Not too long ago, Colin Furze built himself an incredibly rad, incredibly capable homebrew screw tank. But one thing that it couldn’t do that some military-grade screw tanks can do is float on water. So he’s back to make some mods to improve the balance and buoyancy of his ride, in an attempt to make it seaworthy.
THE BEST Colin Furze
Since getting his own DeLorean DMC-12, Colin Furze has been on a Back to the Future kick. While he’d love to have a real working Hoverboard like the one Marty McFly rode, he came up with the next best thing, strapping himself into a Gravity jetpack, and flying around with a replica board strapped to his feet.
Maker Colin Furze is a massive fan of the Back to the Future series. He recently got his hands on a DeLorean DMC 12. Rather than rip apart the pristine car and convert it to a time machine, he decided to work on another movie replica – a copy of of Griff’s extendable metal baseball bat that appeared in Back to the Future II.
In the interest of keeping his distance from others, builder Colin Furze decided that he was still too close to other people while riding his bicycle, so he built a stainless steel two-wheeler dubbed the “Highcycle” that rides more than six feet off of the ground. We’re impressed he was able to get onto this thing.
Builder Colin Furze shows off one of his craziest vehicles ever, a hydraulic tank that moves across the earth using giant screw threads. It’s the great destroyer of lawns, and makes a horribly muddy mess, but is surprisingly agile and powerful. Check out Colin’s build videos here.
For most of us, a plain old plug-in electric vacuum cleaner is enough. But not for Colin Furze. He needs everything to be bigger, badder, more powerful, and much louder. With that in mind, he upgraded his Henry vacuum cleaner with a jet engine he copped from his Landspeeder.
Previously, inventor Colin Furze teamed up with eBay UK to sponsor a gigantic AT-ACT playhouse and a full-size TIE Silencer ship. For his third Star Wars build, he’s created an awesome replica of Luke Skywalker’s X-34 landspeeder from A New Hope. While it doesn’t hover, it does drive, and is powered by jets. Build video here.
Mad inventor Colin Furze was asked by game maker Blizzard to replicate the Rip-Tire, a spinning weapon featured in Overwatch. His first version was entertaining, but not nearly as deadly as the one in the game. So with the help of a 600cc motorcycle engine, he built another version that is far more dangerous.
Builder Colin Furze previously made a pulsejet-powered drift trike. While it was fast, it wasn’t exactly environmentally-friendly. So he decided to build himself a fully-electric version, with an insane 20,000 watt power source. We’re glad he finally put a helmet on when he hit the road circuit. Build video here.
To celebrate reaching 8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, inventor Colin Furze fabricated a gigantic pendulum and loaded it up with roughly 4000 fireworks. The resulting show was quite spectacular once he started it swinging and hit the ignition. Build video here.
Colin Furze made an airsoft replica of the briefcase machine gun in Kingsman 2. It’s also remote-controlled, but the real trick was figuring out how to cock and trigger the gun with one switch. Believe it or not, there’s actually a lethal version of this setup from decades ago.
Colin Furze’s Christmas project is simple by his standards, but we imagine it still must have involved quite the conversation between him and his family. He felled a 26 foot-tall tree, chopped it into three pieces and made it look like it was sticking out his house.
Colin Furze shows off an invention so insane that we wouldn’t want to be within 1000 feet when it spins up. Apparently for no reason other than to outdo Simone Giertz’s salad chopping robot, he built a wearable belt that rapidly spins knives around his waist. It draws blood at 9:57.
“If this thing is even remotely rideable… I will be shocked.” Punmaker and stuffmaker Colin Furze’s latest crazy creation is a bicycle that has a frame made out of giant springs instead of standard tubes. It’s a stupid, nonsensical, and impractical build, and that’s why we love it.
Inventor and builder Colin Furze teamed up with eBay for a crazy challenge – to construct a working replica of Tony Stark’s Hulkbuster armor using only components purchased from the auction site. Not only did Colin succeed, he excelled. Build videos here and here.
