Intellectual Jokes

Yes, it's finally Friday (for some of us), and there's no better way to kick off the weekend than with some jokes. Our favorite? Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar of course. This theory is basically a paradox used to explain the apparent contradiction between what quantum theory tells us is true at microscopic level and what we see with the naked eye, meaning that the cat would be inside the bar and outside at the same time.

Jet Powered Batmobile

Here's another look at Putsch Racing's street-legal, jet-powered Batmobile replica. Instead of solely using the engine for straight propulsion like a fighter jet, this vehicle creates thrust with a separate front turbine, the force of which spins a second turbine connected to the drivetrain. You shift gears with a modified automatic four-speed sequential gearbox - reverse included. It weighs just 2,800-pounds, thanks to a fiberglass and aluminum body. Putsch claims the performance is on par with the Dodge Viper GTS, but unlike the Viper, this Batmobile can run on kerosene, diesel or jet fuel.

DTV Shredder


Yes, the DTV Shredder project is still alive and going strong. It's basically a cross between an ATV, tank and skateboard. Instead of wheels, the vehicle uses two continuous tracks, and is powered by a 15hp 200cc Honda engine. Forward motion is activated by twisting the handlebar grip and steering is controlled by leaning left or right on the platform that sits above the tracks. By using continuous tracks, it's able to tackle the toughest of terrain: tarmac, sand, dirt, mud, or snow and even slopes of up to 40° and reach speeds of up to 30mph.

Knight XV Armored

Sure, the safest place to be during the zombie apocalypse would be on water, but if you want to get there (or a safe house) in style and comfort, the Knight XV would be your best bet. It's touted as the "world's most luxurious armored vehicle," and has bulletproof body panels to get you from point A to point B in one piece. Limited to just 100-units worldwide, this bio-fuel-powered vehicle is equipped with a powerful 6.8L V10 engine, night vision cameras and enough room for up to 6 people.

TrackingPoint Smart Rifle


You may have seen or heard about TrackingPoint's $20,000 XS1 Smart Rifle in the past, but recently new videos demonstrating just how accurate it is have surfaced, including one decimating an HTC M8 smartphone. What makes it a "smart rifle" is its Linux-powered scope that transmits image data to a display, similar to one you'd see sitting in a fighter jet cockpit, that shows the weapon's compass orientation, cant, as well as the incline. How does it work? Well, you first have to "mark" the target using a button near the trigger, thereby illuminating it with the tracking scope's built-in laser, and once that's complete, the scope analyzes the data before reorienting the display so the crosshairs show where the round will go.

Seabreacher Y Killer Whale Submarine

From afar, many would mistake the Seabreacher Y for a real orca, but it's actually a submersible watercraft. Not just an ordinary watercraft, it can plane along the surface like a boat, but also dive down to a maximum depth of 5-feet (1.5-meters), which can be followed by leaps into the air as high as 12-feet (3.6 meters). A dorsal fin-mounted video camera enables the pilot to see what's going on above the surface. It's powered by a supercharged ROTAX 1500cc 4-stroke engine that generates 206-horsepower, allowing it to hit a surface top speed of 50mph and 25mph when submerged.

NERF Vulcan Gun

Photo credit: BrittLiv / Instructables

Take a Nerf N-Strike Vulcan Blaster, add an Arduino Uno controller, along with a few servos to help the unit move from side to side and you have yourself this awesome autonomous weapon. It was designed and built by Instructables user "BrittLiv," and as you can see in the video above, the gun automatically fires at targets, but can also be manually triggered using a controller. Its firing speed has been increased by 50% for maximum damage, and if you're wearing shirts with a special logo, the gun won't fire at you.

Honda Mean Mower


We've featured the Honda Mean Mower before, but many haven't seen the Top Gear tests of this beast, and the clips above show just what this lawnmower can do around The Stig's track. It started out as a HF2620 Lawn Tractor, and was given a chromoly chassis, rugged ATV wheels, a custom suspension, and a 1000cc VTR Firestorm motorcycle engine rated at 109hp, paired with a 6-speed paddle-shifted transmission. It has a top speed of 130mph and can go from 0-60mph in less than 4-seconds. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
