colinfurze-mindofinventor1

Colin Furze is a plumber by day and an inventor the rest of the time. His name has become synonymous with phrases like “wall of death” and “jet bike”, and he currently holds the Guinness World Record for the World’s Fastest Pram, Longest Motorbike and biggest Bonfire. Watch a profile on this wonderfully crazy inventor below.

    This guy is great. Notice on the jet bike the exhaust pipes are glowing red (right by his leg – while he’s riding). Hopefully he can avoid blowing himself up and keep building cool stuff.

  • The world needs more tinkerers like this dude, that remote controlled garbage bin is hilarious!

    So good!
