    After teasing us for over a month (my nipples have been hard for weeks), Lexus has finally released a video of their liquid nitrogen-cooled magnetic superconductor hoverboard being ridden. It is more impressive that I imagined, and pro skateboarder (but only novice hoverboarde... / Continue →

    This is a video from Zheijiang University of a new hydrographic printing process (previously) that allows the subject to be printed accurately, regardless of the distortion dunking a 3D object in the water would create. Smart words because I am dumb: The group calls this "com... / 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 glimpse of the future of humanity as documented by Redditor ryanmerket. I'm not sure how I feel about. That's not true, I am sure how I feel about it, and it isn't good. We're one step closer to that slovenly dystopian future in WALL-E. And I, for one, want no par... / Continue →

    This is a tour of a Parisian apartment rendered with the Unreal Engine 4. It looks like reality. It's not though, it's just a rendering of an apartment that doesn't even exist in real life. Pretty impressive. Even more impressive? Trying to render my apartment to look real... / Continue →
