There’s diminishing returns when it comes to adding more blades to a wind turbine and if there were less blades, the turbine would have to spin faster which is apparently not a very good thing when it comes to controlling a turbine. That’s basically why we settled on the three bladed wind turbine system. I think it…
Don’t ask why anyone would ever make a wooden switchblade just appreciate that we live in a world where a wooden switchblade could be made. John Heisz put together a wooden knife that pops out like any old switchblade and it’s pretty neat. He sands the wooden blade down and grinds it like you would any other knife and…
I think this is the most impressive video that Man At Arms has ever done, and that’s saying a lot since they’ve recreated all the coolest weapons from TV shows and movies in real life. But there’s something ridiculous impressive about making a katana (stylized like the one from Kill Bill) the traditional old school…
John Heisz is an absolute master at repurposing old things into awesome and beautiful knives and tools. Here he is carving a meat cleaver from an old circular saw blade. The blade on blade cutting action is spectacular, the sanding of the knife is always fun to see and the making of the handle is way more complicated…
Man at Arms: Reforged just showed off their latest movie weapon badassery and this time they recreated the retractable wrist blades from Predator. The design is especially sick because they made the entire gauntlet that Predators wear on their wrist and it can quickly shoot out with one motion.
You'll get lost watching him work. I definitely did. Cliff Denton is a 'putter' for Ernest Wright & Sons, the last remaining hand manufacturer of scissors there is, and he literally puts together scissors with his hands. He's a master at it. Watching him work is mesmerizing and satisfying to see. It's basically art.
This credit card is really a knife. Just putting that out there in case it wasn't coming across already. It's a 2.2mm thick, 85.6mm x 54mm CNC machined aluminum treat. Keep it in your wallet to impress your friends and gore your enemies!
What's a casual way to start a video? How about a fun little opening introducing what you're going to do or make. You could say something like, "Arrows are normally a good way to pierce a skull, but I'm concerned that [they] may not destroy enough brain matter." Light hearted fun!
First-aid supplies? Fresh water? Canned food? Sure, they're all nice things to have when the world as we know it comes to an end and zombies walk the Earth. But what you really need to survive the apocalypse is knives. Lots and lots of knives.
Here at Gizmodo, we like to think we put our reviewed products through a rigorous, real-life evaluation. That's one way of doing it. Or, you can test a device by attacking frozen animal corpses while wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
Three blades! Triple the effectiveness! And then Schick would come out with their Quattro Guillotine and then Gillette would up the ante to five and then it'd keep going until there would be no more heads to chop off... [Wulffmorgenthaler]
The only withdrawals you can make off of this credit card are the steaming innards of your fiercest enemy (terrible interest rate!). They can hide a knife pretty much anywhere these days, can't they? Watch how this one unfolds:
Here's something that should've happened way sooner: a pair of scissors that doesn't just pathetically snip snip snip at things but opens bottles, cuts through wire, shreds boxes, pierces holes and does a bunch of other rad stuff. Diagram, please:
The original "solution looking for a problem," the laser is now 50 years old. This gallery charts the evolution of a technology that underpins everything from the fibre-optic backbone of the internet to the search for clean fusion energy.
Tyan has created a monster supercomputer that harnesses all that power into a box that fits under your desk. Aimed at researchers and scientists, the Typhoon Personal Super Computer (PSC) is available with either Opteron or Pentium processors inside, and consists of four dual-socket blades in a box equipped with…
