Multi-talented YouTuber “One Man Mob” put his musical skills to use recreating the Futurama theme with synth and an electric cello, guitar and bass – putting it all together with help from a Boss RC-300, Kaoss Pad and Kaossilator.

Even if you aren’t familiar with looping technology, the awesomeness of the video below speaks for itself – however, you may want to pop a Dramamine beforehand if you suffer from motion sickness. [click to continue…]

YouTuber “5 Mad Movie Makers” recently sent a Hot Wheels diecast car on a gravity assisted journey around suburbia. The result is a strangely thrilling and thoroughly awesome video that sees the car traverse eight different track sections connected by “teleporting” tunnels.

In total there are 11 cuts in the video, 7 between locations and 4 for slow motion footage. The jump section and the loop section were filmed twice, once in 30 fps and again in 120 fps, and the final video cuts from the normal speed footage to the slow motion footage for the duration of both the jump and the loop.

In total about 200 feet of track was used, nearly all of which is present in the 4th section. Filmed with a GoPro Hero4 Session mounted on a modified 2014 Pharadox car. Filmed in California and Colorado.

As you’ll see in the video below, the car performs tricks and travels through locations you wouldn’t expect, all to arrive at what appears to be a sandbox birthday party. [click to continue…]

If you have a budding artist who uses everything as a blank canvas, this Doodle Duvet may be able to absorb some of the inspiration normally reserved for your walls.

The blanket appears as a sheet of notebook paper and is actually designed for use with washable markers. It will be ready for reuse after each wash, which will no doubt pose a quandary if you end up wanting to hold on to a particular masterpiece.

The doodle duvet is available in single (140 x 200cm) and double (200 x 200cm) sizes and comes complete with a 10-pack of washable markers. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]

The mocking of terrible movies will be resuscitated with Netflix’s announcement that it will be the new home for the anxiously awaited reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The revival of the cult comedy series will reunite creator Joel Hodgson with original cast members Mary Jo Pehl, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy (Pearl Forrester, Brain Guy and Professor Bobo, respectively) and also introduce a few new faces.

Jonah Ray will play new host Jonah Heston, while Hampton Yount and Baron Vaughn will act as the new voices of Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo. In addition, Felicia Day will appear as Kinga Forrester and Patton Oswalt will play Son of TV’s Frank.

If that wasn’t enough, Joel McHale and Dan Harmon of Community fame are on board as writers along with the previously announced The Daily Show vet Elliott Kalan.

There’s no word on when the reboot will launch, but after waiting this long for a return, MST3K fans can surely hold out a little longer. [click to continue…]

Super-Fan Builds drew inspiration from Back to the Future and Hot Tub Time Machine to create a DeLorean hot tub that will take everyone on a mental journey back to the 1980s.

Unfortunately, the creation was a one-off that was presented to one thrilled fanatic.

In order to bring some joy into the lives of patients at the Memorial Children’s Hospital in South Bend, Indiana, construction worker Jason Haney decided to create a construction site edition of “Where’s Waldo?”

Haney and his daughter fabricated an 8-foot-tall cutout of Waldo which he then hides at a building site next door. As soon as Haney learns that the kids have found Waldo, he moves the cutout to a different location to keep the game going. It’s absolutely brilliant. Check out additional pics below, and see if you can spot him yourself. [click to continue…]

If there’s anything nerdier than Star Wars, it’s John Williams’ legendary Star Wars theme played on the “Floppotron 2.0”.

As you’ll see in the video below, the “computer hardware orchestra” consists of 64 floppy drives, 8 hard disks and 2 scanners, and will surely result in flashbacks to 8-bit games of yore.

It certainly isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Star Wars theme played on old hardware, but it just might be the best rendition yet. [click to continue…]
