Watch this bad ass guy go through a 9G centrifuge test

This is awesome. Here’s a guy who just passed his 9G centrifuge test, going through four different bouts of 9 G-force (and making funny awesome faces the entire time) and even lasting 10 seconds under 9G’s. High-G training is done to train pilots and astronauts to get them ready to deal with the crazy g-forces you… »9/30/15 8:40pmWednesday 8:40pm

Watch an incredible drone fly at crazy speeds through an abandoned building

Wow. This drone zooms so fast through this abandoned hospital in Spain that I’m pretty sure it might’ve reached warp speed. All the footage in the video below, taken by CHARPU FPV, is in real time. It’s pretty amazing control to fit into such small holes in the building and fly so gracefully through the hallways at… »9/28/15 9:15pmMonday 9:15pm

Fire breathing in bullet time looks so completely bad ass

It’s a universal rule that even after all these years, everything looks cooler in bullet time. Time stops! Perspectives get reversed! And when this dude is breathing fire in bullet time, it looks like a maniacal orange fiery beast is being excised from the guy’s body. It’s a really bad ass look. »9/22/15 5:55pm9/22/15 5:55pm

This 7-mile wide solar system model built to scale on a dry lakebed is simply incredible

I’m at a loss for words. This project and accompanying short film, To Scale: The Solar System by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh, is so incredibly awe-inspiring and so beautifully executed, that it will make me dream of the cosmos tonight (maybe every night). The premise is simple: to build a solar system model to… »9/17/15 12:00am9/17/15 12:00am

It takes $1500, 6 months, and a lot of farming to truly make a sandwich at home from scratch

How do you make a sandwich at home? Grab some bread, slap together some mustard and mayo, throw in some turkey, add some cheese, lettuce, tomato and onions, and then eat it right? That’s what normal people do but that’s a total shortcut. How do you truly make a sandwich at home and from scratch? It involves farming… »9/16/15 5:00am9/16/15 5:00am

The stunning visual symmetry between the old Star Wars trilogy and the new movies

Here is a truly lovely visual comparison between the much loved, original Star Wars trilogy and the much maligned, newer prequel movies. The video, called Star Wars Poetry, shows off how the new movies are so strikingly similar with the old trilogy, honoring the original flicks while creating a sense of familiarity in… »9/09/15 10:48pm9/09/15 10:48pm

Watch this awesome electromagnetic catapult test on an aircraft carrier

This is going to be so cool. The US Navy commissioned an electromagnetic launcher for testing on the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier and the system will be much more efficient and smoother in launching planes in the future. It’s the first time things have been shot off the ship without the old steam catapult system »9/08/15 11:30pm9/08/15 11:30pm

Racing down the street on a longboard at 70mph blurs the world

I imagine when Superman flies around the world, all he sees is a blur as he zooms by. But since we can’t all be Superman, the closest we’ll get to that close first hand blur view is zipping down a street on a longboard at 70mph. But since most of us would never do that either, we’ll just watch this video of Zak Maytum… »9/08/15 5:23pm9/08/15 5:23pm

The truly spectacular process of how the best chef's knife in the world is made

Made of stacked melted meteorite that looks more like Thor’s hammer and armed with the encyclopedic knowledge of knives and stunning skill from bladesmith Bob Kramer, these chef Kramer knives are among the finest in the world. This video of him, by Anthony Bourdain’s Raw Craft, features his process and it might be the… »9/02/15 8:20pm9/02/15 8:20pm

Cool short film teases what happens to Boba Fett after Star Wars

Boba Fett is supposed to get his own Star Wars Anthology film that focuses on the origins of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter but I think I’d much rather watch this version made by Eric Demeusy that shows Boba Fett escaping sarlacc with the help of the Slave I and then moving on to whoever knows where, in some sort… »9/02/15 11:18am9/02/15 11:18am

Honest trailer of Mad Max: Fury Road shows how improbably awesome it was

If there is one thing all of humanity can agree on it’s that Mad Max: Fury Road was pretty much the most awesomest action movie this year. But it’s even more awesome to think about how impossible that awesomeness was: it’s a franchise whose last movie was 30 years ago. Its director did Happy Feet and Babe. Mad Max… »8/25/15 9:30pm8/25/15 9:30pm

Just a bunch of bad ass explosions from Arnold Schwarzenegger movies

Few actors love their explosions as much as Arnold does. Here’s a 30-minute (yes, 30-minute) supercut of explosions from all his movies. It’s a promo for his goal to blow shit up to entertain the Internet and help out charities and it includes clips from movies such as Conan, The Terminator, Total Recall, True Lies, … »8/13/15 4:19am8/13/15 4:19am

A helicopter closely chases a race car in this truly insane stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the Internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and… »8/05/15 11:00pm8/05/15 11:00pm

Incredible photo of hawks tossing food to each other in midair

Photographer Phoo Chan captured this perfect sequence of a Northern Harrier tossing prey to one of its baby chick hawks in midair. It’s an amazing display of coordination, like a little game of pitch and catch between a dad and his kid. You can see the adult hawk drop the prey and then watch the offspring catch it, as… »7/31/15 7:40pm7/31/15 7:40pm

A car and drones spinning around in a circle is a fantastic light show

Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them. It’s light painting but with a car and drones as the paintbrush. »7/31/15 4:58pm7/31/15 4:58pm

Here's more awesome footage of the Lexus hoverboard

That Lexus hoverboard that we all got collectively giddy about until we realized we could probably never afford one (if they were ever going to actually build more than one) is going to be shown off in full on August 5th. Lexus is saying that it’ll be revealing everything about the project then, which cool, we’ll see… »7/28/15 8:00pm7/28/15 8:00pm

Watch a MiG-29 take off and immediately shoot up vertically into the sky

Wow, this is so cool. Here’s a MiG-29 fighter jet taking off from a runway and then immediately launching vertically into the sky. The takeoff looks completely normal and innocuous until the jet is a few feet off the ground and then it just zips up like it’s riding the world’s fastest invisible elevator.

Watch a motorbike engine disintegrate one millimeter at a time

Watch as this motorbike engine gets sanded down millimeter by millimeter. This is so much cooler than seeing something poof and disappear away because we get to watch it slowly disintegrate into nothing. It’s like seeing decay of a hundred years over a few seconds. Each peeled back layer exposes something new in the… »7/24/15 3:03pm7/24/15 3:03pm
