    This is Diane's Bare-Hearted Glassfrog, a newly discovered and described species of translucent-bellied frog that lives in the Talamanca Mountains of Costa Rica. It also looks like Kermit the Frog. You think Kermit faked his own death to get away from Miss Piggy and go live i... / Continue →

    This is the Make Project created by Christian Poulsen detailing how to build your own functional BB-8 droid with a Sphero robotic ball toy, a foam head, and a neodymium magnet. It works pretty well, although his head doesn't stay on top as smoothly as the real BB-8. Still, im... / 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 →

    These are a couple shots of the skeleton jungle gym created by artist Peter Riss and on display in the backyard of the Heilig-Kreuz church in Munich, Germany. I don't think it's made from real bones though. I also don't think you're supposed to climb on it. I doubt those bon... / Continue →

    Seen here eyeballing a friend with a rocket launcher strapped to its back, an endangered Amazon river turtle prepares to take us on a journey of epic proportions. Minus the epic proportions part. It's really just some murky underwater footage of a turtle party. Still, it was... / 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 →

    This is a heartwarming video of several colorblind people experiencing the full spectrum for the first time thanks to a pair of corrective glasses developed by EnChroma. You know, I had a colorblind roommate in college. You could never send him to go get condiments in the caf... / Continue →

    Remember Kirstie Williams' fake hair octopus hairclips? Well now she's selling them in all sorts of colors and styles in her Etsy store CuriousCephalopods (~$97). I just bought two, so I can have two octopuses tentacle-fighting on top of my head. What are they fighting over?... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Eizzy Folding Table designed and built by Izzy Swan of Think Woodworks. The 20" x 20" x 30" box breaks into two stackable pieces, and folds out into four stools and a table. Perfect for picnics! What do you say we make some sandwiches and grab a couple... / Continue →

    Flood Map is an interactive map you can use to see just what increase in water elevation it would take to flood your town/state/country/world. Apparently it takes a pretty significant increase to flood anything but the coasts, and this map here represents a water elevation of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Dragon Ball Z Goku figurine posed in a holographic display, which makes him appear like he's on fire and about to launch a ki blast. So the figure is real, the special effects are holograms. Life? Life is an illusion. When I snap my fingers you will wak... / Continue →

    This is a video of the scout trooper on speeder bike quadrocopter made and flown by copter hobbyist and Star Wars fan Adam Woodworth. It is one of the most impressive quadrocopter mods I've seen, which is saying a lot because I've seen them all, including a full scale naked la... / Continue →

    This is A Shout Within a Storm, an installation by artist Glenn Kaino featuring over 100 copper arrows all seeming to be headed towards the same point. That point being, more often than not, somebody making a face and getting their picture taken. I've had dreams of dying in a... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cuttlefish using an awesome laser lightshow (technically not lasers or lights, but colorful cells expanding and contracting) to stun a crab so it can eat it. I love crabs. Thankfully, I don't have to stun them to eat them, just wait till it's my birthday ... / Continue →

    This is a video from BBC's Life Story (narrated by David Attenborough, so you already know it's the tits) of a group of hermit crabs off the coast of Belize that form a line from biggest to smallest to quickly exchange shells whenever a new, larger shell washes ashore. It was ... / Continue →

    Because paisley rims. This isn't a new video, so you may have already seen it. But if you haven't, you're in for a treat. And not some shitty Rice Krispie Treat either, a REAL treat. Like a banana split made with all your favorite ice creams and toppings and bananas with NO... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to smell the moon dust. These are the items found by Neil Armstrong's wife in a white bag in his closet after his death. They might look like junk, but they're actually a bunch of items yanked from the Eagle, Apollo 11's Lunar Module... / Continue →
