If you need something crash or safety tested in Switzerland, you send it to the Dynamic Test Center. In this video, they decided to load up a shopping cart with groceries, then first run it into a car at 11 mph, then really amp things up by smashing it into a wall at more than 73 mph.
Carbon fiber is used in auto racing and aerospace industries because of its strength and lightweight properties. But can this stuff that’s basically made from woven material and resin stand up to the mighty hydraulic press? Tune in and find out.
After proving a golf ball could be split on the edge of an axe blade, How Ridiculous decided to step things up, as they attempted to do the same by dropping bowling balls from a great height to achieve a similar, if not quite as precise split, accompanied by a satisfying thud.
While we have no idea why two of these these large wind turbines in India burst into flames, but one of them ended up producing an accidental spectacle, as its blade spun at crazy speeds and created a giant spiral of black smoke before eventually giving in.
If we were ballsy enough to toss live ammo into a pot filled with flesh-melting molten aluminum, we’d do it wearing a firesuit from behind a blast shield. Not so for the Backyard Scientist, who turned up in cargo shorts and a Hawaiian shirt for this ridiculously dangerous “experiment.”
(Gore) The Hydraulic Press Channel subjected a ballistic gel human hand and foot to the power of their deadly press, resulting in a nasty mush that isn’t too far off of what it would look like if you put an actual hand or foot in there. The crunching sound is especially gut-wrenching.
