The Hulk and Thor have joined forces in the MCU, but this isn’t the first time they got together on screen.

NERF Murph Dances

NERF Murph Dances

Recently, NERF revealed its new mascot, Murph. This goofball kind of looks like a walking Koosh ball because their hairy body is made up of hundreds of NERF darts.

Up Close with Micrometeorites

Up Close with Micrometeorites

The word “meteorite” conjures images of rocks falling from the heavens, but each day our planet is pelted with tons of micrometeorites, mostly smaller than grains of sand.

Woodworking without Tools

Woodworking without Tools

No, this isn’t one of those primitive building videos where they create the tools they need to make things.

If only we could use our fingers as tiny routers to curve the edges on things.

The motors used in electric-powered bicycles are usually pretty heavy. Engineer Tom Stanton wanted to see if it would be possible to rig up a tiny but strong 1kW motor from a drone to propel a bike. The trick was creating a series of gears and belts to reduce the motor’s high rotational speed while increasing its torque.

Did Cavemen Ever Really Exist?

We all have a pretty specific image in mind when someone says “caveman.” But did these thick-browed, cave-dwelling early humans exist, or is this just a caricature created by popular culture? Today I Found Out digs into what we now know about the Stone Age, and how closely it matches up with these stereotypes.

Reloading Everyday Things

There’s something so satisfying about how you reload weapons in video games. In this compilation video by Kommander Karl, he shows how you can use the same method to reload everyday items like a vacuum cleaner, a toaster, and a pencil sharpener. We do the same thing every time we use a caulk gun.
