Whoooooo look at the flick of the wrist:

Arnold-Schwarzenegger-Predator-MusicalMaking of videos > *.  Quality looking craftsmanship.  Whoa though no kidding when he says they are going to be heavy haha!

Their testing at the end is pretty funny.  The same guys also made Batman’s wolverine claws in a different episode you can check out.

I picture RoyalNonesuch doing cool stuff like that for a living sometime.

Jay Leno shoots the shit with Mike Mayberry, co-founder of the bike company and then takes it out for a ride:

magpul-roninInteresting interview if you’re into bikes or design.  I really always liked the look of it, but at $38,000 – $41,000 you can buy more than one (like 3 or 4) brand new, better performing bikes instead.  The novelty here is that you have 1 of 47 though.  Unsurprisingly they aren’t selling like hotcakes… it looks like maybe half of them are gone at the current moment.

You can read more about the Ronin over at The 47 website.

They worked with Advance Armament Company and I REALLY expected more:

Here are five more videos which also aren’t even worth watching:

Action-Figure-Therapy-MarineI’m not really sure why they would release six videos all on the same day, and barely even try to make them funny.

Is this the state of AAC marketing?  Just throw some money and someone and be like “meh just get the figures to read some lists in their voices and call it a day.”  Their marketing was so good back in the day people were tattooing that Affliction style logo on their body.

Thoughts?

Wow this was close:

Ok if this is actually real, then the camera man must have had multiple bullet whizz past either side of him.  Scary stuff.

AK-47-Kool-AidI think sometimes adults take a child’s confidence as a false reassurance that they can handle the gun in question.  Kids do NOT know how much an AK, or an UZI, or a MAC-11 etc.. kicks because they aren’t old and experienced.  Sure I imagine there are some operator kids that have seen some shit, but until that if you care about their life and your own you should probably refrain from handing them even a semi-auto and hitting them with the “go wild” type opportunity.  You’re going to probably have a bad time.  The fact the AK in the video was on AUTO blew my mind.

Thoughts?

All in a day’s work:

Sons-Of-Guns-Stephanie-Hayden-DerpThe start of the video was definitely an act…. Not really sure what he was trying to say, but it sounded like there was a “pig in the tree?”.  Regardless of the initial staging, all his body weight was definitely off the ground before that branch gloriously snapped sending him to the ground directly onto his elbow by the look of it.

Definitely not shopped.  I can verify it’s authenticity by the pixels and splinters.

My mind’s telling me no… MY BODY… MY BODY’s telling me yes:

The creator James Patrick sent this through to me… I read it over and you know I had to start up some R. Kelly to write this post to set the tone.

3d-Printed-Handgun-Condom

The details:

This is a gun made from printed plastic, some rubber, and a nail and the thing actually works! FP printed two barrels. The first is my design, completely plastic which lasted three rounds before a casing got stuck in the chamber. The second barrel was modified to accept a steel chamber insert. That second barrel lasted 15 rounds and then ruptured just forward of the chamber insert, with no injury to the operator (barrel was ejected to the left). But the important thing to take away from the test is that a printed barrel of just 22mm diameter can take the pressure of a .22LR cartridge as long as the barrel is held in compression. No more giant barrels to compensate for the low adhesion between printed layers! That’s a serious step forward in printed firearm technology.

All 3D printed except for a roofing nail for the firing pin, and some used condoms for springs.  Double barrel FTW!!!

Damn that’s too bad it only shoots the rarest ammo on earth atm 😛

3d-printed-handgun-songbirdJames calls this design “The Songbird”… tons more pics over on his website, and his contact info if you want to badger him with questions.  He did this in conjunction with FOSSCAD, a cool open source CAD community you should check out if you’re not familiar.

I like where this 3d printing of guns thing is headed.  I bet 5 years from now we’re going to look back and be like wow look how far this has all come.

Thoughts?  Would prophylacticly operate with?
