Because a thermite-blasting cannon isn’t crazy enough, Colin Furze used a pair of motors and propellers designed for parasailing to build himself a fully functional flying hoverbike. It’s easily one of the mad scientist’s most dangerous builds to date, but seeing how maneuverable it is almost makes us want to build…
It’s not often you come across a real-life mad scientist. They’re usually just over-the-top antagonists in comic books, but Colin Furze is the real thing. He has a penchant for building things that often blow up—on purpose—like this impossibly dangerous-looking thermite cannon.
There’s no better way to celebrate the birth of a nation than by blowing stuff up. And what more appropriate way could there be to commemorate the Fourth of July than with a shoulder-mounted bazooka that ignites and blasts fireworks into the sky?
The maniac inventor Colin Furze cooked up a truly spectacular thing this time around: he made a giant firework wheel. As in, fireworks are attached to a wheel (not unlike a windmill) which is attached to a truck which is then all lit at once which is then spun around in circles which then explodes beautifully,…
Mad genius Colin Furze did it. He made one of the coolest video game weapons—that would be the hidden blade and rope launcher in Assassin’s Creed—a reality. It works just as advertised! You can shoot out the grappling hook and then retract the rope to lift yourself up and over walls and buildings (though because this…
Waking up is hard. Anybody who can just get straight up in the morning cannot be trusted. For the rest of us, we make do with phones and alarm clocks and snoozing and coffee and showers and jobs that pay us to not be late. Perhaps we’re going to easy on ourselves. Maybe we need a high voltage ejector bed that shoots…
There’s a scene in the 2005 The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie where a lightsaber-like bread knife is not only able to slice a loaf, it toasts it at the same time. That was done with special effects, but mad Brit inventor Colin Furze has gone and built a similar contraption in real-life, and his creation works.
Life demanded it so the mad genius that is Colin Furze delivered a jet-powered go kart that can go as fast as cars on a highway. The jet-powered go kart is so ridiculous it basically spits out fire while you drive it. I mean, the metal pipes turns orange because it burns so hot. What a beast.
A Nerf gun is never not fun. If you see one of those laying around anywhere, at a toy store, in the office, in a kid's bedroom, in your dreams, you have to pick it up and get goofy with it. So how can you have more fun with something our DNA says is never not fun? By adding explosions like mad genius Colin Furze.
Mad genius Colin Furze is back again with a new invention. This time he built himself a steel safe suit with the sole purpose of standing inside a fireworks display and enjoy the views. The suit shape looks hilarious, a terrifying mix between the tin man and the scarecrow, but it works perfectly.
Colin Furze—maker of the coolest Wolverine claws—wants to build a giant butt and fart at France from Dover. That's why he has built the biggest valveless pulse jet machine ever—these engines powered the Nazi V-1 bombs that terrified London during WW2 making an infernal noise that sounds like a furious fart from hell.
Colin Furze, the guy who built fully automatic Wolverine claws, has now turned his attention to Magneto's power and made a pair of magnetic shoes. I was hoping that he found some way to make metal things levitate waving his hand, but this is still really cool.
Holy crap, Colin Furze made the best Wolverine claws replicas ever. These 12-inch steel blades are fully automatic: they can deploy or retract with the push of a button. I've seen many tries at making these, but nothing as amazing as this these ones. And for sure, you can use these as real—very—mortal weapons.
Colin Furze, maniac maker of maniac things like the maniac 50mph baby carriage, has decided to attach a fire-breathing jet propulsion system to an old woman's bike because that's what maniacs do. As you can imagine, it's not ridiculous at all.
To be completely correct, it's actually the world's fastest pram but it's easily the most extreme baby carriage ever. Made by Colin Furze, who wanted to "rock the world of child care", the world's fastest pram has 10 horsepower, four gears and can fit a baby easily.
