Watch Gravity Foil This World Record Domino Tower Attempt

Video: Sometimes failure isn’t always a bad thing. This 5.79m tall domino tower was only 10 layers away from officially becoming the second tallest in the world — but then gravity claimed yet another victim. As heartbreaking it is to see all this hard work go to waste, it’s also pretty cool to watch 241 layers of dominoes, some 3242 in total, come spectacularly crashing to the ground.


A Flock Of 61 Wingsuiters In Flight Looks Like An Airborne Invasion

Video: Is this a look at the future of war, or an attempt to set a new world record?


The World's Longest Golf Club Is A Health Hazard

Video: The new world’s longest golf club is 6.87m end-to-end, shattering the previous record of 4.37m. Its inventor, Michael Furrh, also typically pulls muscles in his back, legs and both arms just from swinging it. Because lifting even a small weight with such a long pole is so freaking difficult that it was part of the training regimen in old Kung Fu movies.


In Just 0.887 Seconds Another Machine Has Already Shattered The Rubik's Cube World Record

Video: In early February, Jay Flatland and Paul Rose’s Rubik’s Cube-solving machine set a new world record with an astonishing time of just 0.9 seconds. But just two days before that happened, a new contender, Adam Beer’s Sub1, managed to solve a cube in just 0.887 seconds.


Watch The Biggest Ever Drone Swarm Take To The Sky In Style

Video: Take 100 drones. Strap lights to them and launch them into the air. Control them with a single piece of software and have an orchestra play Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in the background. Voila: you have a world record and a spectacular light show to boot.


Watch A Stone Skip A World Record 88 Times Across A Lake

One of the two best feelings a kid can have is that immediate king of the world, I’ve got this life thing all figured out of learning how to skip a stone across a body of water (the other is the freedom of learning of how to ride a bike, I think). But that smug satisfaction of throwing rocks that jump like 2-4 times would be crushed if you knew the world record for skipping stones was 88. 88!


Insane Guy Breaks The World Mountain Bike Speed Record

Video: Blink and you’ll miss him. That’s because mountain bike rider Eric Barone is going faster than anyone has ever gone on a mountain bike on snow. He reached 223.3km/h on a bike with the help of a terrifyingly steep, snowy hill and the wonder of aerodynamic gear. He goes FAST. One wrong move or one misplaced snowball and he’d go flying.


Denmark Just Set A Major World Record For Wind Energy 

There’s been plenty of criticism of wind power over the past few years, as adoption grows and potential side effects emerge. That hasn’t stopped energy progressive Denmark, which set a world record by generating a huge 39 per cent of its electricity via wind in 2014.


This Is How You Fold The Perfect Paper Aeroplane

I used to flip the end of the wings of paper aeroplanes upward and breathe on the head of the aeroplane to make it fly farther. According to John Collins — the maker of the paper aeroplane with the world record for the longest distance — I was doing it wrong. This video shows how to do it properly.


Watch A Guy Ride The World's Tallest Bicycle

Last year, we brought you the exploits of StoopidTall, a 4m tall bike that is completely terrifying to ride. So, naturally, we now have StoopidTaller, a bike that is yet another 1.7m taller. Experience the terror from the bike seat first hand in this dizzying video of StoopidTaller in action.
