This Frankenstein contraption was constructed by YouTuber outaspaceman using nothing more than an Arduino board, a littleBits Protobit and some left over parts. With these simple parts outaspaceman has managed to create a contraption so evil that even sharks with lasers keep their distance. Now the only problem left is how to turn off the crazy contraption.

Is this Massive Explosion after a Saudi Airstrike on Sanaa due to a Tactical Nuke?

Saudi Arabia backed by America seem set on dictating the political future of its much smaller and poorer neighbour Yemen. While this may or may not be justified the Saudi’s have undoubtedly shown they are willing to go to almost any measure to produce an outcome they are satisfied with, including the apparent use of tactical nuclear weapons.

The latest video evidence of a massive explosion in Sanaa does seem to show an explosion mushroom cloud that burns hot with a long constant rumble like a small tactical nuclear weapon. Watch the video and judge for yourself, tactical nuke or not?

The W38 nuclear artillery shell is the most famous tactical nuclear weapon for use on the battlefield. Developed in 1963 it could be fired by a standard Howitzer canon but with far more explosive power than gunpowder munitions, 15 kilotons on average. The smaller shoulder fired Dave Crocket nuclear bazooka yielded an explosive equivalent to 100 tons of TNT, an explosion roughly equivalent to that seen in Sanaa.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the shocking video of what appears to be a tactical nuclear weapon being used on Yemen’s capital city. Prepare to be shocked by the reality of war in the nuclear age.

Out of the High Tech Man-Shed comes the Homemade Rail Gun and the Homemade Plasma Rifle.

Many a great idea has moved from concept to working prototype under the roof of a modern man shed, a fortress of solitude for many. Two very good examples of the creativity that takes place in the shed have recently been demonstrated to the world. Two variations on the always impressive electromagnetic rail gun.

Ziggy Zee and his band of electromagnetic enthusiasts are fist up with their rail gun powered by a series of 9 volt batteries. Don’t underestimate the power of the Duracell however, the heavy weight gun fires chunks of aluminium with 27,000 joules of power. Still not up with BAE’s rail gun that fires with 33 mega-joules of power but it is enough to wreak havoc on pumpkins and mobile phones. Certainly enough power to make you want to stand clear when firing.

Next up Alex Smyth and friends assembled something a little bit different, a rail gun that fires plasma bullets. Instead of using a slug of lifeless aluminium as the projectile the Alex rifle uses a coper sleeve with a capsule of Zeon gas inside. As the Zeon capsule passes through the rail gun it becomes excited and turns into a plasma gas able to piece steel plate. An altogether impressive piece of home-made kit.

Presented for your viewing pleasure are the spectacular test firings of two new home-made rail guns. Demonstration videos that highlight the power of a good man shed and some electricity. Sit back relax and prepare to be impressed by the magical power of magnets.
