Ding ding ding! And we have another Darwin Award nominee in this video. The guy takes a stick (or sledge hammer) and hits a can of WD40. It explodes in his face. The question what did he think was going to happen when he hit it? You know those warning labels on the outside? Yeah.
The guy in this video takes one for the team by having a water balloon thrown at his head. A video is then recorded at around 1000 frames per second of the water balloon hitting him and spraying everywhere.
Here's an almost consumer level product which is a 3D laser scanner. It costs around $2500 and you can put any smallish object on front of the scanner to be scanned in. It scans the object and scans a full color texture for the object. Apparently it can also control the turn table to scan the multiple angles of the object automatically. Pair this up with a 3D printer and you have your own almost consumer priced fabrication lab that fits on top of a desk.
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.
The remote controlled vehicles in this video look like racing boats but they can also drive around on land and fly. The video is pretty poor quality but it starts out with the boats on water and then has them fly up into the air. When they shoot the boat straight up it goes at least 50 feet into the air before coming back down and landing.
In this video there is a power transformer with a short circuit. You can see the electricity flashing in the video until at one point the transformer shot out superheated oil which causes a giant fireball on the video. Go Florida.
In this video a guy gets carried up on a updraft while kite surfing. He's in the air for about thirty eight seconds or some before coming back down. He moves in over land up to about two hundred feet or so before coming back down and crashing into the dirt.
Guy in this video sits in a car seat which is welded to a robotic arm. The arm swings him around and I assume it is controlled by a human operator verses a recorded or random sequence of movements. Even so a couple times he almost hits his head on the ground for a Darwin Award.
Guy launchs a remote control aircraft from the back of his car, controls the RC plane with some VR glasses and remote, takes some aerial photos from the RC plane, and imports them into Google Earth for a good time in this video. Everything he's using seems like just off the shelf hardware that he's put togather himself.
This is the second version of a animation where the creator draws a stick figure in Flash and then battles the stick figure as he attempts to take over the drawing area. The original animation took something on the order of six months to create.
