    This is a video from 1986 of Germans demonstrating the Leopard 2's fully stabilized main gun. They do so by filling a beer, setting it on top of the gun's muzzle, then speeding the tank around without spilling any beer. Most impressive. You know it's important to know where ... / Continue →

    The B-Unstoppable is an unfortunately named quadrocopter/tank hybrid currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The tankocopter can fly for about nine minutes, drive for 12 - 18 (or any combination of the two), includes a 1280 x 1020 video camera, and costs $130. Obviously, fo... / Continue →

    Seen here being modeled with a commando chick appropriately dressed for combat (provided life is a comic book), this is Howe and Howe's Ripsaw EV2 Extreme Luxury Tank. It costs "well into the 100s of thousands depending on desired luxury and performance packages" and looks li... / Continue →

    This is an emergency brake test of a German Leopard tank behind a group of 23 humans (possibly slaves/prisoners). I assume the people standing in the middle drew the shortest straws. I would have run into the woods. Also, what's the purpose of a tank with an emergency brakin... / Continue →

    This is the Rockboard Decender, a $120 skateboard deck with tank treads instead of wheels that can only be ridden down hills (unlike THIS badass mother). Don't have any hills around your house? GET THE F*** OUT OF THE MIDWEST. Trust me, you'll thank me for it later. Ooooooo... / Continue →

    Inb4 are you gonna finish that? Photographer Burrand Lucas went and built an armored camera carrier called the Beetle Cam so he could photograph lions up close and personal. Aaaaaand this is the result. Burrand sells the Beetle Cams, which are basically remote controlled tan... / Continue →

    Well, it's the week before Halloween -- and you all know what that means. "Undigested candy corn in my stool?" *horf* WHAT?! No. God you're sick. "Look who's talking!" WHERE?! "Nevermind." Haha, I knew what you meant I just refused to knowledge it. This is a video of t... / Continue →

    Take a gander at the picture -- any clue what you're looking at? Me neither, I thought it was the original Fallout beta or something. "I see an alligator eating a child." Okaaaaaaay, now I see a psychiatric evaluation. But apparently there's a tank in there somewhere. The... / Continue →

    This is a video of Vilnius (the capital of Lithuania) mayor Arturas Zuokas crushing an illegally parked Mercedes in a tank. Except that's not really a tank because tanks have treads (but not all things with treads are tanks!). That right there is what we call an urban assaul... / Continue →

    This is the remote-controlled Digger D-3 "flail tank". It's the latest and greatest (read: explosive-proof) of Digger mine-detonators, which have been around since WWII. Basically, it's steered around on the battlefield like a giant R/C car tank while it wails on the ground ... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what the blast from a tank looks like in slow-motion? Well rest easy, Admiral Inquisitive, because that's exactly what this is. Unless I embedded the wrong video, in which case it might be one of me with a grocery bag over my head ranting about trolls and how I wa... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader and photojournalist with balls at least 5x the international average (and 8x that of Geekologie Readers), David Adams was actually in Libya for the Battle of Sfett Hill (of trunk-tank fame), and took a bunch more footage of the fighting (and makeshift weapons ... / Continue →

    Submarine tanks: they just make sense. No, no they don't. But they do make claustrophobics shit their pants just thinking about them! It wasn't necessary to invent an entirely fake challenge for the basis of this concept, but Phil Pauley Interactive went and did it anyway.... / Continue →

    Inflatable tanks were used in both world wars so this isn't exactly new news but I'm posting it anyway with the hopes Russia sends me some free vodka for the good publicity. So, yeah -- Russia has ordered a boatload of blow-up army vehicles at a cost of almost $3,200 per piece... / Continue →

    The Tracked Skateboard is the 125-lb lovechild of a tank and skateboard that shared a special night together while a Segway secretly filmed from the closet (hence the handlebars). You know, or it could have been made by BPG-WERKS for military applications if you're unimaginati... / Continue →

    Seen here demonstrating how Power Wheels are made, this is the The Shadow Hawk Street Hawk: coming soon to my driveway elevator garage. Okay maybe not. But only because I could never part with the Tercel. The Street Hawk is the first vehicle with 46 inches of independent whe... / Continue →

    This is a series of sculptures created using real human remains. Specifically, bones. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, you can't suck the marrow out of them. God you're twisted. Francois Robert has created a series of powerful artworks made out of real human bones t... / Continue →

    This is a video of some sort of Russian-made chassis that turns your car into a treaded vehicle. I'm not sure how it connects or if you have to take the wheels off, but I do know I want one. Just not as bad as I want a kit that turns my car into a monster truck. 20's? Pleee... / Continue →

    We can only pray this is an elaborate Photoshop hoax or we're all as good as dead. Well, you are, I'm as bad as dead. And twice as bad as that nancy Leroy Brown. That jive-talking mother ain't got nothin' on me! Picture [pictureisunrelated] Thanks to Daniel, who actually i... / Continue →

    Ironsmith Kogoro Kurata went and built himself a little tank out of a Fiat and old tractor. Unfortunately, it tops out at 3km (~1.8MPH), making it the world's most boring drive. You could fall asleep at the wheel for an hour and not even make to the end of your driveway. No,... / Continue →
