There are few things cooler than slow motion. Well, maybe fast motion, like on Benny Hill.
Anyway, things moving in fast or slow mo always looks cool. Like, for instance, check out this video from the Slow Mo Guys. They filmed a hammer smashing a mirror at 120,000 frames per seconds, slowed it down, and lived in every moment. It’s really cool.
I wish I could be that cool. Unfortunately, I move like a normal person, how ever fast that is. Sigh. Life is bad.
There are few things that add more to a word than the placing the word “Rocket” in front of it. Well, maybe the word “Mania” or “Rama” behind it.
In this video, YouTubers The Backyard Scientists attempt to recreate a small scale version of a Mythbusters classic. They attached a blade to a track, light a rocket, and send through a toy car, a whole chicken, some fruit, and a steak. This is knife moves at 150 mph and could cut through anything.
While most people in their 20s want credit for acting even remotely like adults, one woman has gone above and beyond what’s asked of someone being a grown up.
After ordering a new refrigerator, Clare decided to risk life and water filter by turning her fridge into a wine dispenser. All it took was a bottle of wine and the cold water filter in her fridge. Simply tilt the bottle into the water dispenser and out comes wine. Life hacks made easy.
It takes a proud adult to risk ruining a brand-new fridge with a move like this, so we commend you, Clare. However, perhaps sensing the immense power at their finger tips, Clare and her boyfriend switched the filter back to water. They told Buzzfeed that their fridge and filter is fine, but what about the copycats? What of the poor filters that will be inevitably be ruined due to the sugary content of wine. Those tubes are going to be sticky for generations.
Roughly five-and-a-half years ago, The Slo Mo Guys had were skyrocketed to YouTube fame after they hit their own co-host Dan in the face with a soccer ball. It is a day that shall live in infamy
However, because Dan lost a bet a few weeks back, the other host, Gav, gets to relive the magic of hitting his friend in the face with a water-logged soccer ball. And relieve it he does. Again. And again. And again.
Ah, the Jetovator. Of all the frivolous inventions over the past century, you might be the best. These hydro-power jetpacks and bikes have made for some fantastic YouTube videos, from that news anchor who crashes immediately upon take off to now, this real-life speeder bike chase from Star Wars.
In celebration of the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the team over at the Devin Super Tramp recreated one of the most famous scenes from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the speed bike chase. And yet, they managed to bring it to the next level: They did it on water.
Using the Jetovator water bike, Devin Super Tramp and a team of adults and toddlers (playing the adorable Ewoks) recreated the whole speed bike chase on water. It’s actually pretty startling how close they come to topping the original and makes you wonder why they don’t make all those dang Star Wars movies on water. Why they could just call them Star Waters? Wait, that won’t do. Maybe Water Wars? I don’t know. We’re workshopping it.
Devin Super Tramp actually has a bunch of cool videos of real-life recreations of fantastical stuff, like “Pokémon GO meets PARKOUR in REAL LIFE!” Heh. They should just call that one “Parkour-man GO!” Right? We’re still workshopping that one too.
