Watch this insanely fast drone fly at impossible speeds into the clouds

Holy crap. Once this drone decides to go, it just guns it like a warp speed rocket ship into the air. It’s so fast that I can’t believe it’s real. But Quadmovr has been showing iterations of its super fast drone for months now and everything else in the video seems to be moving at a normal speed so my God, this is… » 4/29/15 6:38pm 4/29/15 6:38pm

How to Combine Multiple Internet Connections Into One Super Fast Pipe

You may not realize it, but you probably use multiple internet connections every day: your home network, your phone, and even hotspots and other devices. The downside: you can usually only use one at a time. Imagine if you could combine them all into one huge pipe that delivers faster downloads, smooth streaming,… » 4/22/15 7:15pm 4/22/15 7:15pm

Video: Insane guy breaks the world mountain bike speed record

Blink and you'll miss him. That's because mountain bike rider Eric Barone is going faster than anyone has ever gone on a mountain bike on snow. He reached 138.752 MPH on a bike with the help of a terrifyingly steep, snowy hill and the wonder of aerodynamic gear. He goes FAST. One wrong move or one misplaced snowball… » 4/06/15 10:13pm 4/06/15 10:13pm

I Drifted Like a Madman on the Adult-Sized Crazy Cart XL

Last year's Crazy Cart gave kids the ability to drift to their heart's content, but there was one catch: with a maximum weight capacity of 140lbs, most adults couldn't ride it. No longer, the adult-sized Crazy Cart XL brings 17mph sideways hijinks to everyone. And we rode it. » 11/01/14 2:37pm 11/01/14 2:37pm

Skateboarder zips down mountains and flies by cars at insane speeds

He's going down the mountain road so fast that it looks like he's about to hit warp drive or something. I mean, damn. It seems like one little pebble on the road or one little shift in the wrong direction and he'd be catapulted off the side of the road. But he manages to hang on at ridiculous speeds. » 9/26/14 11:36pm 9/26/14 11:36pm

The World's Fastest Network Lets You Download a Movie In .2 Milliseconds

Danish researchers just created the Usain Bolt of networks. A team from the Technical University of Denmark used a single multi-core optical fiber to transfer 43 terabits per second, making it the world's fastest fiber network. I'd say it makes Google Fiber look like 1996 AOL dial-up from a decrepit rural phone line,… » 7/31/14 1:30pm 7/31/14 1:30pm

"There's a Bomb on a Bus": Speed and L.A.'s Car Chase Addiction

Before I re-watched it anticipation of its 20th anniversary, I might have dismissed Speed as more tired commentary on L.A. traffic. In actuality, I was shocked at how honestly the film portrayed Los Angeles' transportation culture in 1994. Although it did perpetuate its fair share of transit myths: Like anyone could » 6/10/14 8:00pm 6/10/14 8:00pm

Don't Drive 1,000 MPH: Raindrops Will Destroy Your Windshield

Rain hitting your windshield can mean dicey road conditions and traffic snags. According to XKCD's What If, the force of those drops hitting your windshield can also destroy your car's windshield. Lesson learned: don't drive at speeds of Mach 1.5 in a downpour if you want your glass to survive. » 4/26/14 10:00am 4/26/14 10:00am

Blink and You'll Miss This 188 MPH RC Car

Last week Samvir Thandi blew our minds with a model rocket car that hit 285 mph. But it was basically just a rocket engine with wheels that you aimed—hopefully accurately—and fired. Nick Case's remote control speed demons actually have electric motors, and his latest creation—quite possibly the world's fastest RC car » 3/27/14 3:40pm 3/27/14 3:40pm

Watch how scary fast a motorcycle goes during a high speed race

The world starts to blur. People and trees and houses and stores are just streaks of colors as you zoom by. The roads become vertical as you make your turns. You're going so fast that, if you hit anything on the road, even a stick, you're probably going to fly hundreds of feet in the air and smack yourself to pulp.… » 3/19/14 9:01pm 3/19/14 9:01pm
