    This is the world's largest Bowie knife, recently constructed by the town of Bowie, Texas to honor Colonel David James Bowie, who died during the Battle Of The Alamo, and for whom the town was named. No word if it's big enough for Crocodile Dundee to consider a real knife. ... / Continue →

    Because fire is one of the few things I still care about in this world, this is a video of The Slow Mo Guys capturing a 50-foot flamethrower in 4K definition and ultra slow motion. It is glorious. You can actually see the fire chasing the fuel mist trying to ignite it. The g... / Continue →

    This is a video from some sickos in Finland who attached a chainsaw to a heavy duty DJI S1000 octocopter. Then they use the thing to behead some snowmen and murder a tree. What did that tree ever do to you? Soon drones will be available with every kind of weapon imaginable. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Colin Furze demonstrating his homemade thermite launcher. Don't know what thermite is? Let me copy/paste something for you while I yell at my coworker to stop drumming on his desk: "[Thermite is] an especially nasty chemical composition made of metal power ... / Continue →

    This is the Ideal Conceal Pistol, a $395 pistol being produced this summer that folds up into what looks like a smartphone. It's not a phone though, so you're going to have to find one to call 911 after you accidentally shoot a friend. The Ideal Conceal is a double-barreled .... / Continue →

    This is a video of inventor Colin Furze demonstrating the firework rocket launcher he built. You just jam a giant firework rocket down the pipe, and a trigger connected to a gas tank ignites the rocket and sends it on its way. I love fireworks so much. If I could marry firew... / Continue →

    This is a video of the ice sword that Allen Pan made. Allen made the sword using Pykrete, a frozen composition of approximately 86% water and 14% saw dust or wood pulp (in this case toilet paper). Pykrete is much stronger than ice and is actually more similar to concrete. So... / Continue →

    This is a short video of an angry crab waving a knife at a guy. I don't care how delicious he might be, I would not mess with that crab. I like my fingers just the way they are: full length. "What about your pinky?" I've had to learn to love him the way he is. Hit the jump... / Continue →

    This is a video of the guy everybody wants to be around in the event of a zombie apocalypse Joerg Sprave demonstrating the fully automatic arrow-shooting Gatling gun he made using pressurized Coke bottles. I can drink a whole 2-liter of coke in under a minute. The secret is t... / Continue →

    These are the 40-caliber bullet casing and Swarovski Crystal earrings available from Enreverie. They cost about $28 a pair and come in a handful of different casing styles and every crystal color imaginable, and are all made from real fired bullet casings. I had a friend who t... / Continue →

    Because there's actually winter weather in some areas, this is a video of Mark Rober and the leaf blower he modified into a snowball machine gun. Man, Calvin & Hobbes would have loved this thing. I wish I had a friend like Hobbes. I wish I had any friends, really. All my fr... / Continue →

    This is the flame-powered lightsaber built by electrical engineer Allen Pan. It even makes authentic sound effects when turned on and off. The blade is a little thin to look like an actual lightsaber, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. Obviously, I'm going to... / Continue →

    Dave wanted to propose to his girlfriend in a special way. And what's more special than a custom Lord Of The Rings themed lightsaber? Nothing, that's what. Cross franchise sci-fi/fantasy weaponry is the IN THING right now. My wife could come tell me it's our anniversary tod... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Turn your volume down. Apparently the wind rushing past a boomerang doesn't sound like a top 40 hit. This is a video from boomerang maker Victor Poulin of a tri-wing boomerang that he attached a video camera to. The footage was actually pretty interesting to watch.... / Continue →

    This is a video of Colin Furze demonstrating the fully-functional rope launcher and hidden blade gauntlets he built to celebrate the release of Assassin's Creed Syndicate (which I am going to start playing tomorrow because I know you care). I thought the grappling hook was goi... / Continue →

    This is a video of rocket propelled grenades blowing through layer after layer of bulletproof glass. There is no stopping them. So if you were thinking about bringing bulletproof glass to an RPG fight, I would reconsider. I'm also reconsidering giving my elderly apartment ne... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, click HERE to see the whole thing in high-res or hit the jump to see it in the same resolution as the shot above and hurt your eyes. This is a super questionable infographic ranking 30 different fictional weapons based on badassness. I disa... / Continue →

    This is the M48 Tactical War Hammer made by United Cutlery (available HERE for $50 -- and buy me a ninja sword while you're at it). It has a hammer skull basher on one side and a skull splitting pick on the other side. What side would you rather get hit with? If I had to cho... / Continue →

    This is a video of the folks of Man at Arms forging the Predator's dual-bladed gauntlet in real life. The blades are slightly retractable, but not super retractable like the Predator's because the Predator had access to alien technology and we do not. Still, they did a good j... / Continue →

    The cross-bladed axe is the brainchild of Instructables user KH4 and can cut a log into four pieces with a single swing. For reference, that is twice as many pieces as a regular axe can. Of course it probably takes more power to drive a cross-bladed axe, but I'm practically m... / Continue →
