World’s Fastest FPV

World’s Fastest FPV

YouTuber Omegoolibird shows off what is said to be the fastest first-person view RC plane. The customized Vasamodel Fusion can hit speeds up to 265 mph thanks to its 2650 KV electric motor, which can spin at speeds up to 35,000 RPM. It sounds like an angry swarm of bees.

1000 Harmonics

1000 Harmonics

Guitarist Alan Gogoll lets his fingers fly across the strings and frets of his acoustic guitar, cranking out a whopping 1000 harmonics in just under 90 seconds. Our fingertips developed blisters just watching this.

High-speed Meat Slicer

High-speed Meat Slicer

Next time you go to the deli and it takes them 5 minutes to slice your meat, ask them to replace their machine with the TEXTOR TS700-UB. This industrial slicer spins up to 2000 rpm, cranking through pepperoni, bacon, and other meats, and neatly stacking them in the process.

Insanely Fast R/C Plane

Insanely Fast R/C Plane

By strapping a turbine powered delta wing R/C plane to a catapult, these guys were able to fly a model aircraft at speeds up to 451 mph, making it nearly as fast as a full-size jet plane. We’re impressed that the pilot was able to control and land it.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Nürburgring Lap

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Nürburgring Lap

When it comes to racing around a track, they say “smooth is fast,” and that’s most definitely the case in this record-breaking, yet cool and calm 6:47.3 lap of the Nordschleife, set in the shockingly fast new Porsche 911 GT2 RS, by driver Lars Kern.

Water-powered Jet Trike

Water-powered Jet Trike

You’d think that a 3-wheeler powered by water wouldn’t go very fast, but as we recently learned, liquid can generate some crazy force when under pressure. Riding atop a 6,000 PSI water tank, François Gissy was able to go from 0 to 62 mph in 0.55s with a 162mph top speed.

Battle of the Strings

Battle of the Strings

Guitarist Joe Bonamassa takes on cellist Tina Guo in an epic speed battle. They lead off with Flight of the Bumblebee then head straight into the track Woke Up Dreaming. We couldn’t pick a clear winner, other than the audience at Carnegie Hall.

World’s Fastest Racing Drone

World’s Fastest Racing Drone

We knew that drones could go fast, but not this fast. Here’s some grainy first-person footage from flyer Patrick Gaborik’s incredibly fast miniquadcopter, which has been tracked at speeds up to 145 mph. The noise the motors make sound like it’s going to rip itself apart.

World’s Fastest Flute Player

World’s Fastest Flute Player

We have no way of knowing if he missed any notes, but to our untrained ears, flutist Armin Gheitasi’s 300 bpm, sub-45 second performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee is the fastest we’ve ever heard anyone play any wind instrument.

A New Hope in 73 Seconds

A New Hope in 73 Seconds

So you just watched Rogue One and feel the need to rewatch Episode IV right after? Well, if you don’t have 2 hours to spare, Lord Aussem condensed the film down to just 73 seconds by speeding things up just a little bit each time a laser is fired.

Fastest Woman on a Bicycle

Fastest Woman on a Bicycle

Denise Mueller broke the women’s paced bicycle land speed record, reaching 147.7 mph. She rode a custom KHS bicycle, as she drafted inches behind driver Shea Holbrook in a Range Rover Sport SVR which shielded her from the punishing winds of Utah’s salt flats.

World’s Fastest Shopping Cart

World’s Fastest Shopping Cart

If you need something crash or safety tested in Switzerland, you send it to the Dynamic Test Center. In this video, they decided to load up a shopping cart with groceries, then first run it into a car at 11 mph, then really amp things up by smashing it into a wall at more than 73 mph.

Rubik’s Cube vs. Usain Bolt

Rubik’s Cube vs. Usain Bolt

On a good day, we can solve a Rubik’s Cube in about a half hour, but Anthony Brooks can do it in just a few seconds. Here, he proves his speed by taking on Olympic gold-medal winner Usain Bolt’s incredible speed.

Flight of the Tuba Bee

Flight of the Tuba Bee

Members of the Canadian Brass let their fingers go flying at breakneck speeds in this classic footage from one of their performances of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s high-speed orchestral interlude. A more recent incarnation of the group shows off their chops here.

