    This is the homemade CD launching gun made by Youtuber JZSlenker out of an angle grinder. It works beautifully. I'm going to build my own to launch CD's instead of clay pigeons for skeet shooting, then lay waste to my roommate's DVD collection. I will also break a bunch of h... / Continue →

    This is a video of charismatic Youtuber styropyro showing off his homemade 40W laser shotgun. He uses it to set a bunch of stuff on fire because that's what powerful burning lasers are for (plus blinding your enemies in battle). The gun is actually eight 5W lasers in parallel... / Continue →

    This is a video from very amateur madman TheBackyardScientist showing you how to make your own propane rifle. It's pretty simple. So simple you could easily do it in your garage after school with zero adult supervision. Not that I'm encouraging that, because I'm not. As muc... / Continue →

    Heck yeah, no helmet or seat belt! Helmets and seat belts are for sissies who have never dreamed the dream of living a life in bed eating out of a tube. This is a video of Colin Furze (previously: his 50MPH baby carriage, Wolverine claws, Pyro flamethrowers and Magneto boot... / Continue →

    This is the Make Project created by Christian Poulsen detailing how to build your own functional BB-8 droid with a Sphero robotic ball toy, a foam head, and a neodymium magnet. It works pretty well, although his head doesn't stay on top as smoothly as the real BB-8. Still, im... / Continue →

    This is the Batmobile bed and furniture set ($875) made and sold by Etsy shop ShortysCreations01. It's not the most amazing Batmobile bed I can imagine (I'm imagining something with an alarm and flamethrowers to keep my little sister out of my room), but it's better than the r... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos of a homemade R/C Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. It is most impressive, especially the LED light effects in the back -- that was a nice touch. Plus if you squint your eyes and shake your head a little while you watch the videos you can almost convin... / Continue →

    Remember those animal face with ears panties made by Etsy store Knickerocker? Well now they're back with these cupcake panties. They have frills and look like cupcakes and cost $45 a pair. Obviously, probably not the best choice for period panties. Just being honest. I lik... / Continue →

    This is a how-to video created by Youtuber Grant Thompson - "The King of Random" of how to melt aluminum soda cans, make them into metal biscuits, then recast them into something else (in this case, a sword). Pretty cool. You know what would be even cooler? Melting a soda ca... / Continue →
