    This is a video of LEGO designer Daniele Benedettelli demonstrating the LEGO exosuit he built to control his tiny robot friend. When Daniele is wearing the suit, the robot will replicate any movements he makes with his arms. If I were him I would punch myself in the head. *c... / Continue →

    This is a video of daredevil Gregg Godfrey setting a new world record for distance jumped in a semi truck with a solid 166-foot leap. He beat the old record by over 60 feet. That is impressive. I like when records get destroyed instead of just beat by a hair. Unfortunately ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Princess Yellow Feather the yellow-naped Amazon parrot singing 'Everything Is Awesome' from The LEGO Movie. Clearly somebody has a new favorite movie. And that somebody is me, and that movie is Waterworld. Keep going for the very worthwhile video.... / Continue →

    This is a video of 19-year old Feliks Zemdegs setting the new world record for solving a 7x7 Rubik's Cube. His time? 2 minutes, 23.55 seconds. I don't even think I could pick up a Rubik's Cube that fast. Also, I like how they keep the Rubik's Cube hidden under a bucket befo... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Samuraiguitarist (previously: a Bluegrass Game Of Thrones cover) using various instruments to perform all the music and sound effects for Super Mario 3. Hey -- everybody needs a hobby. You know what I like to do in my spare time? Spare time, LOL, I'm d... / Continue →

    These are some shots of the two-story villa that Chinese company ZhuoDa assembled in less than three hours using six previously 3-D printed modules. The company says it takes about 9 days to produce the modules. That is pretty impressive. Even more impressive considering the... / Continue →

    This is a video of a rice paddy in Japan that was grown with a Star Wars theme by planting four different kinds of rice to display 'STAR WARS' and pictures of R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8. I cannot even imagine the planning that went into this because one time I tried planting a stra... / Continue →

    This is a chart created by Phil Edwards over at Vox of the 8 voice actors and the 202 different Futurama characters they voiced (previously: the equally impressive Simpsons version). The top five actors voiced a total of 183 of the voices, and the top three 121 of the voices. ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Man At Arms detailing the process of forging a traditional Japanese katana (in this case a Hattori Hanzō replica from Kill Bill). They even start by making their own steel from iron ore. The whole process was pretty fascinating, and the finished product (... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Pluto taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft from about 8,000-miles above its surface. New Horizons was launched in January of 2006 and has spent the last decade traveling some 3-billion miles to gather data on everyone's favorite dwarf planet, Pluto. Serio... / Continue →

    This is the larger than full-scale R2-D2 quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach (who also made that awesome Snoopy one) to show off at San Diego Comic-Con, which apparently started today and doesn't start July 30th like I thought, which explains why it was so easy to book a che... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of scrap wood sculptures created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo. They are most impressive. Also, that is some seriously good looking scrap wood. I have never found scrap wood that looks so nice. You could probably build a house entirely up to code with that... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile higher-res shot of the armor HERE in case you wanted to take exact measurements to see whether or not your balls would hang below the codpiece. This is the Asgardian Iron Man leather armor created by the magicians at Prince Armory (previously: their Joker and ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Youtuber aryoksini of Mario running around in environments created using Unreal Engine 4. It is quite the departure from existing Mario games. A brief explanation while I try to jimmy the lock on my roommate's food stash and steal a Carnation Instant Bre... / Continue →

    This is a video of Super Mario World lover and speedrunner PangaeaPanga blasting through the game in 23 minutes WHILE BLINDFOLDED. He only dies a handful of times. For reference, I can't even figure out which way to hold the controller while blindfolded. I tried playing the ... / Continue →

    This is the Tim Burton inspired Batmobile motorcycle trike built by Game Over Cycles in Portland, Oregon. They did a great job. Now Batman needs to get a custom t-shirt with "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, ROBIN FELL OFF' printed on the back. He should probably get a Catwoman version... / Continue →

    This is the massive dragon sculpture created by driftwood sculptor James Doran Webb. Man, that thing would look amazing in my...okay, I don't really have any space big enough to fit that. Maybe if it was mounted on top of my car. Wait, where is my car? "You sold it for beer... / Continue →

    This is a video of David Achter de Molen, the lead singer of Dutch punk band John Coffey (named after the Green Mile character) managing to catch a cup of beer throw at him from a mile away, while crowdwalking. He then proceeds to chug what's left in the cup (who do you even t... / Continue →

    This is the 'Mars Attacks!' alien facepaint job created by makeup pro Marla Malone. It took me a second to figure out where the human face even was. And it only took one additional second to completely forget again. I don't have a very good memory. Speaking of: anybody seen... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of Grand Theft Auto gameplay imagined in real life. I see a lot of these 'in real life' videos (usually sent to me by the creators pretending to be people who just stumbled across the videos on Youtube) but they really did a great job with this one, ... / Continue →
