DIY pellet gun enthusiast and YouTuber Nighthawkinlight is back at it again. This time, he's teaching you how to upgrade that £10 rapid-fire pellet gun with a backpack mounted air supply system. Basically, he's teaching you how to shoot a DIY airsoft gun, flamethrower style.
I’m not sure why you’d want to do it, but the Nokia fanboys over at NokNok decided to see if the Lumia 800 survived at hypersonic, Mach 5 wind speeds – that’s over 3,600mph. Surprisingly it did, and seemed to work all right afterwards too

We've showed you the Paranal Observatory's laser-guided telescopes before, but never in gorgeous HD motion, replete with clear stars and deftly swiveling machinery. This is definitely one you're going to want to watch fullscreen.
