Every year, Internet celebrities Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat will make a video to mark the year’s Halloween. This year is no different. And if anything, I think this year’s Halloween Levitating Star Wars Speeder Bike should be one of the most memorable because, Speeder Bike. For Halloween 2017, Jesse Wellens and model Carmella Rose dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, and played out Battle of Endor on the streets of New York City. The pair cruised around NYC on a custom made Speeder Bike as seen on Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. Continue reading Watch Luke Skywalker And Princess Leia Cruises NYC On A Speeder Bike
Been to a carnival? Good. Now, if you felt carnival games are a little scammy. Well, the good news is, you are not wrong. I mean, seriously, you didn’t think that could have it this easy, did you? Paying some loose change and you’d get guarantee yourself a big-ass plushy to impress your girl? That would be too easy. Usually you had to drop more than a few loose coins because the truth is, it will take more than a few times to actually ‘win’ – that’s if you even can win. And the event that you did win, you’d be overpaying for the perceived “expensive” plushy. Continue reading You’ve Always Felt Carnival Games Are Scammy, Now One Guy Prove That It Is
Talk about too fast, too crazy. Here’s one R/C aircraft that makes a jaw-dropping 727 kilometers-per-hour, or 451 miles-an-hour. At that speed, it is effectively supersonic proportional to the scale and it is definitely one R/C aircraft reserved only for the elite (remote control) pilots. And by that, I mean that the pilot has to have some serious quick hand-and-eye coordination. The model in question is a delta wing R/C Speeder “Inferno” and the propulsion responsible for its insane, recording-breaking speed is a hobbyist turbine jet, Turbine Behotec 180. Continue reading Watch An R/C Plane Breaks 450 MPH, Well, That’s If You Can Actually See It
When it comes to gun suppressor, AKA silencer, people often laugh at how Hollywood portrays it as a stuff of absolute silence. Obviously, that is not the case, but that does not discredit what this gun accessory tries to achieve and the science behind it. Until now, we have ably read about the theory on how it works and some of us might even saw the animation of what likely happens when a projectile passed through a suppressor, but nobody actually seen what really happens on the inside. Well, not anymore. Thanks to Smarter Every Day, AKA Destin Sandlin, the world now gets to have a first hand look at how a suppressor actually works. Continue reading See-through Suppressor In Super Slow-mo Is Strangely Mesmerizing To Watch
In the latest in the Gymkhana series, Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing, in conjunction with Toyo Tires, takes Gymkhana to an even higher level, like quite literally. In this latest instalment, celebrity rally driver Ken Block got behind the wheels of a 1,400 horsepower, twin-turbo methanol-fueled 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2, rolling on Toyo Proxes R888R tires, up the legendary 14,000 feet (4,267 meters) Colorado’s Pikes Peak. The result? A lot of smoke and backfire… on the hood (so, does this make it a front fire, instead?). Yes. On the hood! Continue reading Watch Ken Block Takes On Pikes Peak With Lots Of Smoke And Donuts
When Alfred Hitchcock’s horror-thriller The Birds (1963, Alfred J. Hitchcock Productions) was aired, people probably didn’t think seagulls would be so much of a nightmare than snagging your seaside picnic food, or dropping shit on unsuspecting beachgoers in the worst case scenario. But a 2012 video posted on YouTube will make you think twice about your presumption of these seemingly harmless avian creatures. The video, which has for some reasons only gone viral recently, captured the large seafaring bird devouring a pigeon. Yes. A freaking pigeon! And if you have not already noticed, a pigeon ain’t no small bird! Continue reading Seagull Ate A Pigeon Whole, I Gasped Hitchcock’s The Birds Is Happening!
Remember the helicopter that appeared to be floating into the sky when the frame rate of the camera syncs with the rotor’s revolution per minute? Impressive and weird, right? Well, as it turns out that’s not the only one that demonstrate this weirdly beautiful phenomena. Here’s another one, but this time, it didn’t involved a chunk of flying metal. Instead it was a bird. So this was what happen: YouTuber by the handle of GingerBeard posted a video of a bird that happen to flew past his security camera. Like the floaty helicopter, the camera’s capture frame rate happens to match the flap speed of the loitering bird and the result was a mind-bending optical illusion. Continue reading When Camera Frame Rate Syncs With A Bird’s Flapping, Weird Thing Happens
Robots are precise. I get it, but would you entrust your hand’s wellbeing to a robot’s precision? Specifically in a game of five-finger fillet and with a real knife? I don’t know. I probably wouldn’t. YouTuber Irfon Automation, however, seems to had a lot of faith in robots and in his case, a Staubli TX40 Robot and of course, what he claims as his talent for programming that enable this trusty (or not?) metal arm to do passes of five-finger fillet. Ok. Maybe, whether or not, Irfon Automation had a shit load of confidence doesn’t matter, because the hand on the table wasn’t his anyways. It appears that his neighbor had volunteered and so, I am guessing his neighbor was the one that had shit lot of faith in him (and little yellow armed Staubli there).

Amazon is not alone when it comes to replacing humans with robots in sorting out packages. China’s delivery giant STO Express also has its own robot-aided sorting system at its Xuzhou sorting center where it uses numerous vacuum bot-like self-charging robots to drop individual packages into the respective chutes destined for delivery. According to the person-in-charge, the 20,000 square meter facility is capable of sorting between 18,000 and 20,000 in an hour with minimal human intervention. Thanks to this system, STO Express has saved itself 70 percent on costs over human workers who will not be able to work tirelessly 24/7 in the first place. Continue reading Robots In China Sorting 20K Packages An Hour Is A Sight To Behold
When a helicopter in motion is captured on video, what we saw is a phenomenon known as aliasing whereby we a general blur along with occasional pronounced blades that appeared to be rotating in alternating directions. However, if you managed to capture the footage at a frame rate exactly the same revolution per minute of the spinning object, such as in the example of a helicopter, it will appear as though the blades aren’t moving at all.
