Massive Snowmobile Jump

Ever wake up and feel like riding a snowmobile off a ski jump?

This guy did, a professional snowmobile rider named Daniel Bodin.

Looks like much of the video was filmed with a helmet camera.. Gopro? Perhaps.. anyway this video is short and sweet, but gets you pumped if you’re an adrenalin junkie.

The GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition is the sequel to GoPro Hero 3 and which was a market leader on its own.

Hero3+ black edition review

It appears too soon for an upgrade, given its name, which suggests that it is just a tweak rather than a new version.

That aside, it still has lots of improvements over its predecessor (Hero 3) that make it look like a new version.

The following is a complete review of the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition.

Base Jumping From 300 Meters At Menara Kuala Lumpur

We’re into anything that pumps adrenaline here at Drift Cam.

Check out this rad video from a Turbolenza Base jumping team event held in 2012 at Menara Kuala Lumpur.

Mad fun and what a great location.

Base jumping is one of the extreme sports you want to capture on video and with all the helmet cameras on the market, you’d be missing out not having a GoPro or a Drift or Contour camera to catch the experience.

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay safe and all that!

Lego Powered Hot Rod – How Does It Work?

If you’re wondering if the LEGO powered car you’ve seen videos of on Youtube and Facebook really does drive, then yes it does drive and the engine is made of Lego and runs on air.

Air? WTF? How does a plastic engine made of lego run on air and push a full-size car? you ask?

I’m no engineer but I know if you get enough small engine ‘air-pumps’ together and get the gearing right, they can create enough force to turn some wheels.

Quoting from their website.

This is “A car made of Lego, that drives, has an engine made from Lego which runs on air. (wheels and some load bearing elements are non-Lego)

It is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing guy Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida, a 20-year-old self-taught technology genius from Romania who Steve met on the internet.

How much did this project cost?

The whole was project crowd funded which Steve was able to manage with a single Tweet:

 

Super Awesome Micro Project Factoids

  • More than 500,000 LEGO pieces were used.
  • The car engine is made from standard Lego pieces and runs on air!
  • The engine has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.
  • Top speed is not very fast, around 20-30km (We were scared of a lego explosion so we drove it slowly)
  • It was built in Romania and shipped to a secret location in suburban Melbourne.
  • It’s a Hot Rod design, mainly because hot rods are cool.

To learn more about this vehicle and the Australian guys behind it, go to Awesome Micro Project.

What do you reckon about this project? Waste of time and money?

Or is it the coolest Lego toy to come out of Romania?
