    The Chinese man who calls himself the 'steel legend' (best known for his scrap metal Megatron tank and being a firm believer that welding-goggles are overrated), has actually created a whole army of scrap-metal Transformers. Don't ask me what characters they are, because i onl... / Continue →

    This new steel velcro can support up to 35 tons of pressure and looks ultra-badass. So badass I want a belt made out of it. Yeah, and a headband. Wait, is this stainless steel? Cause I can't have no rust juice dripping in my eyes! Developed by German engineers, this new ve... / Continue →

    The Do Hit Chair is ridiculous. It's a 0.04" thick steel cube that costs $6,020. The idea is that you take a sledgehammer or anything else to it and beat it to shit, until you've got something in the shape that you want. If you screw it up you're f'ed. You'll probably end u... / Continue →
