    Seen here interviewing for a job at the circus after all the ball-balancing bears ran away, this is a video of an automated platform that can keep a ball bearing perfectly balanced in the middle, despite the interviewer's lackluster efforts to knock it off. Not to brag or anyt... / Continue →

    This is a video of two mesmerizing 9V battery packing robots recently on display at PackExpo 2014, which, yes, is a trade show about packaging things. Just look at those robots go! Way more efficient that people. If they had actual people doing this you'd have Lucille Ball s... / Continue →

    This is the clock at the Ham Yard Hotel in London. It has 135 smaller clocks synchronized to create mesmerizing geometric patterns in between displaying the time in big block numbers. I could watch it all day. Paint drying and grass growing too. I'm a simple man. "You're b... / Continue →

    Note: Probably shouldn't watch if you're epileptic. This is is a video that, if you watch and follow the instructions (full screen and HD recommended), will make your vision all wavy for a few seconds after you look away at the end. Did anybody else notice the letters they ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    This is a Kickstarter for Project NESM (Never Ending Slink Machine). It's a USB powered treadmill for a Slinky. The project is already funded though so you can definitely get one for around $65 when they're shipped this fall. I actually bought one. I'm pretty sure I could w... / Continue →

    This is a video of Parisian tattoo artist Gaëtan Le Gargasson inking a tattoo while being filmed in ultra-slow motion. It was pretty mesmerizing to watch. How many tattoos do you have? I have four. Only two of which are always visible, and one of which can only be seen by l... / Continue →

    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →

    This is a mesmerizing 15-minute video of an artist manipulating sand on a spinning surface to hypnotize your brain and make you do things you normally wouldn't. In my case, it was eat a healthy lunch. I'm kidding, I had half a box of Girl Scout Cookies and the Snickers bar I ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 141-car model train traveling in an infinite spiral and loop. I like that couch. I think my parents had the same couch when I was a kid. OR DID THEY? Dum dum dum! Now that I think about it I think ours was different. You know how much cereal I lost in... / Continue →

    I know a wire bending machine doesn't sound that exciting, but you are wrong. This shit is HYPNOTIC. Like, on the count of three you will give me a kiss. One...two...three. Okay, where was my kiss? Screw it, I'm pulling out the big guns. *dangling pocket watch* When I s... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Slow Mo Guys (not the nickname I would've hoped for) of a fully automatic assault rifle being fired and recorded at 18,000 frames/second. For reference, that's 1,000 times the age I was when I touched my first boob, minus 4,000. Watching the casings b... / Continue →

    This is a series of animated beer labels made by Trevor Carmick of Beer Labels In Motion. Mesmerizing, aren't they? If actual beer bottles did this I wouldn't even want to talk to other people while I drank, just stare at my bottle. Jk jk, I already hate talking to other peo... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garden hose that was left out in freezing temperatures overnight while coiled up. The next morning its owner uncoiled it, turned on the water, and SURPRISE: got a free pile of cylindrical ice cubes. That's weird because when I did the same thing growing u... / Continue →

    This is a video of ink drops being dropped into water shot at 4k resolution (4,096 × 2,304). I included a diagram after the jump so you can appreciate how big 4k is versus 1080. Sadly, your monitor won't be able to play the video in its native resolution, but if you click the... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a Melbourne, Australia fireworks show viewed in reverse. No screepcap can really do it justice though, so I suggest you at least watch a little bit of it. A lot of the fireworks reminded me of those little shooting stars you see in your vision af... / Continue →

    This is a video of a piece of red scarf dancing around in the air vortex artist David Wertzel created with a bunch of fans. It's pretty mesmerizing to watch, and several times you'd swear it was a ghost. So I guess it could even be considered erotic for those of you that are ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of water droplets that appear frozen in midair. But they're not, it's just an optical illusion. Or so they'd like you to believe. The long explanation: You're actually seeing 25 different drops [or segments of the stream] every second... the waveform b... / Continue →
