Gamer builds IRL Minecraft pig that hits top speed of 20mph

Gamer builds IRL Minecraft pig that hits top speed of 20mph

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

YouTuber Electo engineered a real rideable Minecraft pig that is able to reach speeds of 20 miles per hour. It's called Hamborghini.

Using his technological knowledge, Electo has not chosen to use this talent to build a toaster that can toast the bread to the perfect level or other worthy and societally valuable pursuits. This is the same guy that built a 3D printer from CD drives, constructed a real Minecraft Creeper that has the ability to explode and made a working Among Us Impostor that wears hats and stabs people. To cut a long story short, he's having a lot more fun with his engineering know-how from college than most people on the same program.

Check out this absolutely adorable moment from YouTuber ChattyGrandpa who made his first Nether portal in Minecraft for his audience to watch here!

Late last year, Electo brought Hamborghini into the world, using an infra-red sensor so the creation could "see" the carrot in front of him and chase it to boost the pig's speed. Indeed, at a power level of 60%, Electo is able to reach an admirable 16 miles per hour. When this is bumped to 100%, Hamborghini's top speed surges to about 20 miles per hour.

His first foray into the wilds was to the veritable McDonald's, where Electo was denied a drive-thru snack. Not to be deterred, the YouTuber then raced his assistant Joe in a car park, and his lack of knee-pads while riding at 20 miles per hour makes this a nail-biting watch. Hamborghini, brave and true. May you rest in pieces- I mean, peace.
