The Ballad of G.I. Joe

The Ballad of G.I. Joe

Funny or Die’s The Ballad of G.I. Joe is instant internet gold; it’s a lonely cowboy paean to not-so-real American heroes, with appearances by Sgt. Slaughter and Julianne Moore.

Video: AESIR Embler

Video: AESIR Embler

It won’t be abducting cows anytime soon, but AESIR’s Embler is UFO-like in its use of the Coanda Effect to create lift; it’s part of a line of UAVs the aerospace company is developing.

Video: F-35 Lightning II

Video: F-35 Lightning II

Liked the F/A-18F time lapse? The 80s music is a bit jarring, but this F-35 Lighting II video is far more thorough with a thorough run-down of the assembly and flight test processes.

MTU 4000HP Engine

At 4,000hp, MTU’s Engine Series 4000 isn’t their most powerful engine (their Series 8000 makes 12,000hp), but if you own a 7,200 ton frigate, this twin-turbo V20 will do the job.

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

It’s stuff like this machine gun-equipped Ripsaw MS1 UGV that makes us fear the inevitable robot rebellion, but for now it’s fun to watch it tear through terrain like tissue paper.
