Incredible photo of hawks tossing food to each other in midair

Photographer Phoo Chan captured this perfect sequence of a Northern Harrier tossing prey to one of its baby chick hawks in midair. It’s an amazing display of coordination, like a little game of pitch and catch between a dad and his kid. You can see the adult hawk drop the prey and then watch the offspring catch it, as… » 7/31/15 2:26pm Friday 2:26pm

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… » 7/28/15 7:00pm 7/28/15 7:00pm

The world's longest water slide basically never ends

The best way to transport your body a third of a mile is to hop on Action Park in New Jersey’s 1,975-foot long waterslide. It’s the world’s longest water slide and it basically goes on forever and ever and ever. I think you could read a book by the end of the slide. Or write the next great American novel. » 7/28/15 6:21pm 7/28/15 6:21pm

Watch a MiG-29 take off and immediately shoot up vertically into the sky

Wow, this is so cool. Here’s a MiG-29 fighter jet taking off from a runway and then immediately launching vertically into the sky. The takeoff looks completely normal and innocuous until the jet is a few feet off the ground and then it just zips up like it’s riding the world’s fastest invisible elevator.

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 2:22pm 7/24/15 2:22pm

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… » 7/23/15 7:38pm 7/23/15 7:38pm

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… » 7/17/15 11:42am 7/17/15 11:42am

Making a katana the old traditional Japanese way is so impressive

I think this is the most impressive video that Man At Arms has ever done, and that’s saying a lot since they’ve recreated all the coolest weapons from TV shows and movies in real life. But there’s something ridiculous impressive about making a katana (stylized like the one from Kill Bill) the traditional old school… » 7/13/15 6:29pm 7/13/15 6:29pm

Spectacular lightning strike hits while fireworks explode

Not to be outdone by fireworks on the 4th of July, Mother Nature threw down a rather impressive lightning strike to light up the sky and remind everyone who’s boss. Matthew Pennington took slow motion footage of the fireworks show in Brandon, Florida and you can see the electric spike of lightning spread all across… » 7/10/15 10:56am 7/10/15 10:56am

Video: MiG-29 flies impossibly close to an airplane's open rear door

This is just plain cool. Imagine opening the rear door of a paratrooper plane and seeing a MiG-29 right in front of you, dancing in the air mere feet away from the aircraft’s opening. This stunt was obviously planned for the photographs but it’s not unlike opening your house’s front door and seeing a giant grizzly… » 6/29/15 10:49pm 6/29/15 10:49pm

Seeing the crazy movement of guitar strings in real time is so damn cool

This is wild. When cameras try to capture guitar strings being played, they see wavelength-type movements from each string because of the camera’s rolling shutter effect. But it can only be seen on camera, the wild wiggly effect is totally blind to the naked eye. Not anymore! This Wobble Strings project recreates a… » 6/29/15 9:56pm 6/29/15 9:56pm

Watch an oxy-gasoline liquid fuel torch cut through metal

Yowza. That burns hot. Watch as a Petrogen Multi-Fuel cutting torch nicks right through a stack of metal and cuts it clean off. The cutting system can use liquid fuels of any kind, including “gasoline of any grade, “white” gas, camping fuel, and stabilizer additive fuels” and “diesel, kerosene, biodiesel”. Basically,… » 6/25/15 6:03pm 6/25/15 6:03pm

Video: Bad ass glowing wing suit flight over a city at night

Roberta Mancino—wingsuit flyer, base jumper, sky diver, and model—pulled off a sparkling stunt: she jumped out of a helicopter in an illuminated wing suit over Panama City at night. The backdrop of the city lights mixed with her glowing suit makes for some arresting visuals. Flying on a wing suit is already crazy… » 6/25/15 2:37pm 6/25/15 2:37pm

Watch a F-35 fighter jet take off from a ski jump

Here’s the first time an F-35B has taken off from a ski jump. The little boost not only looks cool, like a stunt ramp, but helps the fighter jet take off with a more upward flight path. These type of ski ramps are actually installed on aircraft carriers so it’s important for the, um, troubled (cursed?) aircraft to… » 6/23/15 7:53pm 6/23/15 7:53pm

Seeing B-2 stealth bombers land is like seeing alien UFOs come to Earth

I forget how impressively thin and futuristic looking a B-2 stealth bomber is. I mean, just watch these two stealth bombers land at Royal Air Force Fairford in England, it looks like a UFO has just touched down on Earth and is ready to take over our planet. Or like a sci-fi fighter jet has hopped through a movie… » 6/22/15 9:12am 6/22/15 9:12am
