Grant Thompson - "The King of Random"
Call it "Mad Science", or just a "Quest for Discovery". These are some of my experiments, and "Random Weekend Projects" Subscribe! New videos every week! WARNING: In many cases, these projects are dangerous and pose risks of personal, or property damage, injury, and in some cases, death. There are very possibly other risks of which I am not fully aware. There are some mind-blowing loopholes in this version of life, that for some reason, haven't been issued a patch. I make weekly videos dedicated to exploring life through all kinds of projects, experiments, and real-world life-hacking. Every project is a completely different adventure, and occasionally you'll see an experiment that probably shouldn't be duplicated at all.

The pod is deployed using hydraulic rams, and rests securely on drop-down legs. With the pod extended, the area left behind is transformed into a mobile office or other customisable environment. While we love the concept of the slide-out pod, we should note that this would never work in an urban environment, where vehicles are often parallel parked bumper-to-bumper.
