Guy Made A Pretty Damn Powerful Glock 19 Out Of Cardboard

Yes. It is Glock 19, complete with functional magazine, and it totally shoots. Perhaps most importantly, it is made mostly out of cardboard. You may have already heard of it, but for some of us here, it was a revelation. A realization that materials as simple as cardboard, papers, rubber bands, could replicate a real working pistol. Just imagine if you work it with a 3D printer with more solid materials like ABS, or even metals. Man, you could easily made a gun right in your home. Of course, the process is not as simple. Personally, I thought of crafting one myself, using cardboard, of course, but looking through the 15 minutes plus video, it sure looks like it takes some sort of talent to put together one. Patience is prerequisite too, if I may add. Continue reading Guy Made A Pretty Damn Powerful Glock 19 Out Of Cardboard

How To Make A Functional Commando’s M202 FLASH-like Rocket Launcher

With a little ingenuity, pretty much anything can be turned into a weapon. Even cardboards – as proven by the incredibly talented YouTuber, The Q. The Q here is not quite the Q from Bond movies, but I am pretty sure if this dude is given the resources Q had in the movies, he will probably be as brilliant as the fictional Q, if not more brilliant. I am serious. Just take a look his portfolio. Tell me you aren’t a wee bit impressed. Many of The Q’s projects are crazy awesome, but this one here is the best in proving that cardboard can be dangerous too.

Man Built A Working Miniature Apple II Computer And You Can Too

While many of us reminisces about the tech of the bygone era by talking about it occasionally, video game engineer Chris Larkin went about recreating it. In Chris’s case, he have a special affinity with the classic Apple II computer which he had as a kid and so he decided why not build one since he was looking for some project to work on with a tiny self-contain $9 CHIP board? So, yeah, Chris not only recreated his favorite computer, but in miniature proportion. The result is an palm-sized Apple II computer, featuring an accurately painted 3D-printed enclosure, complete with a TFT LCD display and an Apple II emulator that allows it to function like an actual Apple II.

Manned Flight Of A 76-Motor Multicopter Is Simply Mind-blowing

We have not been tracking the scary yet cool manned multicopter flight for a while. A year on, it has transitioned from an intimidating flying contraption into something a lot less scarier. However, it does not mean it is any less dangerous; it still is and so, unless you know what you are doing, do not attempt to do the same at home. Also, it has became a lot bigger. Instead of eight exposed rotors setup in a longish setup, it now takes on a quadcopter layout but instead of four motors, each quadrant has a whopping 19 Turnigy Multistar Elite 5010-274Kv outrunner motors. Continue reading Manned Flight Of A 76-Motor Multicopter Is Simply Mind-blowing

Mark Rober Created The Most Courteous Car Honk Ever

If a car can talk, the horn would be its voice and the only vocabulary it ever knew was ‘honk’ which, as most car drivers can agree on, is not exactly the most pleasant sound. There’s no emotion to it. You can’t really tell if it is a friendly honk or otherwise. The best way to communicate your intention is probably a digital display which the automobiles of the future may have, but until then, your friendliness can only be conveyed with this DIY horn, dubbed as the Nicest Car Horn Ever by Mark Rober. The one-horn-does-it-all honking does not go down well with Rober and therefore, he decided to cobble together a three-horn system in addition to his VW Jetta’s stock horn. Continue reading Mark Rober Created The Most Courteous Car Honk Ever

Xstation Is When Slim Xbox One Marries Playstation 4 Slim

If you are not a fanboy of any particular game console, you’d be torn like Sheldon did in Big Bang Theory when it comes to purchasing one. The simplest solution?

Not only does it solved the one slot remaining dilemma, you’d be saving your a space and make your home entertainment console a lot neater.

Look! Here’s A Fully Functional Microwave That Plays Games Too

In segment called Fuze’s Invention Show, or FISH, British mad garage inventor Colin Furze takes up the challenge of inventing something to solve problems pitched by fans. Late last May, something very interesting popped up. A fan by the moniker of Board Chefs, AKA Dan Ibstons, (who is not quite a chef but a car mechanic, btw) asked Colin about killing the waiting time when cooking. You know, time spent drumming your fingers on the kitchen countertop while waiting for the pan heat up, or the microwave oven to be done – those kind of inevitable waiting time.

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.

Realistic Pigeon Shoes Freak Out The Internet, But Not The Pigeons

Usually we refrain from posting stuff of questionable origin or stuff that we can’t get hold of the origin. This pigeon shoes here, however, has weirdness through the roof and therefore, we are compelled to share it with you guys. Apparently, this pair of life-like pigeon heels are the handiwork of Japanese shoemaker Kyoto Ohata and it is so freaking real that it may very well leave a bad taste in animal rights activists. The shoes are, of course, not made of real pigeons. Rest assure that taxidermy is not involved here; that will be gross. They are actually made by fairly regular felt materials and metal parts that are NOT harvest from any avian creature.
