Formula 1 One Wheel Skateboard

The Q has a love for Formula 1 racing. But we’re guessing from his past projects that he can’t afford to own a real F1 race car. He does however have a single F1 wheel and tire, so he got to work building a custom electric skateboard that rolls on it. It works much like […]

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (Trailer)

A while back, Stuff Made Here showed off an early version of his robot that could solve simple jigsaw puzzles. After refining the robot’s hardware and rewriting its puzzle-solving algorithm, he turned it loose on a 4000-piece puzzle with only white pieces.

Master of Puppets on Slap Bass

The Metallica song Master of Puppets already slaps pretty hard, but it sounds downright insane when performed on a bass guitar while slapping the strings. Musician Charles Berthoud absolutely crushes it with this performance that sounds kind of like a Red Hot Chili Peppers version of the song.

Hands-free Bicycle

This bike without handlebars is neither a bicycle nor a unicycle. It should officially be called a tricycle because it’s got two tiny skate wheels in front and a single large bike wheel in the back. Whatever you call it, BigWR’s custom ride sure is unique, and it balances surprisingly well.
