    Note: Strong language. Turn up the volume and tell your boss it's a nature documentary, which it is. This is a video of two oil workers in North Dakota filming a tornado as it comes barreling towards their trailer park like a bee to honey. They're not really sure what to do ... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Air Umbrella from designer Je Sung Park. The idea is that it will blow a canopy of air above the holder that repels rain. Except that will never happen. Now I'm not saying somebody needs to brush up on their physics, but that little air-shield is gonna... / Continue →

    If there was ever a time to go over a waterfall in a barrel, this is it. This is a video of a waterfall in southern Australia being battered by 75MPH winds and turning it into a water-rise. Get it? Because rise is the opposite of fall! Or is that spring? "Cut it out, GW." ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because Dyson isn't paying me anything. What did the balloon say to the Dyson fan? Blow me. Get it? Me neither. This is a balloon obstacle course made entirely out of Dyson's new bladeless fans. Dyson engineers were asked to show how induceme... / Continue →

    The Double Circulator is the latest in flatulence-dissipating technology. Just kidding, it's two fans stuck mid-coitus (been there, done that, managed to cover myself with a sheet before the paramedics arrived). The double-circulator is more than an fan. The device doesn´t j... / Continue →

    Two extreme sporters used particularly gusty winds today to fulfill their live's dreams: to jump Worthing Pier in West Sussex, England, on kite-boards. It's time to dream bigger, brahs! Jake Scrace, 25, and Lewis Crathern, 24, had been planning Monday morning's jump for three... / Continue →

    In a no-holds barred, knock out, drag out cage track fight, we've got the much anticipated Train vs. Tornado matchup! In the red corner, weighing in at a couple trees, a really confused cow and a bunch of rain, THE TOOOOOORNADO! And in the blue corner, weighing in at more ton... / Continue →

    This is a video of some stormchasers in Goshen county, Wyoming driving into a tornado (the good stuff starts around 2:20). I've got to admit, it's a pretty ballsy move -- but I've done it on foot. And yes, I was transported to Oz. Don't believe me? Then where'd I get these... / Continue →

    This is a video of some joker doing pull ups hanging from a crane that is way up high in the sky. Like a bird, except metal and painted red. Okay, like Bubo, the owl in Clash of the Titans, except he was silver and gold and had beady little eyes. Whatever, I am the Analogy K... / Continue →

    The alien apocalypse is upon us! Those other-worldly asslovers have already started sabotaging our power systems, starting with most crippling -- yes, the wind turbines. The facts: The turbine suffered a catastrophic failure at night around the same time many locals reported... / Continue →

    Remember the Zelda theme played by the guy with the hats? Well this isn't him, it's some other Zelda fan (who, it goes without saying, isn't as big a fan, or asshole, as yours truly) playing the theme to Wind Waker on a guitar, accordion, some glasses, a baking pan, a little d... / Continue →

    Fall is here and you know what that means: kite season. I don't actually know if that's true or not, but I'm saying it is. And this is a kite that looks like a cursor. Most importantly, do you see that chick? I'd click it. Cursor Kite for the geekiest [slipperybrick] Than... / Continue →

    A rotating skyscraper is slated to be built in, wait for it -- Dubai! The structure, designed by Italian architect David Fisher, has floors that can each rotate independently of one another. Allegedly the building will be powered entirely by wind and solar energy via outer sol... / Continue →

    Erbert and Gerbert, the delicious sandwich making company, decided to celebrate their 20th birthday in the most traditional way possible -- by building the world's largest air vortex cannon to blow out birthday candles from 180 feet. They even use a smoke machine in conjunctio... / Continue →

    I'm from the school where you'd think more wind for a wind turbine would just mean more energy. Well, as this video proves, that is not always the case. Storm winds for this turbine spelled awesome disaster (although they spelled it awsum disastur, storm winds can't really sp... / Continue →

    Don't worry, I punched myself in the groin for the post title. Scott Snibble's exihbit Blow Up is a neat little POA (piece of art). Basically a person sits at the table and blows into the small fans. Then the large fans across the room replicate the user's breathing patterns... / Continue →

    Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde has created a piece of art that would give the guy responsible for this thing a raging boner. The piece is entitled Flow 5.0. Flow 5.0 is an interactive landscape made out of hundreds of fans which reacts to your sound and motion. By walking and... / Continue →
