He gives some valid reasons that make MS-DOS gaming the best option if you are looking to get into playing some retro games.

You might need to look around for a while for the optimal system though based on some of the criteria that the 8 bit guy goes over.

Snowball Machine Gun

at 7:01 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks


If you are having issues winning snowball fights you might need a Snowball Machine Gun to even the field. Mark Rober used some tech to give him an edge. It allows him to rapid fire pre-made snowballs. Next upgrade I would like to see is a machine that can take a box of snow, form the snowball and then fire it. Something like this paper airplane maker, but for snowballs.

at 8:30 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks

If you are interested in DIY electric vehicle projects have a look at the jehugarcia Youtube channel. When driving around town with an electric vehicle you shouldn’t have any issues since you can always charge when you get back home at night. But what about a road trip?
