Do you want to buy a house or a piece of Star Wars history? Would you like a Ferrari or the DL-44 Blaster that Harrison Ford used? A college education or a toy gun? The answer is obvious right? It’s Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster every time. The blaster pistol made famous by Han Solo is up for auction and it’s expected to fetch more than $US200,000. Let’s pool our money guys.
This brawny futuristic mini tank on two wheels is supposedly the world’s most powerful electric motorcycle. The battery-powered beast can re-charge its 12.8kWh juice pack in 30 minutes and has the power of a 1000cc motorcycle. Called the Voxan Wattman, the bike can hit 0-60mph in less than 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of over 100mph. Vroom freaking vroom.
It’s the colours that get you when you’re out in nature. If you live in a city, you’re mostly dealing with drabs of grey speckled with Instagrams of exposed red bricks. If you live in the suburbs, you’ll see manicured lawns, potted trees, stucco and tile roofs until you’re myopic. But if you’re outside, like really outside, you’ll see ballets of pink, golden orgies, blistering diamonds, the honesty of red and mounds of dirt that are baked with life. It’s a wonderful world out there and we don’t see it enough.
Who knew that one of the easiest superhero powers to get (at least on a neutered, pathetic human scale) is the Human Torch’s Flame On power? If you’re Russian and/or drink a lot of vodka, you can use a hot wire and a debauched sense of pain to create fire with your bare hands. Just pour fuel on the ground, hold a hot wire in one hand and place your free hand over the fuel to complete the circuit. Instaflame.
No music. No flashy moves. No missile launches. And yet this video is still incredible. It’s just flying sequence after flying sequence of Russian Air Force MiG-31s cruising through the sky. Filmed by GoPro cameras strapped to a MiG, this footage is probably the closest we’ll ever get to flying a fighter jet. Seeing the world from such a powerful beast of a machine somehow simplifies things.
Nothing. If nothing meant becoming lulled into hypnosis as two machines battle each other out in a human game that can be interpreted through specific algorithms. If nothing meant secretly betting on which computer is superior. If nothing meant enjoying the beats and pulses of anticipation as each screen throws out its pick. If nothing meant I could waste hours watching these two go virtual hand to hand with each other.
The iPad Air is Apple’s best iPad yet according to the reviews just posted. But what does that mean beyond the usual lighter, faster, everything-er that Apple typically slaps onto its latest products? The first reviews of the iPad Air have hit the internet, and we’ve rounded them up to give you a clearer picture of Apple’s latest full-sized tablet.
Dealing with sensitive numbers in a top secret Excel spreadsheet? Reading classified documents that you don’t want people to see? Or most likely, exploring the more salacious parts of the internet and don’t want to be thought of as a creep? Follow these instructions that show you how to create an awesome secret monitor only you can see.
You could make crazy DIY Halloween decorations to scare the creeps out of trick or treaters in your neighbourhood. You could dress up drones as flying ghosts or ghoulish goblins to strike fear into child-sized candy beggars. You could be the cranky old man who turns his light off and seeps scare by ignoring costume wearers.
