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…]

As you’ve probably noticed, Pokémon Go mania is in a category all its own. If you live in a small town you probably haven’t witnessed this phenomenon at its highest levels, but that’s about to change.

Check out the video below to find out what happens when a Vaporeon shows up in a big city at around 11pm. [click to continue…]

In a brilliant bit of viral marketing, Kolcraft created an adult-sized version of it’s Contours Bliss stroller. Kolcraft president Tom Koltun notes:

“We created the test ride so adults could experience first-hand how each Contours Stroller is carefully designed with a baby’s joy and comfort in mind and make sure it’s the perfect choice for their family”.

The adult-sized stroller isn’t available for sale, but Kolcraft may want to rethink their position because (naturally) adults have been taking to social media to declare that they want one of their own so their spouse/kids can push them around.

I’ll admit, being able to take a nap in one of these while out clothes shopping would be a dream come true. Check out the video below…

Sad about saying goodbye to the Mythbusters? Cheer up! Just because the show is over doesn’t mean that we won’t continue to see Adam Savage make awesome stuff.

In this video, Savage shows us how he made his own prop-version of Hellboy’s sword from the comics in one day. I happen to prefer Hellboy’s Good Samaritan (Savage also has a screen-used version of that), but the sword is pretty darn cool too.

See it come together in the video below.

Chalk artist Chris Carlson put his talents to work creating a Street Fighter backdrop starring Ryu. The creation also features a unique twist on perspective, allowing Chris to actually step into the ring.

However, when the art is brought to life, Chris is quickly destroyed by a Hadouken from his own creation.

See it come together in the video below.

Nick Luciano has a pretty awesome Dad. He’s the kind of Dad that’s willing to look ridiculous on camera reenacting animations from popular games for laughs. In their latest video, he’s recreating all of the Final Fantasy VII summons using a Swiffer as a prop.

That’s right. His Buster Sword also busts dirt and grime.

Watch the video below.

We’ve seen master swordsman Isao Machii battle robots and fried shrimp, but now he’s taking on his fiercest enemy yet—a 100 mph (161 km/h) fastball.

Needless to say, the enemies of the samurai have changed dramatically over the years.
