in here, but why bother, just watch the video above, it’s cooler then any picture can attest. Science Friday has shown us that water can indeed defy gravity.  It’s called The Leidenfrost Effect, and basically means that water will float ontop of it’s own water vapor when it’s … Continued

Insane Waterslide

0

  The above is a photograph of the currently in progress construction of VERRUCK, which is German for MEG-A-BLASTER, soon to be the worlds tallest water slide.  I gotta say, that is insane. Ridiculously crazy suicidally insane. It’s hard to tell from the above photo, but this is a raft ride.  So that’s somewhat better in … Continued

Slow Motion Life

High Speed digital photography is nothing new, and with Mythbusters using their high speed camera at every irrelevant moment, it’s something we’ve all gotten alittle too used to.  That is until you see some every day occurrences done with it, and you realize that all that science they Mythbusters use their high speed camera for … Continued

Leaf Boats for Gulliver

0

These are pretty cool, kinds of things I sometimes did in my pond, only they never went anywhere, and usually weren’t as structurally sound as those look. The whole premise is you take natural things and make a boat out of them, then put that into a stream, or pond, and take a picture of … Continued

Water Shields to Full Power

0

Concepts are weird.  Some are amazing in their ingeniousness, while others just scream wtf. This Water Shield for fruit is somewhere inbetween those two.  It’s a completely new idea, but something thats completely cool too, (in a “I wonder if this will ever work the way the picture shows” kinda way).  The idea behind it … Continued

Bathtub steam boats

2

Making your own steam boat sounds cool.  Especially a small mini one that you can use in the bathtub, (with or without you in it also).  The design seems simple, with the hardest part being the soldering of the copper tubes, because it is much harder to solder copper tubes then copper wires, but these … Continued

Hard water is Ice

2

Yes and no, and i don’t need any scientific reasons as to why I’m wrong/right.  Anyway, here are some awesome ice cube tray makers. I know someone who would like this, I think.  Buy them, $8.99. I think the name of this one is just great!  Not sure how well the fossils will stay together … Continued

Shift_the way you use water

0

I’m sorry, that just reminded me of the Nissan commercials with Shift_some words.  Anyway, here’s a new faucet designed to get people to use less water.  I’m gonna do something different, post all the photos of it, and then give my opinion. Ok, look at those pretty photos.  Aren’t they cool?  Well, here are my … Continued

The Bottle with no volume!

0

See that bottle, it has no volume!  Well, mathmaticelly it has no volume, but phisically it is capable of holding liquids.  It’s hard to see from that picture, so here is a cutaway of one that should show it better: Follow the line made by the glass.  It is one continuous line, you never cross.  … Continued

Sea Plane of the Future?

0

Imagine a plane that can fly you above the clouds, and then beneath the seas.  Imagine a plane that could drop bombs on your enemies, and torpedo the deepest nuclear submarines.  Imagine the future. DARPA is working on plans for just such a plane.  However, it will probably be some middle ground in the above … Continued
