    Patatap (embedded after the jump or you can visit the official site or a full-screen version) is a little browser app that plays a different sound and animation for every letter of the keyboard. So you just mash away and CREATE MAGIC. Or a cacophony (somebody threw a Gatorade... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →

    A new world record for the longest man-made reverberating echo has destroyed the previous record holder by a staggering 97-seconds. For reference, that would be like confidently entering the world's largest penis competition and having yours hang to your knees, while the next ... / 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 →

    Dude -- don't Fus Ro Dah your companion! This is another informational video from Jake Roper of vsauce3 discussing how loud something would have to be to actually move a person. And I'm not just talking about your balls jiggling at a rave, I'm talking about getting thrown aro... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Chladni plate experiment in which sand resonates to different frequencies to reveal a particular frequency's SECRET PATTERN. And we all love secret patterns here, right? Think of it as a special door knock you have to know to get into a club, but like, a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a drop of liquid mercury reacting to different audio frequencies. Sometimes it makes a blob, sometimes it makes a doughnut, and sometimes a starfish. But it ALWAYS makes its friends feel welcome and wanted because that's what good friends do, unlike mine wh... / Continue →

    It already has a ton of views so I'm not going to spend too much time talking about it, but this is a video of a cat that jumps scared every time it hears the Mario jump soundbite from the original game. To the cat's credit though, its owner has the speakers cranked up to 11, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of DARPA's latest alien technology, a sonic fire extinguisher (just kidding, it's actually just two speakers). It puts fires out with sound. Me? I've actually seen a fire MADE with sound before. I'm serious, one time my buddy held a lighter to back of his sw... / Continue →

    This is a vest with an integrated 8-inch subwoofer. You know, because carrying a boombox around on your shoulder apparently isn't cool enough anymore. *rambles on about the good old days until you get bored and leave so I can finally strip down to the flesh and drink in peace... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're wondering, "WTF SORT OF SORCERY SHITTERY IS THIS?" And I'm right there with you. As a matter of fact, we're holding hands. No, no we're not. But I am trying to inconspicuously touch your butt with my leg. "You're that guy from the bus!" FUFUFUFUUUUUU... / Continue →

    Note: very worthwhile video is after the jump. This is a video of an expert explaining a pair of entirely-mechanical automaton 'Singing Bird' pistols (MADE ALMOST 200 YEARS AGO AROUND 1815!!) that recently sold at a Christie's auction for just short of $6-million. Unfortunate... / Continue →

    Red Bull sponsored Felix Baumgartner is going to freefall from at least 120,000 feet and attempt to break a bunch of records, including, but not limited to: being the first person to break the sound barrier with just his body. You're gonna implode, bro! This is a mission to o... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful shot (super high-res version HERE) of NASA's Ares rocket taken earlier this week just as it broke the sound barrier. Pretty awesome, huh? Just imagine if you were sitting on top. WHEEEEE!! What you're looking at is called a "shock egg," or the Prandtl-Gl... / Continue →

    Ronald Dejarnett is the U.S. Navy sonar technician that snapped this pic of an F-22 going boom boom over the Gulf of Alaska. Quick shootin', Ronald -- I probably would have peed a little and yelled DECEPTICON! But that could be my special forces training talking. A Picture I... / Continue →

    Some guy went and programmed a whole bunch of old computer parts to perform Queen's iconic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. You just have to see it to believe it. But, you can read this first if you want: No effects or sampling was used. What you see is what you hear (does that even mak... / Continue →

    This is a video of a kitten literally NOM NOM NOMing its chow. Just listen, particularly around 0:10 and 0:55. Was that not cute? It was. Not as cute as the picture I drew of a panther licking a lion with the words 'Interracial Dating' in a heart, but what is? This post ... / Continue →

    We already discovered cats have a penchant for Roombas, but who knew the little fish-loving shit machines love riding subwoofers as well? Not me. But, as is evident from the video, its like an amusement park ride for the little furballs. Toss some catnip into the mix and it'... / Continue →

    In 1997 Pilot Andy Green went 763mph in the Thrust SuperSonic Car, and now, 10 years later, is building a car that will potentially hit 1,000mph. And, hopefully for him, nothing else. "Bloodhound isn't just about building a quick car," Andy told us. "Our main concern is edu... / Continue →

    I remember seeing this a while ago, but for those of you who have yet to witness its awesomeness, here it is: some guy showing off his one of a kind antique recording. Warning: he says shit and the host of the show made me punch through my monitor. But still, totally worth a... / Continue →
