    This is a fan made preview for a live action Adventure Time movie. They're not actually making the movie, just this preview. Is that what Jake would really look like in real life? Because that's not what I imagined. He looks more like a sloth. Besides that, the story seems... / 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 hot air balloon inspired by 'Up'. You know, because it looks like the house and balloons from the movie. Come on, this really shouldn't be that hard to understand. Unfortunately, I can tell from the look on your face you're actually having trouble comprehending. ... / Continue →

    Because real life is boring when you're not staring at a phone, Google has created Ingress, an augmented reality "Warcraft like" MMORPG that's played in real life through an Android app. I'm not sure how I feel about it EXCEPT I AM GOING TO F***ING WIN. I played SimCity, I kn... / Continue →

    This is an abandoned farm house that artist Heather Benning turned into a human-sized dollhouse (provided a human-sized dollhouse is just a regular house with no wall on one side). Pretty neat, right? Personally, I would have turned the farm house into a blazing inferno with ... / Continue →
