Instead, it is a kite, a pretty damn realistic 10-foot Dragon Kite. Continue reading Holy Molly! This 10-Foot Dragon Kite Is Incredibly Realistic Looking!

1:5 Scale Jaguar XK120 Is A Kiddie Ride For Grown Ups That Goes 38MPH

Costing nearly two third of an entry level Jaguar XE and almost 70 percent pricer than the cheapest car in the United States, the Adult’s Jaguar XK120 Mini Roadster is certainly a luxury to have just like its real-life counterpart. And at 1:5 scale, this is the kiddie ride for grown ups, which means, it can only accommodate a person and 50 percent or more (if you are taller) of your body will be completely exposed to the elements, and the tiny replica windscreen is not going to stop bugs from hitting your face at 38 miles an hour. It is a roadster, so I guess that’s ok, but still, having more than half of your body exposed is a lot (hence a kiddie ride which we can’t stop saying).

everyone knows the obligatory car stunts in James Bond movies are make believe, but that doesn’t stop fans from admiring and fantasized about those stunts. seriously, don’t do that. those stunts are, well, stunts and should be limited to your fantasy. you certainly don’t want to ruin your lovely Aston Martin DBS V12 and not to mention endangering your life and others in process, but not if those stunts are performed over a miniature, like this James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car.

The Star Wars Battling Fighters Slot Car Set

when we think slot cars, slotted tracks and fancy toy race cars comes to mind. in another word, we expected nothing less than four-wheeled miniature models, but that’s not the case with the The Star Wars Battling Fighters Slot Car Set. unless you have serious skills in piloting RC aircraft, the The Star Wars Battling Fighters Slot Car Set is your best bet in recreating the memorable Death Star “Trench Run” scene from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and being a slot car set, you get the boon of endless run (in this case, chase), unless one knocks out the other. you see, unlike regular slot cars, these spacecrafts, namely Luke Skywalker’s “Red Five” X-Wing and Lord Vader’s TIE Advanced Fighter, from the galaxy far, far away are actually wider than the track which makes overtaking an impossibility without knocking each other or one of the other out of the track.

The Observatory Class Telescope

chin up at night and you will be able to awe at the majestic stars filled dark sky, but if you want to see further such as peering into the Orion Nebula or perhaps be dazzled by trillion stars of the Andromeda Galaxy, then you will need more than just a pair of naked eyes – this calls for a piece of hardware identical to those used by the likes of the U.S. Naval Observatory and NASA, such as The Observatory Class Telescope as offered up by Hammacher. equipped with a 20-inch diameter aperture, the scope is capable of letting in some 5,000 times more light than human eye, thus allowing your vision to wander deep into the space where until now, you could see on BBC or the National Geographic channel or when visiting your local science center or observatory.
