Swinging An iPhone Around Your Head Creates A Stunning Bullet-Time Effect

This Snowball Machine Gun Shoots Snowballs So Freaking Fast

Video: Snowball fights are basically the only reason for snow so any advancement in snowball fighting technology is always going to be well received. Our pal Mark Rober, the ever inventive genius, has taken snowball fights to the next level with this awesome snowball machine gun invention. He basically outfitted an Echo Leaf Blower into the most dominating weapon you could have in a snowball fight. It’s like the snowball gun a Terminator would have.

Skier Somehow Survives A Terrifying 300 Metre Tumble Down A Mountain

Video: I don’t know how this is possible (though I am very thankful it is), but immediately after skiier Angel Collinson tumbled 300m down the side of an Alaskan mountain, she sat up and told everyone that she was going to walk back up the mountain to get her stuff. I mean, how badarse is that? After being put in the dangerous whirlwind free fall for what seemed like forever (the drop kept going and going and going), she just brushed it off like it was nothing. Incredible.

The Science Behind Making Snow

Both global warming and the popularity of downhill skiing are on the rise, a trend that probably seems a little counterintuitive. Hiding behind the scenes are snowmaking machines, which every year convert millions of litres of water into money-making snow.

One Day Droneboarding Could Be An Exciting Sport, But Not Today

Video: It’s entirely plausible that one day extreme athletes will be blasting across a snow-covered field on a snowboard, powered not by the pull of gravity, but by a flying drone pulling them along.

Image Cache: Australia is lucky. For those in the US, the beauty of winter can be difficult to appreciate when constantly shovelling walkways, scraping ice off cars and tromping through freezing slush.

America's Colossal Snowstorm Shattered Even More Records Than Expected

Blizzards. Floods. Ice storms. Thundersnow. Hurricane-level winds. Plagues of locusts. OK, maybe not that last one. But all the rest of these hit the US hard last weekend, breaking records just as predicted — and in some cases even more than predicted.

Watch This Snow Blower Tractor Monster Eat And Spit Out Snow

Video: The worst part about a blizzard is the days after when the pristine white gives way to a dirty brownish grey. Where streets that once looked impossibly untouched transform into trampled reminders of our dirty footprint on this here world. I wish you could get that picturesque day of a blizzard and then immediately erase the days after. With this tractor snow blower machine, you can come pretty damn close. Look at it swallow blocks of snow and then spit it out in a fierce stream. Awesome.
