World’s Largest Nerf Gun

Childhood Nerf wars are a common sight, but three engineers have stepped things up a notch with this modified piece of kit which can fire ammunition at a staggering 40mph (64kph) over 130 yards (118 meters). Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer who worked on the Mars Rover project, joined forces with Ryan and David from Eclectical Engineering, and together created one giant Nerf gun that has no problems obliterating watermelons or shattering glass. To give the gun such force, the clever clogs added a 3000psi paintball tank which then channels into an air cylinder which regulates the air, sending bursts of pressure at 80psi. 60 second quiz: Do you have the brain of a millionaire?

$1billion ghost city where NOBODY will ever live!

A town in New Mexico is about to join the ranks of these ghost towns, as the builders of the futuristic city have no intention of letting anyone live there. Telecommunications and tech firm Pegasus Global Holdings is planning to build a full-scale American town in the New Mexico desert, a place which they hope to open to researchers developing technologies for modern living. Pegasus plans to spend $1billion creating the 15-square-mile town, called CITE, with construction to begin sometime next year and opening as early as 2018. CITE will include a town big enough for 35,000 people, with a business district downtown surrounded by terraced housing suburbs – but no one will ever live there. Instead, companies will have the opportunity to test such innovations as driverless vehicles and natural disaster-proof homes in a human-free, practically risk-free, environment. ‘The vision is an environment where new products, services and technologies can be demonstrated and tested without disrupting everyday life,’ Pegasus Managing Director Robert Brumley told CNN. Nataly Gattegno, a designer at Future Cities Lab in San Francisco, says the city would help speed up experiments to finalizing a product. ‘It sounds like rapid simulations and evaluations would be possible with CITE, which would allow us to cycle through tests much faster,’ Gattegno said. However, some researchers are more wary about what a person-less city can really say about any invention. ‘Technologies are not merely artifacts, they are social systems intermediated by materials and devices,’ says Professor Steve Rayner, co-director of the Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities. ‘The idea of “testing” complex socio-technical systems without the people is...

This Video Won’t Let You Down. Its Actually Awesome!

The band OK Go is known for creating some insanely creative music videos. They’ve mastered the “single take”, where the entire video is one continuous shot. And the band has used synchronized treadmills and enormous Rube Goldberg machines for their videos in the past. But this one might take the cake for their most creative music video yet. The video sees the band members riding around on self-balancing Uni-Cub unicycle from Honda, starting off inside before going into a massive courtyard. They’re followed by a “multi-copter camera”, essentially a camera set up on a drone, when the band meets up with a crowd of people holding colored umbrellas. There are no words to describe what happens next – you really just need to watch. According to Billboard, it took director Morihiro Harano over fifty attempts before getting the perfect five minutes and twenty seconds of video. It was filmed in an abandoned warehouse in Chiba, Japan, outside of Tokyo. Source:...
