Infographic: What's the fastest ship in sci-fi history?

It took a little bit for us to reach Pluto but what if we had the power of our imaginations in our real life spaceships? Fat Wallet came up with this neat infographic showing which ships from popular sci-fi movies, TV shows and video games (plus real life NASA ships) to show which ship moves fastest. It’s pretty cool! » 7/16/15 10:13am 7/16/15 10:13am

Watch this insanely fast drone fly at impossible speeds into the clouds

Holy crap. Once this drone decides to go, it just guns it like a warp speed rocket ship into the air. It’s so fast that I can’t believe it’s real. But Quadmovr has been showing iterations of its super fast drone for months now and everything else in the video seems to be moving at a normal speed so my God, this is… » 4/29/15 2:23pm 4/29/15 2:23pm

Video: Insane guy breaks the world mountain bike speed record

Blink and you'll miss him. That's because mountain bike rider Eric Barone is going faster than anyone has ever gone on a mountain bike on snow. He reached 138.752 MPH on a bike with the help of a terrifyingly steep, snowy hill and the wonder of aerodynamic gear. He goes FAST. One wrong move or one misplaced snowball… » 4/06/15 5:54pm 4/06/15 5:54pm

Skateboarder zips down mountains and flies by cars at insane speeds

He's going down the mountain road so fast that it looks like he's about to hit warp drive or something. I mean, damn. It seems like one little pebble on the road or one little shift in the wrong direction and he'd be catapulted off the side of the road. But he manages to hang on at ridiculous speeds. » 9/26/14 11:06pm 9/26/14 11:06pm

Watch how scary fast a motorcycle goes during a high speed race

The world starts to blur. People and trees and houses and stores are just streaks of colors as you zoom by. The roads become vertical as you make your turns. You're going so fast that, if you hit anything on the road, even a stick, you're probably going to fly hundreds of feet in the air and smack yourself to pulp.… » 3/19/14 8:52pm 3/19/14 8:52pm

This video demonstrates that some low speed limits are dumb

Fact: the faster your drive, the shorter your reaction time is, the less probability to avoid an accident. Fact: the faster you drive, the more kinetic energy, the less probability of surviving an impact. Fact: some low speed limits are dumb—but not as dumb as people who drive recklessly around Manhattan. » 9/13/13 10:38am 9/13/13 10:38am
