    This are two video demos of a 5-foot, 19-pound X-wing fighter made out of PVC pipe and three coptor rotors. I want to train a squirrel to sit in it, then I'll fly him up to all the best acorns in all the trees. We will be best friends for life, until he's hit by a car. Sobbi... / Continue →

    This is the paper airplane folding and launching machine that a group of engineers built. I could probably watch it all day. Also: sleep and play video games. And if one of these f***ing lotto scratchers would finally hit the jackpot, maybe I could. But nooooooo, apparently... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. This is a composite shot created by Redditor and photographer kolnidur featuring eight hours of planes taking off on an LAX runway. How you can stand around for eight hours taking pictures of planes taking off at LAX and not get picked up... / Continue →

    Wingman is an upcoming dating app for meeting people at the airport and on your flight. It's kind of like Tinder or Grindr, except with more potential for sex in an airplane lavatory. You ever gotten a handjob under a blanket after the beverage cart passes? LEGIT. You just... / Continue →

    This is a video from R/C Helicopter stunt crew HeliGraphix of a ~125-pound woman (plus equipment) being lifted off the ground by two heavy-duty modified Gaui X7 "Megatron" R/C copters. I thought it was fake at first, but apparently it's real. So that's pretty cool. Now someb... / Continue →

    A drunk woman (above) was police-escorted off a flight bound for Salt Lake City, Utah, from Baltimore, Maryland, after threatening to kill the man sitting next to her for rebuking her advances and refusing to have sex with her. I know, it's hard to believe anybody wouldn't wan... / Continue →

    This is the Flying Carpet Coffee Table from Duffy London (of this swingset dining table fame). It costs £1,495 (~$2,460, spit-takes blood) and has a base that looks like the carpet's shadow to give it that hovering appearance. Just to be clear though, it doesn't actually hov... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of a life-size flying TARDIS taking off. It's powered by 12 individual rotors. What's that make it, a dodecacopter? Sadly, the TARDIS barely takes to the sky before returning to earth head-first in a blaze of glory broken Styrofoam. No word if the Doct... / Continue →

    This is a video of helicopter pilot Dan Clark showing just how fast he can pick up felled Christmas trees and throw them in the back of a truck in Oregon. He's pretty quick. I'm not sure how I'd feel about being the guy that has to hook up the next tree to Dan's cable. Also,... / Continue →
