Holy marketing cross-overs, Batman!
This commercial from Chevy depicts LEGO Batman’s Batmobile as a vehicle under their lineup, a parody of their recent string of (annoying) focus group commercials.
If I had $48 million lying around, and this was real, I’d buy one.
I wonder how effective these blades could be in an actual CQB scenario.
Take a look at the video above, where YouTuber AstonishingStudios creates a replica of the NERF Maverick REV-6 Blaster, entirely of LEGO pieces. While that’s impressive enough, the resulting model not only actually fires, but fires real NERF foam darts.

It’s inventive, and it has ‘gun’ in its name, so I’m obligated to write about it. What it is, is the PFM-A5 paper airplane gun, a motorized gun which is capable of manufacturing and firing paper airplanes. It loads from a reward paper tray, and sports a fire rate of up to 120 planes/min.

YouTube Channel ‘Smarter Every Day‘ made up a video testing whether a .22 bullet was capable of shattering a Prince Rupert’s Drop, and recorded it a 150,000 fps using a high-speed camera.
Spoiler: the drop breaks, but it’s more to do with the resulting vibration caused by the bullet hitting the drop rather than the actual impact from the bullet.
Interesting, ain’t it?
YouTube channel Looper goes over the various scenes from the recently-released Rogue One that appeared in the trailer, but were missing from the theatrical release due to the reported reshoot.
This is how you make an Alien film, or at least a really good trailer for an Alien film.
Alien: Covenant drops May 19th, 2017.
Another trailer with some new footage, including some more of that trademark, Wick-brand gunplay.
This is gonna be a great flick.
In this action-packed sequel to the iconic film Blade Runner, the Driver finds himself transported far into the future, where he seeks the help of infamous galactic smuggler Han Solo to defeat the ever encroaching threat of the sentient smog and dust clouds that are poised to soon overtake the world.
Adam Savage visits Peter Jackson’s personal prop room and takes a look at a CIA makeup kit created by legendary cinema makeup artist John Chambers.
The Planet of the Apes franchise is one of my favorites, and the first two reboot films have been pretty decent so far, so hopefully this one follows suit.
This is a compilation video of everyone’s favorite hard-partying action figure, Jungle Recon, and his question and answer segment, ‘Ask Jungle Recon’.

The Hacksmith continues their quest to develop functional Batman gadgets with their latest creation, the Batman Grappling Hook Gun. It is capable of shooting up to 150 feet, and uses 3mm Kevlar rope which is rated to 2000lbs. They’re also working on a 8HP electric superwinch, which will be designed to allow users to scale buildings faster than any commercially available wench.
It may have very little to do with the original Prey, but this re-imagining/reboot/blatant-attempt-to-cash-in-on-an-established-property-via-name-recognition actually looks like a pretty good game.
In fact, it very much reminds me of System Shock. Looking forward to it coming out.
Kojima is a weird dude.
Also, del Toro cameo confirms it: this is totally the Pan’s Labyrinth sequel no one asked for.
It’s rare to see this much awesome packed into 1:51.
The DroneShield DroneGun sends a targeted signal up to 2km away to disable drones / UAVs. Not available commercially… yet, but in all honesty it probably won’t ever be.
It’s Mythbusters 2.0 coming soon to a Netflix-enabled device near you.
Ok, to be fair it’s not “functional” in that it shoots an actual laser projectile, but the barrels (if you can call them that) spin, the muzzle flashes with light, and it makes game-authentic sounds.
If you have the aptitude necessary to make one for yourself, the creator put the plans online here:
The Slo Mo Guys, in association with (and sponsorship from) EA, produced a video where they recorded slow motion footage of a machine gun and propeller setup. They first recorded footage where the synchronization gear was active, a mechanism which timed a plane-mounted machine gun to fire in-between the arc of a propeller’s blades, making plane-mounted machine guns viable during the Great War. The second bit of footage has the synchronization gear turned off, and it resulted in 4 hits to the propeller blades.
Seems a bit ornate it for a trench club, on the other hand it’s really cool.
