    This is a video of a group of French drone hobbyists racing quadrocopters (and other variants) through the woods with the help of on-board cameras and video goggles. It looks like fun. Especially if those copters were outfitted with POWERFUL LASER WEAPONS capable of F***ING S... / Continue →

    This is the Coppelius Chair designed by Yaara Dekel to cast the shadow of an evil face when light is hitting it from the right direction. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "It would be cool if you were sitting in it and lit a fart to make it breathe fire?" What? No. Tha... / Continue →

    This is a video of voice actors Sean Schemmel and Jason Douglas recording their character's lines for the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. They really get into character. Lots of fist clenching and face making. I do the same thing when I'm on the phone with telemarketers... / Continue →

    This is a wedding cake on display by Disney at their recent Fairy Tail Weddings Expo that's been projection mapped so you can display video on it. In this case, Tinkerbell and a horse and carriage. It's not the first time I've seen a projection mapped wedding cake (Donkey Kon... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Panteón de Dolores, a 590-acre cemetery in Mexico (the country's largest) with some 700,000 graves. That is a lot of graves. In my backyard? Just a single guinea pig grave. But beyond the fence? An ancient Indian burial ground. And trust me, you d... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of OMOTE real-time face tracking and projection mapping. In this example, it's used to apply "digital makeup" to a model, then transform her into a cyborg, all in real-time. That's pretty impressive. I actually have a couple friends who it would... / Continue →

    Meet Mr. Knocky. He's a battery-free drum toy controlled by swinging two hand-held triggers. Not digging the sound of his plastic drums? No worries, you can swap them out for other percussion surfaces like a soup can or Pringles can. He is not recommended for use drumming o... / Continue →

    This is the cloud formation spotted by Emileh S. It looks uncannily like Godzilla roaring some sort of powerful beam attack. I would not want to be on the receiving end of that! Or his penis. Wait -- is Godzilla a he or a she? Or both? Or neither? I'm only asking so I ca... / Continue →

    This is a short test shot video created by artist Alexey Zakharov featuring the world of Futurama rendered in beautiful 3-D. It's quite stunning -- like you on a Friday night. "In front of the television in my PJ's with a quart of ice cream?" Stop it, you're going to make my... / Continue →

    This is a cute video from animator Hombre_McSteez in which he augments reality with cartoons by drawing stop-motion animations on clear cels and holding them over real-life action. It's worth a watch. Unless you're a dingleberry. If you're a dingleberry don't bother because ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Redditor LivingOaks' mom's eyeball. It has a naturally occuring blood vessel that spells love in cursive. Although personally I think it actually spells lovem. Still, I'm jealous the blood vessels in my eyes don't spell anything. Maybe if I pop a fe... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian boy who built himself a little model excavator using plastic syringe hydraulics. Most impressive. I'd pretend I could have made something like that growing up, but I'd be lying. The only thing I was making at his age were messes in my pants. "... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy demonstrating Lenz's Law with neodymium magnets and a thick-ass copper tube. Why does the magnet fall so slowly? SCIENCE. Via Wikipedia because I suck at explaining things except 1) where babies come from and 2) RPG strategies. Eddy currents (also... / Continue →

    Seen here looking dapper as hell, 13-year old Jamie Edwards poses in front of his nuclear fusion set-up that was successfully able to collide two hydrogen atoms into a helium atom without leveling the school. This makes Jamie the younger nuclear fushion-er on the planet, and a... / Continue →

    This are Erik Aberg's Ghostcubes, a bunch of different interconnected cardboard cube designs that behave in magical ways. You really just have to watch the video to appreciate them, because they're hard to describe. Kind of like your beauty. Like, radiant doesn't do you just... / Continue →

    This is Mortal Coil, a 3-D printed skull slinky designed by Ryan Kittleson. You can buy one on Shapeways for $50. Skulls are cool. We all have one. Some people just have less going on inside theirs. You know who I'm talking about. I'm talking about that really stupid pers... / Continue →

    Note: Screencap above is the singer in the middle with a microphone. Watch the video at full screen in HD. Also, be sure to watch at work so your coworkers think you're a crazy person staring at a static screen. This is the music video for Young Rival's 'Black Is Good'. It'... / Continue →

    This is one of the $13,000 bar stools made by Hanger 54 from the Martin Baker Mk10 ejector seat from a decommissioned RAF Panavia Tornado. I would drink in that. I would drink in that AND perform constant barrel rolls (technically just 360's). I love playing fighter pilots a... / Continue →

    This is a video tutorial from CrazyRussianHacker (of how to open a can with no tools fame) showing how to make square bubbles with a rig made out of cotton swabs. Don't have any cotton swabs? Then how the hell are you cleaning your ears? And don't tell me you bought that lit... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Tokyo of scientists using four speakers to levitate and move objects in midair. Unfortunately, those objects are limited Styrofoam balls, water droplets, and other pieces of barely there. I want to see them levitate a human. Or implode ... / Continue →
