Model Rocket Mounted Launch Cam Footage For The Win

In this video the camera is mounted on a model rocket facing downwards as it launchs. It looks like they launch multiple rockets at the same time from the smoke trails. Also if you look at 0:11 in the video it seems like either the video distorts or the fins on the tail of the rocket turn into jelly for a few seconds before reverting back to their static positions.

Real Custom Mech Built In Japan Demoed In This Video

In this video a guy in Japan shows off a mech he built for around $300,000. It looks like a mech but the legs don't actually lift off the ground and seem to just slide along like the feet have rollers under them. He has air cannons mounted on either side.

Insain Ski Gliding Video Shot Coming Down From The Top Of Mount Eiger

Ski Gliding VideoHere is a pretty insain video of a couple guys 'ski gliding' from the top of Mount Eiger in Switzerland. What this basically means is these guys have the skydiving parachutes on and skis. Next they push off the top of the mountain and ski/glide down the mountain. They really don't use the skis very much as there is a lot of rock that they are flying over. But what they do use the skis for is to slide and push off various snowy areas. They go down the one slope of the mountain and then turn right down a basically sheer drop and just glide from that point.

Watch the video of the insain ski gliding for yourself below or click over and view it on the host site.

Video Of The Game Runner Video Game Treadmill Control Device

Gamerunner VideoHere is a video of a treadmill which plugs into your computer and records the treadmill movement as forward movement in video games. This one is called Gamerunner and you run on the treadmill and then use a bike handle type device which is mounted on the front of the treadmill to move and fire. I have a similar product called a SimCycle which doesn't work very good for various reasons. The problems with the SimCycle were that it wasn't a real tension flywheel, your knees were always hitting the desk, and you would be winded but you couldn't stop (specifically in racing games) because if you did you'd lose the game. I'd say the Gamerunner is probably a better product then the SimCycle because you're standing up instead of sitting and you can hang on to the bike controller. Still the problem of getting winded though.

There is a review of the Gamerunner here and you can watch the video of the Gamerunner in action below or view it on the host site.

Robot Roach Climbs Straight Up A Vertical Surface With No Hands

RoboRoach VideoThe robots are flying fast and furious lately with another robot for today which looks like a roach and can climb vertical surfaces. They show the robot climbing up a treetrunk, climbing up a brick wall, climbing up a wood wall, and climbing up a plastic wall or some such. Apparently this is another DARPA funded project (military) and I can think of all kinds of things you could do with it. For example, it could be used for mounting turrets or antenna on cliffs, climbing cliffs, bugging trees with cameras and speakers, and any number of other things where you need to climb a vertical face. Have the mule robot from yesterday siddle up to the cliff and launch these climbers. Six legged robot roach ninjas for the win!

Robotic Pack Mule Developed For The Military In This Video

Robot Pack Mule VideoHere is a video of a robot pack mule that is being developed for the military to carry gear into terrain which is inaccessable by vehicle. They show it moving through various terrain including snow, deep mud, rocky shale, and just regular dirt. This thing looks like two guys carrying a load between them as the legs in the front and the back both have the joint pointed inwards. It really looks weird because it moves like a human but your eyes tell you it's a robot. They show it turning in a circle by side stepping and being able to catch itself if someone kicks it in the side. I'd like to see them walk this thing up a sand dune though. You know after they get this thing working pretty good as a pack animal that guard dogs and or mounting guns on this thing is next. Robot police horses? If we can't have flying cars this might be the next best thing. Imperial walkers here we come.

Autocopter The Unmanned Mini Helicopter Tests New Shotgun In This Video

Autocopter VideoSo if you've ever seen the TV series Dark Angle with it's police spy killer hover drone you'll recognize this thing. Apparently this is called the Autocopter and it is an unmanned mini helicopter except that now they have added a 12 gauge shot gun to it. This video of it flying around on manual control (and apparently with a tether) shows it testing out the new shot gun mount. First they have it stable on the ground and they fire a single round and then a burst. It does get a little bit of a kickback while on the ground but when they take it up into the air and do some more firing tests I don't notice any kickback. How long until these things are flying around in a city near you with face recognition software ala Dark Angle? You can find more textual information about the Autocopter here.

Video Of High Caliber Guns Being Fired At A Gun Shoot In Arizona

High Caliber Gun Shoot VideoIn this video which states it was filmed at a "Gun Shoot" in Arizona in 2003 a variety of people demonstrate firing their big caliber high powered automatic guns. There seems to be big caliber weapons here from as far back as WWI and WWII including what looks like a water cooled machine gun and even a couple German made machine guns from WWII. One guy shows off two what I think are Desert Eagles (those are big?) while others feature their M16s, .50 Ccalibers, Uzi's, and other big guns I can't come up with a name for. Also featured are one guy's jeep mounted .50 Caliber and someone elses weapon firing what look like exploding bullets.

Check out this people blasting away at targets with their big caliber weapons for a good time below or view it on the original site.

Skier Jumps Off A Sixty Foot Cliff And Nails It While Going Down A Mountain

Cliff Jump VideoIn this video cliff there are some guys on a mountain and they are looking across at another snow covered mountain. A skier comes down the mountain above that cliff on the right and then jumps over the top of it. He lands in the middle of the red circle there and just keeps on skiing down the mountain. He made a perfect landing after jumping off that cliff. The caption for the video says 8 feet but that looks more like 60 feet if you ask me which is a pretty long jump for anyone to make on skies.

Check this video out for yourself if you like skiing or just to waste time at work.

Guy With A Unicycle Does All Kinds Of Crazy Tricks And Crashs In These Clips

Unicycle VideoIn this video we have a guy on a unicycle that does all kinds of crazy tricks (and crazy crashs). He mountain unicycles down a mountain, bounces on poles, bounces on tables, bounces on the bedge of cliffs, swings the unicycle around by the seat with his feet, and all kinds of other crazy stuff. It also includes video of him eating dirt a few times while bouncing on stairs or crossing logs. I bet you can't do that with a regular bike let alone a unicycle like this guy. The very last clip is of him jumping onto a stair rail and following down backwards onto the stairs. OUCH.

Check out the video of the crazy guy with the unicycle.
