You can run but you can't hide: The creepy MIT cheetah robot can now jump

Q. How do you a train a robot cheetah to jump over the fence to your backyard? A. You hire a bunch of MIT brains to teach it an algorithm before it slaughters them in cold blood and escapes into the cold, dark streets of Boston. Now all this thing has to do is learn how to climb stairs and play fetch once it does away with the family dog, and we are all in trouble.

This jet-propelled go-kart is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

Want to see the maiden run of a go-kart with a massive, fire-breathing jet engine strapped to its ass? If you're like us, then the answer is an obvious yes.

A rocket-powered snowboard? If it's real, sign us up

To be honest, when you're already pointed downhill, going faster is never much of a problem, but that doesn't make this rocket-powered snowboard any less awesome. Needless to say, we are just burning up our fuse out here alone trying to figure out if this real or faked. What do you think?

Every Third Thursday: How to make breakfast with your snowboard

Forget granola bars and leave the continental breakfast in its tinfoil tray, because in the latest episode of Every Third Thursday Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew find a whole new way to grab a hot breakfast before hitting the hill.

The solution? Combine a snowboard and griddle into one powder-pounding, pancake-producing machine. Sure, it sounds simple enough, but creating a portable surface hot enough to fry an egg took the Signal braintrust a few tries before they were finally able to whip up both an ingenious solution and slopeside breakfast sandwiches for the whole crew. So grab the maple syrup, pour a hot cup of coffee, and kick back as Signal rider Brandon Schroeder gets this crazy hybrid snowboard cookin’ on the slopes of Mountain High.

How many different uses can you think of for this awesome griddle board? Let us know in the comments below!

Tony Hawk's Tesla Model S is great for filming skateboarding

The legendary skater discovered untapped features in his new electric car.
Tony Hawk just picked up a new toy, a Tesla Model S. The state of the art electric car can go 125 miles per hour and has zero emissions. There is another feature that Hawk found particularly appealing, an HD backup camera. Instead of using the camera to see how close someone was tailgating him, Hawk realized the camera could be used to film skateboarding.
