Most of the time you see a laptop being used with a second screen, it’s placed off to the side. But DIY Perks decided to build himself a computer that has a pair of stacked screens instead. The folding top screen is also at a better working height for your neck and shoulders, so it has ergonomic benefits too.
Artist and designer Love Hultén shows off another one of his amazing custom builds. This time, he took a modern Korg Minilogue analog synthesizer, and built a Commodore SX-64-inspired portable wooden enclosure to house its electronics, then outfitted with cool orange knobs, and a matching keyboard in retro shades of tan and brown.
Tuning experts Hennessey Performance took the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck, gave it a 6.2L Hellcat V8 engine and an amped up supercharger, making 1000 hp and 933 lb-ft. of torque. It has custom bumpers, 20″ wheels, an upgraded suspension with a 6″ lift, and much more. See it in person at the 2019 SEMA Show.
Beat Saber is one of the most fun and addictive VR games we’ve played, but it requires a head-mounted display and VR controllers to play. DoodleChaos decided to see if he could make a rudimentary version of the game in Minecraft, by dual wielding swords and whacking flower pots while rolling down a track in a mine cart.
A 1/4-mile time of 15.495 seconds isn’t exactly earth-shaking. But this is no ordinary car – it’s a small building. Watch as Kevin Nicks‘ converted 1999 VW Passat with an Audi RS4 drivetrain manages to beat a Vauxhall Astra H in a drag race. Apparently the shed has done the same in as little as 14.6 seconds, and tops out at 112.68 mph.
KarrMedia and VMP Performance worked to create and tune this tiny monster – an older model Mazda MX-5 Miata with a 707hp supercharged V8 Hellcat engine up front. They had to cut holes in the hood and firewall to make it fit, but connected to a 6-speed Tremec manual and a Ford 8.8 rear axle, it’s a bonkers little burnout machine.
This monster of a Chevy Silverado truck was blessed with a 6-wheel drivetrain, an 8-inch lift kit, a 450 bhp engine upgrade, massive 37-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, LED lighting and more by the mad minds of Hennessey Performance. It also required a custom-built bed to fit that third axle.
Tractors are typically slow-moving behemoths. Williams Formula 1 teamed up with heavy equipment maker JCB to prove that isn’t always the case. This Fastrac tractor packs a 7.2L diesel engine, making 1000hp and 1843 lb-ft. of torque, upgraded with a ZF 6-speed manual, and other racing enhancements. Its top speed: 103.6 mph.
Grind Hard Plumbing Co. took a Barbie Power Wheels Mustang and hopped it with a Honda dirt bike engine up so its power and speed match its muscle car looks. Sure, it’s basically a go-kart with a plastic body now, but it’s still awesome and we want to take it for a ride.
(PG-13: Language) EV maker Tesla is working on a pickup truck, but Simone Giertz doesn’t have the patience to wait for its release. Instead, she did what any enterprising maker with a massive YouTube following would do – she called in her friends to help carve up a Tesla Model 3 and make it into a ute, dubbed the “Truckla.”
A Bentley Continental GT is already quite the impressive vehicle, but it wasn’t enough for Kosik of AcademeG to leave well enough alone, and decided to upgrade his with tank treads. You can check out the full build log for this beast on their YouTube channel. Turn captions on.
The block-building game Minecraft is known for its incredibly rudimentary object textures. But game modder hodiltoN decided the game was due for an upgrade, and created a series of realistic textures for the game, which look especially nice when lit with using the SEUS PTGI shaders.
All that remains from the Disney Princess Power Wheels Jeep is its pink plastic shell, but The Grind Hard Plumbing Co.’s latest build is simply awesome. The tricked out one-seater now has a 50hp CRF 450 dirt bike engine, and an off-road suspension, making for tons of fun in the dirt.
“I’m not gonna ship you guys something you can’t hurt yourself with.” Sufficiently Advanced made a modded NERF gun that shoots electrified darts. His latest version features contact points wide enough to momentarily shock people. Check out the build at 0:58, and the tests at 5:23.
Automotive madman Jimmy Built managed to cram the drive unit from a Tesla Model S and the battery pack from a Chevy Volt into an old Honda Accord. The result is a crazy lightweight car that can do 0-to-60 in about 2.7 sec, and sounds like a remote-controlled toy doing it.
Captain Xavier shows off one of the coolest NERF builds we’ve ever seen – a Rival minigun that can fire up to 20 rounds per sec, and up to 2000 rounds from a backpack ammo supply. Even if it didn’t work, we’d be intimidated by its looks. Firing demo starts at 18 minutes.
Weapon maker Joerg Sprave is always up for a challenge. When the makers of the game War Robots asked him if he’d build a robot, he obliged them with the world’s deadliest vacuum cleaner – which carries and fires a Glock. Never yell at this robot for missing a spot!
I did a thing bought some tampons. But that’s not the only thing that the YouTuber shows off in his video, the highlight of which is a high-powered NERF weapon that he modded to fire the feminine hygiene products as its projectiles using compressed air. Don’t try this at home.
JulioNIB’s Grand Theft Auto V mod lets you play as the Master of Magnetism. As Magneto, you can manipulate vehicles, even airplanes and trains. You can also deflect bullets, grab weapons and fire them, and turn wind turbines into giant blades of destruction.

The Nintendo Switch is a pretty nifty gaming system all on its own, but there are a couple of ways in which it could be improved. LEGO builder vmln8r shows off a few accessories they built to enhance the system. The controller rail is a 3D printed part you can download here.
