Video: It's only May, but there's a good chance we've already found our song of the winter. Eclectic Method is back with another pop culture mashup, but this time he's created an incredibly catchy drum and bass earworm by painstakingly assembling the sounds of video game weapons being fired and reloaded.
Video: There's nothing I want to do more in life than to shoot a Tesla coil gun. Seeing those bolts of electricity fly out of that death ray-looking weapon is basically all I've ever dreamed about since I've watched Ghostbusters, and this Tesla coil gun is the closest thing to a real-life Proton Pack that I've ever seen.
Product placement of real-world firearm brands in video games doesn't affect attitudes towards guns. And if you've got a soft spot for the AR-15, there's a far higher chance you can point to your politics instead of your K/D ratio as the main reason.
These are the major findings of a recent study from Doctors Joseph Hilgard, Christopher Engelhardt and Bruce Bartholow - who specialise in videogame psychology.
Video: There are endless documentaries that explain the clever technology that allowed World War I fighter planes to fire their machine guns through their propellers without hitting the blades. But The Slow Mo Guys use their high-speed cameras so you can finally see exactly what's happening.
Video: The Fifth Element is one of those movies you can't help but watch all the way through whenever it's on TV. There are just too many wonderful moments to miss, but clearly Adam Savage's favourite was the reveal of the Zorg ZF-1 blaster. Why else would he spend over 10 years building a replica of his own?
Have you ever tried to get something that you shouldn't through customs? Frankly, I don't know how people summon the nerve. Whether it's illegal drugs, exotic animal meat or counterfeit purses, people will try to smuggle just about anything. And everyone seems to have their own favourite hiding places. But if any of your favourites are on the list below, you might want to rethink your life choices.
For the upcoming Hacked on Classics show being held as part of the Brighton Digital Festival in the UK this month, hacker Seb Lee-Delisle modified the classic NES' Zapper accessory with LEDs, a green laser, the smoke-generating parts from an e-cigarette and a small blower to create the convincing effect of a functional laser pistol.
One of the best accounts to follow on Instagram belongs to the Transport Security Administration. It's a never-ending list filled with photographic evidence that many people don't understand basic rules of airline travel. However, over the weekend the TSA documented an atypical and horrifying discovery: A 3D-printed handgun with live rounds.
Video: The board game Operation is a great example of how negative feedback can also negatively affect your performance. But instead of playing in constant fear of that loud buzzing sound, when you touch the sides while playing this sadistic version of Operation, you get blasted with a paintball gun. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Ah, in a tale as old as ice and fire, here's a liquid nitrogen 'squirt gun' versus a flamethrower. The Backyard Scientist outfitted a liquid nitrogen canister with a release valve that basically turns liquid nitrogen into a freeze ray death weapon of sorts (as in, the pressure makes the liquid nitrogen shoot out pretty strong). He pitted it up against a flame thrower to see how long it would take the liquid nitrogen shooter to win and it's quite the battle.
