Video: Riding a bike without a helmet or other protective gear is already a risky idea. But climbing aboard a custom-built bike packed with 1000 rockets while you're protected by nothing but a fireproof slab of foam strapped to your back is risk on a whole other level -- even if you're a semi-pro mad scientist like Colin Furze.
Like most of Colin Furze's creations, the Stomp O Matic trash compactor almost ends up self-destructing in a ball of flames. But not before it successfully takes care of one of the grossest chores on anyone's to-do list: stomping down the garbage in your trashcan can so you can squeeze even more garbage into it.
Video: Because riding a 360-degree swing as tall as your house isn't daring enough, amateur mad scientist Colin Furze has upgraded his latest creation with a petrol-powered parasailing motor, giving it more power, more speed and a guaranteed way to make riders want to puke their brains out after a ride.
For some reason every superpower has to come with a downside. The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants. But why can't it just be win-win? It turns out it can -- you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.
Video: To help celebrate his three-millionth subscriber, YouTuber Colin Furze, the creator of the thermite cannon and questionably-safe hoverbike, has successfully topped all of his inventions to date by building his own miniature Death Star covered in 58 boxes of fireworks all wired together for one magnificent 20 second spectacle.
Video: If you've ever stumbled across a creation that looked too unsafe to ever be attempted -- be it a thermite cannon or a flying hoverbike -- you're probably looking at the handiwork of Colin Furze. This time he's built a flamethrowing electric guitar with a built-in smoke machine, turning whoever's playing into the ultimate rock star.
Video: Because a thermite-blasting cannon isn't crazy enough, Colin Furze used a pair of motors and propellers designed for parasailing to build himself a fully functional flying hoverbike. It's easily one of the mad scientist's most dangerous builds to date, but seeing how manoeuvrable it is almost makes us want to build one too.
Dangerous. Absurd. Utterly mental. These words perfectly describe YouTube mechanic Colin Furze and his latest piece of gadgetry -- a home-made rocket launcher designed for fireworks. Sure, accuracy and distance prove a bit of a problem, but otherwise, it does what it's meant to.
Video: The maniac inventor Colin Furze cooked up a truly spectacular thing this time around: he made a giant firework wheel. As in, fireworks are attached to a wheel (not unlike a windmill) which is attached to a truck which is then all lit at once which is then spun around in circles which then explodes beautifully, shooting fireworks in every direction. This spinning firework wheel is so awesome that it proves that there needs to be more advancements in firework technology.
Video: Mad genius Colin Furze did it. He made one of the coolest video game weapons -- that would be the hidden blade and rope launcher in Assassin's Creed -- a reality. It works just as advertised! You can shoot out the grappling hook and then retract the rope to lift yourself up and over walls and buildings (though because this is real life, you need to loop in a harness of sorts). And the hidden blade just pops out and in with the flick of the wrist and is ready for you to slice the hell out of things.
No one has as much fun making crazy inventions or real life versions of weapons from pop culture we dream about than Colin Furze. Here he is making the grappling hook rope launcher from the video game Assassin's Creed. It's part of his series in trying to make a real life version of the Hidden Blade. Seeing the rope fire off is pretty damn cool.
Waking up is hard. Anybody who can just get straight up in the morning cannot be trusted. For the rest of us, we make do with phones and alarm clocks and snoozing and coffee and showers and jobs that pay us to not be late. Perhaps we're going to easy on ourselves. Maybe we need a high voltage ejector bed that shoots our sleeping arse into the air and kicks us off the bed.
There's a scene in the 2005 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie where a lightsaber-like bread knife is not only able to slice a loaf, it toasts it at the same time. That was done with special effects, but mad Brit inventor Colin Furze has gone and built a similar contraption in real-life, and his creation works.
Video: Life demanded it so the mad genius that is Colin Furze delivered a jet-powered go kart that can go as fast as cars on a highway. The jet-powered go kart is so ridiculous it basically spits out fire while you drive it. I mean, the metal pipes turns orange because it burns so hot. What a beast.