Fastest Electric Car

Fastest Electric Car

Developed by Stuttgart University’s GreenTeam, this tiny electric vehicle recently achieved an insane 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) time of just 1.779 seconds, making it almost a full second faster than a $2 million Bugatti Veyron.

Fast Workers

Fast Workers

People are Awesome compiled this series of people making short work of their jobs, as they flip pancakes, wash windows, and make pizzas at lightning speeds. Though we think sometimes it’s all about the flourish rather than the end result.

World’s Fastest Everything

World’s Fastest Everything

Welpey Studios compiled this montage of people, animals, and things that are insanely fast at what they do. Seriously, our hands hurt just watching that hand puncher guy. And is it just us, or is that ferris wheel defective?

World’s Fastest Backhoe

World’s Fastest Backhoe

Unless you need to move quickly between construction sites, we can see no practical reason to build a backhoe that can drive 73mph. But that didn’t stop JCB from proving it could be done, with pro driver Matthew Lucas at its controls.

GT-R Ice Driving

GT-R Ice Driving

Driver Roman Rusinov powers the 540hp AWD Nissan GT-R to a staggering speed of 182.8mph in the car known as “Godzilla” across the icy surface of Siberia’s frozen Lake Baikal, breaking the previous Russian ice-driving record.

Speeding Tank

Speeding Tank

While you might think of tanks as slow-moving vehicles, it turns out that some of them can actually drive quite quickly. Here’s the Leclerc MBT tearing up desert at nearly 45mph. Though it still can’t beat this tank.

Insanely Fast Robot

Insanely Fast Robot

We’ve always assumed the main reason that robots are in factories was to reduce labor costs. But after watching this clip of the Stäubli TP80, you’ll realize our future masters have another major advantage.

Speedy Potato Peeling

Speedy Potato Peeling

We already know how to peel garlic in a jiffy, so let’s add one more speed-up to our kitchen repertoire, with the fastest way to remove a baked potato skin (though we still like to eat ours.)

Rubik’s Cube Blindfold Record

Rubik’s Cube Blindfold Record

Speedcuber Marcell Endrey recently set a world record for solving a standard 3×3 Rubik’s Cube while blindfolded at 28.8s. We wouldn’t be able to solve the damned thing if we had ten eyes.

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

This turbine powered R/C plane sounds more like an F-16 than a toy, reaching top speeds over 360mph. We have no idea how you can fly and land this thing remotely without crashing it.

Driving at 462 MPH

Driving at 462 MPH

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it might be like to race down the road at nearly 500 MPH, lean back, drop into full-screen 1080p, and watch the Speed Demon fly from every conceivable angle.

Rubik’s Cube World Record

Rubik’s Cube World Record

Powered by a Samsung Galaxy SII and LEGO NXT, the CubeStormer II robot beat the human record for solving the Cube, with a time of just 5.35 secs. We certainly can’t rearrange stickers that fast.

Opening Bottles Like a Boss

Opening Bottles Like a Boss

While he might not crack open 200 beer bottles in 80 seconds, we give this waiter the win on style points as he rapidly opens a whole tray of bottles with a few flicks of his wrist.

Inside the Fastest Bike

Inside the Fastest Bike

Go for a ride inside the cockpit with driver Rocky Robinson as he sets the land speed record for a 2-wheel streamlined motorcycle, zipping along the Bonneville Salt Flats at a gut-rumbling 376mph.

Nürburgring FWD Record

Nürburgring FWD Record

Renault takes us on a record-smashing 8:07.79 ride around Nürburgring in the Mégane RS Trophy, making it the fastest-ever lap around the track in a production FWD car. Impressive for a 265hp car.

Fast Five (Trailer 2)

Fast Five (Trailer 2)

The newest trailer for Justin Lin’s Fast Five isn’t too different from the previous one, unless you count more action, more stunts, more explosions and a little $100 million dollar bank heist as the same.

Ice Driving Speed Record

Ice Driving Speed Record

Rally champ Juha Kankkunen took a 12-cylinder Bentley Continental Supersports out for a spin… on the frozen Baltic Sea… at 205.48mph… setting a new world’s record for fastest ice drive ever.
