While most of the videos on the Internet that involve thermite end up destroying stuff, The Backyard Scientist decided to use the extremely hot concoction to fire a crucible for casting a sword. The result isn’t the most attractive looking thing, but still an effective weapon.
Maker The Q’s latest (and possibly greatest) build is a larger than life, fully-articulated LEGO minifig costume you can build yourself using cardboard and hot glue. With more than two weeks left until Halloween, you should have plenty of time to make yours.
Pocket83’s marble sorting machine uses two bars that get slightly wider apart, such that rolling marbles over them will cause smaller ones to fall earlier than the larger ones. Not only does it make a soothing sound, it also does a great job of visualizing the bell curve.
(PG-13: Language, Gore) CineFix summon the Halloween spirit by listing some of the most popular horror movie tropes as well as some stellar examples. There’s the classic location, the person whom you just know is going to make it until the end, and… behind you!
(PG-13) Videogamedunkey talks about the video game industry’s never ending quest for beautiful, detailed, or realistic graphics. While it is mainly a visual medium, the quality of a game’s graphics – and all other aspects – should be second to the quality of its gameplay.
Like the Biersafe, but way slicker, Timo Hänsel’s in-ground Bierkühler Deluxe is fully motorized, and packed with LEDs so drinks make a dramatic entrance as they rise up from the ground, where they remain cool and out of the sun. It looks like it was a pain to set up though.
The A.V. Club visited the factory of legendary pinball maker Stern Pinball. The video shows a few of the more than 3,500 parts that make up a pinball machine, before walking us through the assembly process. They’ve moved to a bigger factory since we visited.
“There are generally no shark builds that can justify bottom tier.” TierZoo applies his eSports analysis on sharks, which have a couple of the most infamous builds in the real life meta. They’re proof that Blizzard is part of nature – they both take way too long to nerf OP stuff.
Watch as artist Juliana LePine painstakingly sculpts an incredibly detailed clay sculpture of musician Freddie Mercury in one of his most iconic and victorious poses. We had no idea that sculptors started by building a skeleton before applying the skin and other details.
Maker Ivan Miranda shows off one of the cooler 3D printed objects we’ve seen – an oversize replica of one of those rotating rubber stamps, made possible thanks to pliable, rubberlike Fiberflex 40D filament. He neglected to mirror the letters, but it’s still a nifty build.
Alternative band The Academic used the slight delay in Facebook Live’s video streaming to record and remix their song Bear Claws on the spot. By showing their stream on a screen while they were streaming, they were able to play along with their past selves.
Natural Nerd shows how to build a countertop machine which can dispense multiple beverages. It uses aquarium pumps to move liquids into your cup. It’s best for tea, juice, and other non-carbonated drinks. Full materials list and build details available on Instructables.
We recently spent a day on the drag strip behind the wheel of the absolutely bonkers 840 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. We didn’t have the skills to get near its 9.65-second 1/4 mile record, but it still was the fastest accelerating car we’ve ever driven.
