Using cardboard, aluminium foil, and PVC, artist Hannes Langeder was able to build a pedal-powered replica of Porsche Ferdinand GT3 RS. Branded as the world’s lightest Porsche weighing at about 220 pounds as well as the slowest at a top speed of 10mph, the replica car is considered as a bicycle which can be legally driven on public roads.
Special features of the “car” include massive air inlets and a rear wing. The base of the vehicle is made of steel-frame.
It took Langeder 6 months and cost him £10,000 to create the mock Porsche which he built as a “socio-environmental” statement. According to makezine.com, the unique handmade creation aims to mock the culture of consumerism.
“It is treated like a bicycle by the law and I wanted to show that a car needed no fuel,” the 45-year-old artist told The Daily Mail UK.
Currently, Langeder’s work of art is on display at the Museum of Art Linz in Austria. Check out how Langeder was able to build a Porsche replica from scratch.
The artist used this as the luxury car’s starting material.
Using a cardboard, Langeder built the frame of the mock Porsche.
He then used PVC pipes to make the vehicle’s frame.
The tedious painting job begins.
Of course, Langeder didn’t forget to add some hood and headlights.
Here’s his final product!

Video Shows How Easy It Is To Make The Perfect Steak
Make a perfect steak… every time!
One of the secrets for a perfect steak is to test the doneness of the meat. There are two basic ways to test it. You can either use a thermometer or just the tips of your fingers. Most experienced chefs preferred to use the finger test since the thermometer approach might cause a certain amount of juices in the steak to escape as you poke a hole into the meat.
Fortunately, I found this video that shows the easy steps of using the “finger test” method. Probably, you have been using the method of pressing on the meat lightly but with this technique, you can be more confident of checking out the doneness of your meat. Of course, you won’t be able to master it immediately but it will surely get easier with practice. I have tried it myself and I am pretty sure I will perfect it in time.

This 17-Yr-Old Girl’s DIY Science Project Can Be The Ultimate Lifesaver. GENIUS!
Best science project ever.
Kidney problems are common and the number of people suffering from kidney cancer and kidney disease is increasing. Those with kidney disease develop life-threatening kidney failure, requiring treatment with dialysis.
Unfortunately, not everyone are capable of accessing hospital facilities especially those people in developing countries. These inevitable facts inspired the 17-year-old Anya Pogharian when she thought of making the kidney dialysis more affordable and readily accessible to those who need it after being a volunteer at Montreal General Hospital's dialysis unit.
Her idea was soon realized when she personally designed and built an at-home dialysis machine for her senior science project. She spent 300 hours working on it, even more than the hours required of her....
This Guy Transformed His 396 Square Feet Garage into an Awesome Apartment. This is So Cool!
He wanted to upgrade his garage into a livable space and decided to convert it into an apartment.
To add more value to any of your property, transform it into a decent and very attractive place. However, such enticing scenario entails bigger investment. But if you are the type of person who usually wants to cut the cost and avoid spending so much money, you might want to consider to “Do It Yourself” some parts of the renovation. It might lessen the expenses, but it can be pretty much costly in terms of your time and effort.
Mikey McCartney, shared his photos and story on how he managed to transform his 396 square feet garage into a nice apartment. The place required a lot of work since it did not have yet the plumbing and electricity. Installation of the basic amenities like bathroom and kitchen also posed a big concern. It requires extensive renovations to have modern conveniences such as internet and cable TV. The perimeter walls were completely modified to add insulation, doors, air-conditioning and, of course, windows.
Check the incredible works of Mikey. Fortunately, he took photos of the “then and now” moments of the garage for you to see the amazing transformation!...
