Jet Skiing Through A Canyon Looks A Lot Like Podracing In Star Wars

Video: This GoPro video shows Christian Yellott zipping through the incredible narrow canyons of Lake Powell but if I squint a little bit, I can convince myself that I’m watching kid Anakin podracing in Tatooine. Either way, it’s pretty awesome.


Drink Any Beer Like It's Octoberfest With This Stein-Style Can Holder

If Evil Were A Puzzle, It Would Look Like This X-Shaped Rubik's Cube

Although simple and straightforward in its design, the Rubik’s Cube has been providing a formidable challenge to puzzle fans for 40 years now. But if arranging all of those coloured squares has become child’s play for you, don’t worry, some twisted individual has created a Rubik’s Cube with an X-shape that looks like a complete nightmare when it’s all mixed up.


Watch This Cloud Of Rusty Balls Shape-Shift Into An Airborne Labyrinth

The last time we checked in with Plebian Design and Hypersonic, the creative teams had installed an interactive map chandelier in Washington DC that glowed in time with different data sets.

Magic Bookcase Makes Itself In Neat Stop-Motion Video

Video: I don’t know about you, but sometimes I daydream that I have the power to move stuff or make wonderful things with my mind alone — because I can’t be bothered to move from my sofa, really.

This Is The Coolest ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Video

Check out famous race and aerobatic pilot Bruce Bohannon taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge inside his plane.

A Wooden Hammock Looks Incredibly Classy (And Maybe A Little Pinchy)

A stained wood Adirondack chair can class up any deck, and it turns out a stained wood hammock can do the same for a backyard. This impressive creation, called the Para Hammock, still features an intricate web of cords (in this case, strong nylon parachute cord) — but here they’re used to support over 700 tiny tiles made of walnut wood. So the whole thing flexes and undulates like a rope or fabric hammock, but provides a slightly sturdier spot to stretch out.
