Video: An airplane fuselage gets transformed into a stunning interstellar light show

Wow. PlayMID’s Porta Estel·lar is a trully stunning visual light show inside an old airplane fuselage. It mimics the concept of interstellar travel, “from departure and takeoff to the sighting of comets, planets, galaxies and alien worlds, until finally returning safe to earth.” Watch it, it’s a total trip (in every… »11/20/15 3:50pm11/20/15 3:50pm


The world's first supersonic private jet just got a lot closer to reality

Meet the Aerion AS2. It’s the first supersonic private jet in the world and it just got a 20-unit order from Flexjet, a private air company. It’s going to change the way some people (rich people!) fly because it can hit speeds of Mach 1.5 thus shaving down the hours needed to travel across the world. For example,… »11/19/15 12:13pm11/19/15 12:13pm

Video: What movies thought the future would look like

It’s always fun to look back at movies set in the future and see what their vision of the future was. Even though it’s more a reflection of the time period the movie was made and their imagination is limited to what was around them, it’s cool to see what was right and what was totally off. Robert Jones made this… »11/11/15 1:28pm11/11/15 1:28pm

Here's what it's like to rent a MiG-29 to fly you above the clouds in the stratosphere

It’s good to be rich. Because when you’re rich you can easily justify the $18,000 necessary to rent—yes, rent—a MiG-29 fighter jet that will take you on the flight of your life to the edge of space. You fly above the clouds in the stratosphere at 70,000 feet in the air, you reach supersonic speeds, you hit 9Gs, and… »10/27/15 4:30pm10/27/15 4:30pm

8-bit video game version of Mad Max: Fury Road is just as unbelievably fun

Oh my god. Since Mad Max: Fury Road was essentially just a linear car chase scene that went in one direction and then turned around and went back in the other direction, can you imagine how perfect a side scrolling video game it would make? Add all the crazy vehicles and the weapons and Furiosa and it would be the… »10/15/15 9:47am10/15/15 9:47am

A car and drones spinning around in a circle is a fantastic light show

Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them. It’s light painting but with a car and drones as the paintbrush. »8/01/15 10:27am8/01/15 10:27am

Here's more awesome footage of the Lexus hoverboard

That Lexus hoverboard that we all got collectively giddy about until we realized we could probably never afford one (if they were ever going to actually build more than one) is going to be shown off in full on August 5th. Lexus is saying that it’ll be revealing everything about the project then, which cool, we’ll see… »7/29/15 10:41am7/29/15 10:41am

Watch planes cut straight through Paris by flying on top of a street

Watch as airplanes cut straight through Paris as they fly right on top of Champ-Elysses and hit all the landmarks of Paris, from La Defense to the Arc de Triomphe to the Louvre and everything in between. The footage gets a little jittery at times and almost looks fake, but it’s so cool to rip through an entire city… »7/25/15 9:17am7/25/15 9:17am

Watch a motorbike engine disintegrate one millimeter at a time

Watch as this motorbike engine gets sanded down millimeter by millimeter. This is so much cooler than seeing something poof and disappear away because we get to watch it slowly disintegrate into nothing. It’s like seeing decay of a hundred years over a few seconds. Each peeled back layer exposes something new in the… »7/24/15 2:35pm7/24/15 2:35pm

Watch these amazing F-18 night launches from an aircraft carrier

Here’s a really cool video of F-18s taking off from the USS Theodore Roosevelt at night. It’s so cool to see these flying beasts just kick off in an instant with flames burning at their tails. And it’s even more impressive to see this happen at night. With all that said, my favorite part of this video might be the… »7/19/15 9:09am7/19/15 9:09am

Watch a 10-engine drone transform from a helicopter into a plane

NASA’s Greased Lightning GL-10 is a beast of a drone (it has 10 engines!) that’s the closest thing we have to a Transformer in real life. It can flip itself into a helicopter and then fly like an airplane and then revert back to helicopter mode. It’s awesome seeing the wings tilt back and forth as it changes gears.
