    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 →

    Inb4 my sperm would've won. The world's first cellular race was recently held in France, and I think I speak for everyone here when I say nobody cared. I mean, were they even accepting bets? Because I've got an angry bookie who's gonna make my legs bend backwards if I can't ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic starfish developed by scientits (not changing it) at Harvard. It's powered by pneumatics and can squeeze under a door, crawl up the a leg of a bed, and be hugging your face before you finally wake from that dream where all your teeth fall out and y... / Continue →

    This is a video of the "Trinity help" slow-motion bullets scene from The Matrix recreated entirely in LEGO. Admittedly, it was very well made. After around 440 hours of work, and just in time for the 10th anniversary of the original movie release, we are pleased to present to... / Continue →

    Remember how you heard J.J. Abrams snuck R2-D2 somewhere in the new Star Trek movie? And remember how you kept going back to the theater with the hopes of spotting him? God, you need a hobby. I dunno, World of Warcraft or something. Anyway, thanks to the recent release of th... / Continue →

    The Intelligent Bump is a speed bump that lowers itself if a driver is under a predetermined speed. It has no effect on me though because I drive a hovercar from the future. Dubbed the Intelligent Bump, this clever system by Mexico-based Decano Industries actually retracts ... / Continue →

    A million FPS, is that even possible? Because that's crazy if it is (also, black magical). I'll probably never do anything a million times, let alone in a single second. But regardless, this is a 10:00 video of bullets doing their thing in super slow-motion. There's some pr... / Continue →

    Okay, so maybe it doesn't. OR AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT THEY'D HAVE YOU BELIEVE. The Alsok Guard Robot D1 is being put to use in Fukuoka, Japan as tour guide/guard/monster piece of suck. Damn I'm good with the news! The area's tourist attraction known as Canal City opted to use ... / Continue →

    Ironsmith Kogoro Kurata went and built himself a little tank out of a Fiat and old tractor. Unfortunately, it tops out at 3km (~1.8MPH), making it the world's most boring drive. You could fall asleep at the wheel for an hour and not even make to the end of your driveway. No,... / Continue →

    Chris Lentz, instead of going the classy route and getting a pair of truck nuts, decided to throw a Czech built Motorlet M-701 turbojet in the bed of his truck. The fifty-five-year-old electrical foreman from Jackson, Michigan, had longed for a jet-powered truck for decades. T... / Continue →

    One day Dale Lyle got a speeding ticket in the mail issued by one of those automatic ticketing cameras. It claimed he was doing 98MPH in his 14-year old Honda Civic, a car he insisted could only do 85MPH max on a downhill slope with a tailwind. So what did he do? He did what... / Continue →

    It took Graham Parker 26 years to finally solve the Rubik's Cube he bought back in 1983. If you can't tell by the picture, he's really proud of himself. Kind of reminds me of the first time I ate a 72-oz steak and got my picture on the wall. 'I cannot tell you what a relie... / Continue →

    I love slow motion videos. Especially ones in which people are getting punched. And here comes another! It's a music video for Spanish rock-soul singer Bunbury for the song Hay Muy Poca Gente. And not only is there punching, but there's shit being broken over people's heads... / Continue →

    Yesterday we had still images of bullet destruction, and today -- video! It's actually a PSA created by a London radio station's "Peace on the Streets" campaign against gun violence. Just watch it. Then argue in the comments section about gun control like you all love to do.... / Continue →

    This is a video of lightning filmed in slow motion. It is wicked awesome and restored my faith in God. UPDATE: Lost $5 on a lotto scratch-off. There is no God. UPDATE: Got the prize I wanted in my Happy Meal. God loves me! UPDATE: Wife came home. Definitely no God, at... / Continue →

    This is a slow-motion video of a bunch of people getting punched in the face. It's very scientific and I learned a lot about physics and anatomy and how they should have thrown a brick instead. Slow-Motion Punches [collegehumor] Thanks Lee, now sit still, this won't hurt a b... / Continue →

    Martin Waugh's Liquid Sculptures are actually "high-resolution photographs taken at high speeds." And damn are they mesmerizing to look at. I orchestrate these sculptures by accurately aiming the drops and releasing them with precise timing. As nature takes its course, I phot... / Continue →

    Sculptor Benedict Radcliffe and pedal car designer Ben Wilson showed off this wire Lamborghini at the Art Car Parade in Manchester last month. If you can't tell, it's made of wire. And has pedals to make it go. God, can you imagine all the bugs splattered on your face when y... / Continue →
