Check out this DIY Wrist-mounted crossbow

by Mark R

I always like seeing DIY projects like this, especially if they are weapons. This wrist-mounted crossbow looks like it could do more than a little damage. Designed by Patrick Priebe, it would have been already been classified as one of our coolest gadgets if he would have just made a wrist-mounted crossbow. Instead, the creator took it a step further and gave it a laser sight. You can watch the …

First man-made electric helicopter constructed by Frenchmen

by Mark R

A while ago, I remember covering an inspirational story about a Chinese man who builds his own helicopter. I am just as inspired by Pascal Chretien, a French man who has created the first fully electric helicopter. Mr. Chretien does not work for any big company, he is an electronics and aerospace engineer who practically built this craft single-handed. Considering that the big helicopter company Sikorsky has been trying to …

Grappling hook guns. From Batman to Rorschach from Watchmen, everybody wants them, but nobody really makes them. Unless there is some sort of spy company that actually makes them.

You can see a video of it after the jump, and …

Portal 2’s robot ball Wheatley comes to life as a complex puppet

by Mark R

I have played the Portal video game before, but I haven’t tried out Portal 2 as yet. I have heard that it has some interesting robots that look just darling. One of them is Wheatley, a robot ball that is quite animated, and it has now come to life by username TRP-Chan. I have a video of it after the jump if you want to see it in action, and …

Dave Forbes’ LED-TV Lab coat set for Burning Man

by Mark R

I’ve seen attempts at mixing displays with clothing before, and they usually end up being a stiff screen on loose clothing. Yeah, it isn’t really a good fit, but Dave Forbes has created a 160 x 120 LED video coat that somehow plays video all over. You can watch a video of it after the jump, and you can see how it works. You can see that it is pretty …
