Drone Racing League Built The Fastest Racing Drone, Made World Record

It is official. The world’s fastest drone is the RacerX, built by Drone Racing League (DRL). RacerX set the Guinness World Records for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter as it swooped back and forth across a measurement course of 328 feet (100 meters), clocking in a mind-bending average top speed of 163.5 miles per hour (263 km/h!). This record-making quadcopter was the handiwork Ryan Gury, DRL’s Director of Product, who was backed by DRL’s very own team of expert drone engineers.

Centre Spin Is A Minimalist Fidget Spinner That You Never Knew You Need

If you have been following this blog, you will notice we hardly mention fidget spinners until of late when one custom fidget spinner actually piqued our interest. Sorry to say, I am in the camp that thought fidget spinners are kind of lame (though we don’t discriminate them, just so you know), but when I first lay eyes on the Centre Spin, I felt compelled to share it with you folks because it is, you know, classy. Before you get acquaint with Centre Spin, may I suggest you purge everything you know about fidget spinners because Centre Spin is unlike any other. It didn’t even look one to begin with and that’s just one of the many beauties it possesses. Continue reading Centre Spin Is A Minimalist Fidget Spinner That You Never Knew You Need

SnapDice: Your Fate Is At The Hands Of Rare Earth Magnets

Rolling the dice is a simple yet, kind of messy affair. You never know where they will end up at (likely the floor) and hence the need for a dice rolling tray. Speaking rolling tray, whether you already own a couple or not, here’s an interesting take of the rolling tray that might just pique your interest: the SnapDice. SnapDice is no ordinary dice rolling tray. Beside sporting a warm, luxurious look lend to it by premium exotic hardwoods, it also boasts neodymium magnets embedded in the board that will stop the dice on their track swiftly and quickly, thus ending a roll with Continue reading SnapDice: Your Fate Is At The Hands Of Rare Earth Magnets

How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

First we have the weirdest confectionary, now there’s what we thought could be the craziest saw-off shotgun ever. Inspired by the movie Killing Them Softly (Plan B Entertainment, 2012), YouTuber Kjaskaar wants to find out if the sawed-off shotgun featured in the movie works in real-life. For the uninitiated, the shotgun featured in the ‘Poker Heist’ scene was nothing short of ridiculous. Unlike some sawed-off shotguns that have some inches lopped off, the Killing Them Softly shotgun has all of its barrel sawed off, pretty much leaving only the chambers. Continue reading How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

Chanel Is Selling $2K Boomerang. Is Fashion Apocalypse Upon Us?

Seriously. Can someone point out what’s wrong with the creativity industry? In particular, the fashion design industry? Because I don’t get where the designers have gotten the creativity juice, or the lack thereof, from. First, consumers were hit up with clear knee jeans, followed by a pair of completely clear jeans. And oh, let’s not forget about the hilarious dirty work-saving, pre-muddied denim too. Just when you thought those are about as ridiculous as fashion sense can get, you realized there’s designer bag that apparently took inspiration from cheap black and blue bags commonly used in Asia and even more recently, one that looks like a 99 cents tote bag. Continue reading Chanel Is Selling $2K Boomerang. Is Fashion Apocalypse Upon Us?

KILLSPENCER Introduces Handcrafted Leather Accessories For Dogs

To be honest, KILLSPENCER’s latest offering really surprises us. KILLSPENCER is a name synonymous with stylish products catering to style-conscious homo sapiens like you and me, but what we didn’t expect was KILLSPENCER extending this style influence to pets too. That’s right. KILLSPENCER is making uber stylish accessories for pets too – specifically for man’s best friend, fido. KILLSPENCER Dog Collection is a series of luxury pet accessories made with the same quality and craftsmanship you have come to expect from KILLSPENCER other humans-orientated products and these products promised to deliver “on all fours – style, function, comfort, and utility.” LoL!

Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

I have an idea for a better aim with slingshot. Mind you. When we talked about slingshot, we are not talking about the Y-shaped contraption fashioned out of a branch of a tree. Definitely not those used by Dennis the Menace, or Bart Simpson. We are talking about metal projectile shooting contraption worthy of a hunter, complete with arm brace, powerful rubber bands and maybe even a laser pointer like the Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot you see here. More on my idea later. First, we talked about Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot. Continue reading Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

This Dive Tank Floats On The Surface So You Dive Without Being Weighed Down

Remember how Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), led by Jar Jar Binks, dive underwater to reach Otoh Gunga in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace? In that scene, the Jedis used futuristic tiny breathing apparatus on their mouths to survive underwater. Well, the AirBuddy you see here is not that, but I’d say it is pretty damn close without endangering your life. The idea behind AirBuddy is to let avid divers explore shallow water without being bogged down by heavy and clunky dive equipment. It bridges the gap between snorkeling, which you literally just scratch the surface of the ocean, and scuba diving.

Check Out This Awesome K-2SO ‘Cosplay’ That Is Actually A Puppet

We all know how lovable and cool K-2SO is, but however much folks love this hero of Star Wars Rogue One, it is nearly impossible to cosplay as one, unless K-2SO put on some serious stones. I mean, just look at this hands and legs. Not only are his limbs unusually long, but they are super skinny too, and no normal humans is going to be convincing in a K-2SO costume. C-3PO, on the other hand, is easier, as it has average human-size limbs; all you have to do is act a little more robot-ish and act like you are afraid of every situations. Anyways, but the super thin limbs did not stop cosplayer HarteAttack Cosplay from whipping up a K-2SO costume. Continue reading Check Out This Awesome K-2SO ‘Cosplay’ That Is Actually A Puppet
