Meet Colin Furze: The Maddest, Baddest Inventor On The Interwebs

Meet Colin Furze: The Maddest, Baddest Inventor On The Interwebs

The chances are, you’ve not heard of Colin Furze and that’s understandable.

It is, after all, the sort of name that one might associate with your local health and safety officer.

But Colin is no prawn sandwich-munching fun-sponge; he’s an utterly bonkers engineer, shed-dweller and inventor of things like the rocket-powered bicycle, the world’s fastest toilet and a mobility scooter that drifts like Ken Block’s Fiesta.

Take a look at some of his greatest moments below and be inspired to locate the key to the shed and get creating. After all, the world needs more record-breaking toilets.

1. He created the world’s fastest mobility scooter, which can tickle the 70mph mark. Here he is racing a plane on it…

2. Not content with his mobility scooter, he also knocked-up the world’s fastest pram

3. Oh yeah, he can even take a dump at 55mph… And flush it!

 4. But it’s not just weird speed machines he’s in the record books for. He also created the world’s biggest bonfire and started it with a rocket, naturally.

5. He’s a bit of a pyromaniac, as his turbo-powered BBQ proves

Sausages not cooked? Colin be like…

6. The madman has also improved the art of vacuuming the house with his Hoover shoes. Roll the very shouty video…

7. Nigella, eat your heart out. He’s also rendered the art of cake-scoffing a complete doddle

8. Oh, and thanks to Colin, riding your bike to work will never be the same again

The only downside of the rocket bike is that it can occasionally catch fire…

9. He has even turned himself into a boat. Although we wouldn’t recommend strapping an outboard motor to your back

10. Colin does takes safety issues seriously. Look, he even made a hydroformed safety suits to protect against firework attacks

11. But sometimes he forgets all that nonsense and creates a rickshaw with machine guns and flame-throwers bolted to it

12. Never call him childish, because he definitely didn’t build 16ft fire-breathing bum in order to fart at France…

13. Finally, he’s called Colin, which reminds us of this…
