Maker Ivan Miranda lives in a beautiful place in Spain. But he hates when it rains there, and he doesn’t like carrying an umbrella. So he set about the task of engineering a motorized helmet that uses a powerful motor and a turbine to blow the rain away from his body. And yes, it works in real rain.
Giant wind turbines are a common sight in the countryside, and we’ve occasionally seen them being transported on long flatbeds. But getting their enormous fan blades up a mountain along curvy switchbacks poses a unique set of challenges. This video from China’s CGTN shows just how they do it.
If you’re an airplane mechanic, one of the last things you want to do is drop a screw into a turbine engine you’re working on. Due to their construction, it would be very difficult to get it back out if you did. But as this video from AgentJayZ shows, it would make quite a pleasant sound before it totally ruins your day.
