exploding truck

This might seem like a scene out of a Fast and Furious movie, or some kind of weird internet prank.

However, this video of a semi-truck losing control on a highway in Indianapolis, then going airborne and then subsequently exploding into a huge ball of flames, is the real deal.

Some other man and a passenger was driving peacefully (and, luckily for us, filming their drive) when suddenly the huge truck came rushing across the highway and crash-landed in a way that made it look like it was part of a movie!

Fortunately, the driver of the truck and his 7-year old son escaped the runaway truck before it went airborne and exploded and each only had a few minor scratches. They can thank their lucky stars!

Check out the video below and witness this unbelievable crash:

Man prints his own Aston Martin…

Aston Martin DB4

Ivan Sentch is a software engineer and, by using a 3D printer, he has printed a 1961 Aston Martin DB4.

Sound crazy? It kind of is. Snetch uses different plastics to print the mold for the car, after which he will create a fiberglass exterior for his “vintage” car.

The best part is, the cost for the plastics he has used so far has been a meager $2000. At an auction or collector’s showroom, a DB4 can fetch over $1 million. The idea of 3D printing cars and creating replica’s has completely changed the way in which people can re-create or replicate famous cars.

Gallery: The printed Aston Martin -

Using an uncomplicated, consumer-level 3D printer, people all over the world can easily, and cheaply create these replicas in their own garages.

Although Snetch’s Aston Martin is not complete yet, he estimates that it will take round about another 5 years to completely finish the job – and by this he means that his Aston Martin will be ready to hit the road!

We’ll definitely keep an eye out for this one!
