The force is strong with this chap!

TeslaCoil

Apologies for the poor pic, because this clip is too cool!

When I was a kid, I wanted a stylophone. Now, Rolf Harris and his annoying invention can stuff off – THIS is the kit for me!

Fancy a novel way to play the Imperial March from Star Wars? Try dressing up in a Faraday suit, then letting the electric stream from a Tesla Coil pass through your suit whilst it screams out Darth Vadar’s ringtone. If I ever come into money, this is way up on my list of things to buy!

Check it out here.

Wingsuit Awesomeness!

Wingsuit

I wish I had the courage to do something like this, the footage is beautiful but I’m sure it doesn’t even scratch the surface of what it’s really like to just ski off a mountain and then fly to the bottom.

It strikes me as one of those things, that once you’ve done it normal life becomes mundane. How can you go back to your nine-to-five when you’ve flown like a bird around mountains??

I saw a guy on TedTalks (check them out they’re really very good), and he is paid to do this. He said that already, there are things being developed that improve on these suits and how you can land etc. Who knows -maybe we’ll all be doing it soon!
