Usually superpowers with some sort of disadvantage. But we find it difficult to get on if there actually is any weakness in the mad inventor Colin Furzes latest works, a freeze ray. Do not miss: Colin Furze has also built a working Hoverbike In his latest YouTube video based Colin Furze on hoses, cylinders, valves, and a container of liquid nitrogen to a portable rig that allows him to freeze things like plants, water and ice cream, much like X-Men character Iceman. You can see Colin Furze demonstrate the technology, and how he put together below. And in the tradition of Colin Furze earlier inventions will see it quite dangerous if you do not know what you're doing. What we can only hope that Colin Furze actually.
Using liquid nitrogen inside a thermos with a tube sticking out of it, YouTube s TheBackyardScientist created a crude home-made freeze ray.To see what it was really capable of, and to answer a question that has been puzzling comic book fans for years, he then blasted it at a flamethrower to see which simulated superpower would win out.If you had to choose which X-Men power you d want in real life, it turns out Iceman s freezing abilities wouldn t be a bad choice because in this experiment the home-made freeze-ray eventually extinguished the flamethrower—but we d still take Wolverine s retractable claws.
It s a question that has plagued geek-kind for years: Which elemental force would emerge victorious in a heated and, well, cooled battle between flamethrower and liquid nitrogen freeze gun?That s the philosophical conundrum popular YouTuber The Backyard Scientist chooses to explore in his latest video after having previously grappled with the existential issues of what happens when you pour molten salt onto a watermelon, and why pingpong balls filled with propane are a bad if strangely cool idea.From the natural laboratory conditions of his Florida backyard, The Backyard Scientist carries out his experiment by tricking out a liquid nitrogen canister with a release valve that makes it shoot out like a fire extinguisher, and then pitting it head-to-head against a makeshift flamethrower.The liquid nitrogen freeze gun manages to nullify the flamethrower — in an epic battle shot in scintillating slow motion.If you re not entertained by that sight, the video also features such curiosities as whether or not liquid nitrogen can put out a burning laptop, why freezing and smashing flowers is apparently the internet gold standard for testing whether something is frozen, and various instances of our intrepid scientific hero chasing his significant other with liquid nitrogen.And let s be honest: From Niels Bohr to Richard Dawkins, what scientist worth his or her salt hasn t done such things?
Last month Psyonix announced the next Rocket League update, and now we have more information, including a release date.Set to drop on September 8, Rocket League Rumble will be the same gameplay that fans have grown to love, but with a ton more power-ups.Rocket League is the car-soccer phenomenon that took over the internet last year.More than a year after its release, a massive community still plays the game, and developer Psyonix continues to introduce new modes with free updates.Players will be able to use various power-ups, like a giant boxing glove, a tether, or a freeze ray, to cause all sorts of mayhem.But the major news is, after several delays, that Mac and Linux support will finally be coming to Rocket League.
The piece appears largely unchanged, but we have added some PC-specific thoughts (finally, Sunset in 60fps!)Release Date: October 28, 2014Keep moving, keep moving, keep moving.If I stop sliding down rails, bouncing off of car hoods, or rappelling over zip lines, everything falls apart—the music in my head stops playing; the electricity stops surging through my dodge-rolls; the fire stops spewing from my duct-taped battle-axe.When you find high-powered weapons, like a freeze ray or a bowling-ball launcher, you're able to shoot everything in sight with remarkable aim.Conveniently for you, Sunset City seems to be made up almost entirely of goofy weapons and rideable surfaces, and they connect you to a relatively simple—and certainly familiar—style of Crackdown-esque open-world video game, broken up into quests.
