What’s a team of giant robot designers supposed to do between Maker Faires and mecha battles? Build giant knives and smash shit with them, of course.
Turns out, dropping a giant concrete block onto a car ends exactly like how you would imagine it would: the car gets completely obliterated and smashed to smithereens. Crash Zone pulled off this incredibly silly stunt and filmed it in slow motion so you can see the damage in lovely, exacting detail. The concrete block…
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame and now at Tested, needed a car seat for his dogs that could go right in the back of his brand new car—one that would protect the leather interior, but still be thick and sturdy enough not to move around when they get boisterous. He made this, and it works like a charm.
I don’t know if these wooden planks can be considered a bridge or if they just constitute a poorly made death trap but I know that I wouldn’t even want to walk on the thing. And yet, this guy drives a truck that’s towing a boat over it! Nervousness alone would make me crash it right into the water below, destroying…
On an earnings yesterday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk finally responded to “some fairly crazy” Model S Autopilot videos that show reckless idiots pushing the feature beyond where it’s supposed to go. He isn’t pleased.
Work commutes can really suck, especially when it takes two hours to travel 10 miles. Here are the cities where you’ll spend the most time just sitting in traffic.
Driving is the most dangerous thing most people do. It’s also something for which they likely have no or minimal training. Before you hit the road for Memorial Day weekend, let’s look at how to make it more survivable.
Jaguar unveiled their new car model to the world—the #NewXF—making it cross the Thames river, in London, over a two-inch-wide (34 mm) and 787-foot-long (240 meters) high-wire. The car made it successfully to the other side establishing a insane but, nonetheless, extraordinary new world record.
Crushing cars should be obligatory for every human being. We should all spend a day in a junkyard at least once a month. It would be more calming that a bathtub full of Valium. Just watching this video with four ways to dispose of cars relaxes me. I want to try them all.
Holy mother of God, this has to be one of the craziest vehicle stunts I've ever seen: The Formula 1 team Lotus got one of their giant trailer trucks to jump over one of their race cars running at full speed. It is absolutely insane.
This flying car looks pretty damn cool in both flight and road modes, but especially when it opens up like a transformer. After being certified by the Slovak Federation of Ultra-Light Flying, the AeroMobil 3.0 has started final regular flight-testing this month.
This is fun and I don't care it was made by the car manufacturer. I care that someone was crazy enough to think about putting a freaking car inside one of those giant inflatable balls—called Zorbs, apparently, perhaps the biggest ever made—and then pushed it down a hill. I only wish they put people inside.
It doesn't matter how much money you have. If you are not tough enough, you can't afford this car. If that were true we would be living in a completely different planet with a completely different set of principles. But this is Earth and this video is just an ad. A pretty good one.
This is the all-new Polaris Slingshot, a $20,000 173 HP three-wheel car obviously designed by Wayne Enterprises to realize the dreams of Batman and Robin wannabes across the planet. Seriously, this thing looks amazing and incredibly fun to drive, although nobody has tried it yet. Check out the videos of it in action.
Ryan Fox thought it would be a good idea to attach a GoPro camera to the center of a car wheel for his Video Sketchbook class at the University of Wisconsin. He was right, but now I'm a dizzy.
If Volvo had to appeal to Van Damme's epic split to sell more trucks, Hyundai just released this insane self-driving demonstration to try to sell their vehicles: A group of stuntmen jump from the roof of moving cars leaving them on their own. It's impressive to see the cars driving and braking without a driver.
