Homemade Flying Iron Man Suit

Homemade Flying Iron Man Suit

JLaserVideo has been trying for years to build a version of Iron Man’s armor that could actually fly. After a major failure, he’s finally achieved that dream. He started out with a pair of custom electric jets but settled on a ridiculous number of smaller electric motors. And when the suit isn’t being worn, its parts fly to him.

Making a Go-Kart from a Wooden Shipping Pallet

Making a Go-Kart from a Wooden Shipping Pallet

Most go-karts have a frame made from metal. But Doctor D.S. shows us how it’s possible to make a homebrew kart using a wooden shipping pallet and a 200cc gas engine. He still had to use metal for the axles and mechanicals, but it’s still an impressive build. We’d love to see how fast it goes on something besides grass, though.

Steam-powered Tricycle

Steam-powered Tricycle

Most bikes and trikes are driven by human power. But Professor Pardal Brasil created a tricycle that runs on steam power. It’s operated by burning wood to heat the water inside an oil drum, which pushes a piston that drives the rear wheels. It’s ridiculously loud and not very fast, but we still love it. It also doubles as a smoker.

Building a Ford GT40 Replica

Building a Ford GT40 Replica

Over the course of four years Benjamin Workshop created his dream car – a working replica of Ford’s Le Mans-winning GT40 race car. He’s posted numerous videos of the design, engineering, and build process, and now he’s condensed that all down to a 17-minute time-lapse. The finished car is truly a work of art.
