Keep your space toasty this holiday season with Old Spice’s very special video yule log, which features over 3500 explosions, Terry Crews bringing the heat, a shout-out to moms, and the OTHER Old Spice guy. Take it mobile and watch the full vid to find every holiday Easter egg.
“Of all the stupid things I’ve made… it’s actually quite useful.” Mad inventor Colin Furze has become more and more ambitious, but his latest invention is a curio suggested by one of his fans. It’s a portable fireplace that has a hilariously Furzian way of stoking its flames.
David Windestal has been entertaining us for a while with his rocket knife-powered destructive antics for a while. This time he and his pals pulled out all the stops, with a nighttime run with LEDs, sparklers, spray paints, and an enormous fireball… all to create modern art.
You might have seen videos or guides online about the propane or MAPP gas gun. It emits a tiny fireball that goes through a tube before diffusing with a loud bang. The man who came up with the idea is Al Stahler, and now he’s taking orders for custom made Plasma Poppers.
Just because you have a fancy fire suppression system in place doesn’t mean it will work when you need it. To ensure their system is fully functional, the Fort Indiantown Gap Army Reserve switched on the extinguisher system in their new helicopter maintenance facility.
Domino fanatic Kaplamino’s latest run doesn’t feature thousands of tiles falling down, but it does offer something pretty different – a series of chain reactions which kick off using matches, fireworks, and other pyrotechnic devices – and a bit more waiting around than usual.
A fire starter that works by ramming a small piston into a cylinder. This creates enough heat to ignite tinder or char cloth. Clickspring’s version is quite expensive, but it’s made in the USA out of aluminum and brass to ensure durability and a great fit. Skip to 2:47.
Primus’ Kamoto is a foldable fire pit and grill – great for places where it’s difficult or prohibited to have fire on the ground. Its wood/charcoal pit is protected from wind on the sides but is vented underneath. It also has an ash tray to keep the ground clear.
Instructables contributor Mikeasaurus shows off his ridiculously dangerous looking creation, a skateboard which leaves a fiery trail in its wake. It drips out a small amount of fuel triggered by a foot-controlled switch, and ignites it with an electric sparker. Full build log here.
The Q shows us how to build a structurally-sound miniature house entirely out of wooden matchsticks, without any glue, then proceeds to burn it to the ground. Build one for yourself, and you’ll feel like a god as you control the fate of your tiny architectural creation.
After building a car engine we could see inside of, Warped Perception split some model rocket engines down the middle and sealed them under plexiglas so we can watch them ignite. We think an acrylic tube would burn more accurately, but it’s still awesome to watch.
Sculptor and makeup artist Akihito Ikeda is the man behind this incredible Elite Creature collectible – a half-scale (26″ tall) replica of his terrifyingly-awesome flaming skull he created back in 2015. Limited to 500 pieces, pre-orders start at Monsterpalooza 2017, 4/7-4/9/17.
In a scene that plays out like the end of Terminator 2, watch as these disused aluminum car rims are melted down in a hot furnace, so they can be reincarnated into other products. We kept waiting for those screaming heads to start popping out of the molten metal.
A fantastically gruesome replacement for the logs in your gas fireplace or fire pit. Each skull is made from heat-tolerant ceramic and lava granules, layered over a steel structure. They’re not cheap, but they are certainly awesome. Also available in white. (Thanks Doug!)
