THE BEST Colin Furze

Screw Tank Boat Upgrade

Screw Tank Boat Upgrade

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.

Jet Suit Hoverboarding

Jet Suit Hoverboarding

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.

BTTF Extendable Baseball Bat

BTTF Extendable Baseball Bat

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.

Social Distance Bike

Social Distance Bike

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.

Homemade Screw Tank

Homemade Screw Tank

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.

Jet-powered Vacuum Cleaner

Jet-powered Vacuum Cleaner

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.

Jet-powered Landspeeder

Jet-powered 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.

Killer Rip-Tire Spinner

Killer Rip-Tire Spinner

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.

20,000 Watt Electric Drift Trike

20,000 Watt Electric Drift Trike

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.

Giant Firework Pendulum

Giant Firework Pendulum

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.

Airsoft Machine Gun Briefcase

Airsoft Machine Gun Briefcase

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 Fold-out Shield

Colin Furze’s Fold-out Shield

After making a replica of the wrist-mounted axe from Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, Colin Furze made a replica of the fold-out umbrella shield from the game. It may not look like much, but it was one of his most difficult projects yet. Build video here.

Colin Furze’s Wrist-Mounted Axe

Colin Furze’s Wrist-Mounted Axe

Colin Furze promotes the upcoming action RPG Sekiro Shadows Die Twice by making a working replica of the game’s wrist-mounted axe. The axe is secured to the mount on his arm by magnets and a rubber hose, allowing him to swap axes easily.

Hydraulic Scissor Lift Shoes

Hydraulic Scissor Lift Shoes

Go go gadget feet! Mad inventor Colin Furze went to great lengths to make himself taller. He made a pair of scissor lifts, welded them to a pair of shoes then powered them with a hydraulic pump. Skip to 7:18 for the surprisingly effective result.

1000 Rockets vs. 1000 Rockets

1000 Rockets vs. 1000 Rockets

Colin Furze celebrated hitting 7 million subscribers by putting a thousand rocket fireworks each on two trucks face to face, then let ’em fly. It lasted only a few seconds, but it was a glorious few seconds. Skip to 5:00 for the spectacle.

The Staircase Treadmill

The Staircase Treadmill

Inventor and maker of crazy stuff Colin Furze decided to build himself one of the most torturous pieces of home fitness equipment ever – a treadmill that runs up the staircase. Our knees hurt just watching this one. Coming downstairs looks like fun though.

The Catapult Toaster

The Catapult Toaster

Getting toast out of the toaster can be an exercise in frustration. Madman Colin Furze knows this all too well, and has the ultimate solution. His latest build ensures the toast is ejected well above the top of the toaster, ensuring no more burnt fingers.

Colin Furze’s Giant Christmas Tree

Colin Furze’s Giant Christmas Tree

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.

Shredder Mailbox

Shredder Mailbox

Given the fact that 95% of all of the mail we get is junk we love the idea that Colin Furze came up with – a mailbox that automatically shreds anything delivered into it – including thick catalogs, cardboard packaging, and possibly the mailman’s hand.

Mr. Bean’s RC Armchair

Mr. Bean’s RC Armchair

Colin Furze helped fellow child at heart Mr. Bean celebrate the latter’s 10 million subscriber milestone on YouTube. The inventor made a working replica of the remote-controlled armchair from the Mr. Bean cartoon using the guts of an electric wheelchair.

Colin Furze’s Gas Heated Umbrella

Colin Furze’s Gas Heated Umbrella

“Mary Poppins eat your heart out!” The mad inventor Colin Furze is preparing for the cold weather by making his own take on the umbrella. He created one with a stainless steel canopy and a patio heater underneath. It also serves as a stove and armor.

Spinning Belt of Knives

Spinning Belt of Knives

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.

Making a 2-Stroke Table Lamp

Making a 2-Stroke Table Lamp

Colin Furze made a steampunk bedside lamp that you wouldn’t want anywhere near your bed. It’s a lamp that’s powered by a chainsaw engine, which is connected to a generator. It even has a throttle so he can rev up the light.

Jet Powered Micro Scooter

Jet Powered Micro Scooter

Colin Furze made his son the coolest kid on the block by modifying the kid’s scooter with an electric jet engine. But don’t worry, Furze restrained his inner madman this time. The scooter is just powerful enough to move the kid from a standstill.

Bicycle of Springs

Bicycle of Springs

“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.

Homemade Hydraulic Hulkbuster

Homemade Hydraulic Hulkbuster

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.
