Making Kids Toys More Dangerous

Making Kids Toys More Dangerous

Kids who grew up in the 1980s and before could almost certainly count on their toys to offer some risk of injury. But thanks to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the fear of lawsuits, they’re far tamer these days. The Backyard Scientist teamed up with William Osman and Peter Sripol to Make Toys Dangerous Again.

The CutScene

The CutScene

(Gore) The VFX artists at Corridor usually embellish live-action footage. They went full-CGI this time out, poking fun at video games, their over-the-top cutscenes, and how trapping a difficult boss in an unskippable cutscene might be the one way to take him down.

Adorable Circle of Life Book

Adorable Circle of Life Book

Artist Alex Solis created this hilariously warped “children’s” book which features cute and fuzzy animals doing what they do in real life – eating other smaller, cuter and fuzzier animals. Solis also made a coloring book along the same lines.

Levitating Hot Dog Cooker

Levitating Hot Dog Cooker

Inspired by science instructor Bruce Yeany, YouTuber NightHawkInLight wanted to see if he could cook a hot dog while it floated in the air. NightHawk improved on Yeany’s compressed air levitation, using a nichrome and copper coil to heat his wiener instead of a blowtorch.

SNL: The Muppet Show

SNL: The Muppet Show

If you watch The Muppet Show, one thing you can always count on is an appearance by those grumpy old hecklers Statler and Waldorf. Well, in this sketch from SNL, Kenan Thompson and Keegan-Michael Key play a couple of security guards who have had quite enough of their disruptive behavior and look to put an end to it.

How to Make a Tricycle

How to Make a Tricycle

A normal tricycle has one wheel in the front and two in the back for balance. But nobody says the three wheels have to be arranged that way. So builder The Q got to work putting together a tricycle that has all three wheels arranged in parallel. It looks harder to ride than a regular bicycle, but it sure is unique.

How to Remove Corn from the Cob

How to Remove Corn from the Cob

Removing corn kernels from the cob can be an arduous and time-consuming task. But not so for Handy Geng, who built himself a ridiculously over-engineered machine that spews out corn kernels by the hundreds after loading up its magazine. He probably should invest in a bigger basket though.

Basically Another Tom Scott Video

Basically Another Tom Scott Video

Tom Scott loves to visit interesting places, share fascinating stories, and speak about them with authority. After amusing us with his spot-on impression of the vlogger, comedian Matt Colbo is back with multiple Tom Scotts, envisioning what might happen they cloned the YouTube celeb.

The Pizza Compass

The Pizza Compass

A normal compass uses the Earth’s magnetism to point North. But wouldn’t it be useful if compasses could point to more specific things? WIRED challenged maker Joe Grand to build a compass that sniffs out places that serve pizza and points its user in the right direction for a pepperoni fix no matter where they are.

Ferrell and Grohl Sing Leather and Lace

More Dunkey More Problems

More Dunkey More Problems

Videogamedunkey presents the debut single off of his fictitious album “Yo Peter, pass me the meatballs.” The prolific video game reviewer offers up a rap about his mad YouTube and gaming skillz set to the tune of The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mo Money Mo Problems, which itself is set to the tune of Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out.

Ok, Folks.

Ok, Folks.

Fans of the LockPickingLawyer know that he’s a master at breaking into supposedly secure locking mechanisms. He also has a little catchphrase, which Kyle Anderson compiled into this brief, but satisfying matrix of some of Lawyer’s successful break-ins.

Baby Got Bach

Baby Got Bach

There I Ruined It destroys another popular track. This time they combined the Sir-Mix-A-Lot hit Baby Got Back with the classical sounds of J.S. Bach, under the direction of conductor Leonard Bernstein. Our anacondas don’t want none of this.

Ford Festiva Lawnmower

Ford Festiva Lawnmower

The Ford Festiva was a popular subcompact car sold from 1986 to 2002. You don’t see many on the road anymore. We like what Ginger Billy did with this old Festiva – converting it into a tiny pickup truck, then outfitting it with a powerful lawnmower. Now, Billy can cover more ground in less time and stay in the shade while he’s at it.

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Musician The Kiffness took footage of a strange-sounding kitty known as the “Alugalug Cat” and turned it into a smooth and mellow groove, adding just the right mix of electronic beats and velvety vocals to the cat’s melodic meows.

The Pogo Bicycle

The Pogo Bicycle

We’ve seen a bicycle that can walk, and another that can ride on ice, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a bike that can jump. Scotty and Matty Cranmer of Can’t Slow Down show off their crazy creation, which has a pair of curved, spring-loaded pogo sticks in place of wheels.

Making a Skittles Donut

Making a Skittles Donut

You could make a Skittles-flavored donut by sprinkling some of the chewy candies on a glazed Krispy Kreme, but the guys at the Hydraulic Press Channel prefer to make donuts with industrial equipment. Using a custom-machined tool, they squish some M&Ms and Skittles into toroid shapes. They look like giant Life Savers.

GrubHub in the 1980s

GrubHub in the 1980s

We rely on food delivery services like GrubHub and DoorDash way too much these days. Can you imagine what it would have been like if tech companies tried to launch such a service back in the 1980s? Squirrel Monkey envisions a rudimentary version of GrubHub that shipped on floppy disks and ran on MS-DOS.

Spaghetti Monster Colander

Spaghetti Monster Colander

Designed by Lior Rokah Kor of housewares brand OTOTO, this festive yellow colander turns your fresh-cooked spaghetti into a flying spaghetti monster – like the one worshipped by Pastafarians.

Resident Evil Village with Barney

Resident Evil Village with Barney

To add to the replay value of Capcom’s Resident Evil Village demo, MarcosRC created a mod for the PC version that replaces the game’s creepy monsters with something even more terrifying: Barney the purple dinosaur. We can almost hear the pained echoes of “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family” in the distance.

I’m Bored

I’m Bored

Like many of us stuck at home during the 2020 quarantines, hehimboredlol got really bored. So they scribbled down their thoughts in the iPhone Notes app. After they got bored with that, they turned their repetitive ramblings into an animation. It’s also possible that they were lazy and just copied the text from this website.

Adam Savage Hates Duct Tape

Adam Savage Hates Duct Tape

During his 14 seasons on MythBusters, Jamie and Adam tested more than their share of myths involving duct tape.

Moschino Bubble Wrap Sneakers

Moschino Bubble Wrap Sneakers

Design house Moschino came up with these sneakers that look like they’re made from bubble wrap. But the Double Bubble sneaker’s shell is made from textured plastic that isn’t actually poppable. Given their price, we might just wrap our Nikes in some bubble wrap and packing tape. Available in Men’s and Women’s sizes.

Dark Side of the Spoon Cookbook

Dark Side of the Spoon Cookbook

Celebrate your love for food and rock music with this 96-page cookbook filled with recipes inspired by rock music.

Making the Deepest Voice

Making the Deepest Voice

We all know that inhaling helium can make your voice higher, and many of you know that sulfur hexafluoride can make it sound deeper. But Cody’s Lab is here to demonstrate what happens when you breathe in perfluorobutane, a non-toxic gas that’s almost twice as dense as the sulfur hexafluoride.
