    This is a video reenacting the gameplay of the PC/Playstation's top-down style Grand Theft Auto 2, using a camera-equipped drone. They did a great job, and clearly put some real thought into making the video. Personally, I only put real thought into 1) what to have for lunch ... / Continue →

    This is a video shot on Huntington Beach of a stunt kite pilot taunting a kid with his insane kite control skills. I didn't even know half of those moves were possible to perform with a kite. And apparently neither did Benjamin Franklin, which is why his bag of kite tricks co... / Continue →

    This is the giant realistic cat head mask made out of wool by Housetu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art. Wool Art: apparently it has a school in Japan. I'm not sure why they made the eyes crossed though. Regardless, I want one to up my furry cred. Jk jk,... / Continue →

    This is the Boneshaker Big Wheel, the brainchild of Ron Schroer. Pedaling powers a bunch of Theo Jansen kinetic motion sculpture inspired walking legs in the rear that push the bike forward. It is probably not the bike you want to be riding if you're trying to get away from t... / Continue →
