(NSFW: Language) Michael Cavanaugh’s pulp film has action, intrigue, and romance, and it’s just three minutes long. It’s an entire B-Movie you can watch right now, complete with deadly sirens, and an evil guy with both an eyepatch and a monocle.

K&P: Georgina, Esther & Satan

Paper Airplane Machine Gun

This amazing device was built using 3D printing, a cordless screwdriver, and mechanical know-how. What does it do? It takes flat sheets of paper, folds paper airplanes, and fires them. If ever a project needed to be on Kickstarter, it’s this.
