All-New LEGO Batmobile from Chevy

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

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.

Man At Arms: Reforged – Riddick Ulaks

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

AstonishingStudios – Working LEGO Replica NERF Maverick REV-6 Blaster

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

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.

Paper Airplane Gun PFM-A5

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

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.

Bullet vs Prince Rupert’s Drop at 150,000 fps

Friday, December 30th, 2016

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.

Alien: Covenant Trailer

Monday, December 26th, 2016

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.

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Another trailer with some new footage, including some more of that trademark, Wick-brand gunplay.

This is gonna be a great flick.

War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

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.

The Hacksmith – Batman Grappling Hook Gun

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.

8 Minutes Of Prey Gameplay

Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

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.

Death Stranding – Trailer 2

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Kojima is a weird dude.

Also, del Toro cameo confirms it: this is totally the Pan’s Labyrinth sequel no one asked for.

Armageddon Gear Beer Bivy

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

It’s rare to see this much awesome packed into 1:51.


DroneShield DroneGun

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

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.


White Rabbit Project

Monday, November 28th, 2016

It’s Mythbusters 2.0 coming soon to a Netflix-enabled device near you.

Fully Functioning Fallout 4 Automatic Laser Rifle

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

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:


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer 3

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Looks pretty.

Bullets vs Propeller In Slow Motion

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

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.

Neat stuff.

Kong Island – Trailer 2

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

Hope it’s better than that Godzilla remake that starred Walter White and Kickass.

Trench Club from Battlefield 1 – MAN AT ARMS feat. Danny Trejo

Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Seems a bit ornate it for a trench club, on the other hand it’s really cool.
