I was watching a random video about kangaroos fighting in the streets, and there was a ute (Aussie car/truck thing) in the foreground. I remember hearing about them on a Judge John Hodgman episode, but I’d never seen one before. A little wikipedia trip later, and I land on this German masterpiece.
I remember this April Fool’s joke from BMW a while back. Turns out they actually made the thing (well, one of them anyway!) Click through to read the impressions from one of the Top Gear Australia folks driving this chopped Beemer on an autobahn. So good.
I didn’t know this, but AMG (a Mercedes sub-badge) engines aren’t made by assembly line. Each one is assembled by an individual person, and badged with their signature. This is both incredibly cool and the most German thing I’ve ever heard.
The attention to detail on this Metroid Samus costume is unreal! Calling it 3D printed sells it short a little, because there’s a ton of additional sculpting and sanding in there as well. Bonus points to the creator for even looking like Samus with the helmet off. Best cosplay I’ve ever seen.
