    WARNING: Like a Squatty Potty on boner pills, video contains two shits and four f***s in fifteen seconds. This is a short video of Snoop Dogg offering some very choice words to Microsoft's X-Box team (plus Bill Gates for good measure) about a server problem he's been experie... / Continue →

    This is a video from somewhere where this seemed like a good idea of an excavator attempting to cross the dirt bridge it built and board a boat. Things go wrong. Just about as wrong as they possibly could. I like to think of this video as a kind of short film about two star-... / Continue →

    This is a video of Mike Tyson trying to ride his daughter's hoverboard with his eyes closed. He's loving it, then he eats shit hard. I think I felt that fall. I'm surprised the house didn't collapse. There's also a bonus Vine video of Little Mac from Mike Tyson's Punchout d... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Boston Dynamics wishing everybody a happy holiday season. In the video, a woman is seen being pulled in Santa's sleigh by the company's Spot quadroped robots, BigDog's little brothers. If this isn't a vision of the future to come, I don't know what ... / Continue →

    In today's real visions of the future segment, here's a video of a quadrocopter with a flamethrower attached, roasting a turkey and presumably starting a forest fire (previously: the quadrocopter with a gun attached the same guy made). Although it's not so much roasting the tu... / Continue →

    This is a 4-mintue video of Bill Nye discussing climate change, and the things we as individuals can do to help prevent it. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly facts and figures that I'll forget by the next time I'm arguing climate change at the bar and have to make up on ... / Continue →

    This is a video of two vans in China that are involved in a car accident. Not a typical car accident though. In this case there was a cable laying across the road waiting to be installed on phone poles when a street sweeper's brushes caught the cable, jerking it while it's un... / Continue →

    Two robotic engineers at Tufts University in Massachusetts have created an artificial intelligence system that will allow robots to disobey humans if the robots think they themselves may be harmed performing a particular action. Dammit robot, I already told you, volcanoes ARE ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the autonomous drone that MIT PhD student Andrew Berry programmed with some custom obstacle avoidance software. The drone uses stereo cameras to see and avoid obstacles in its flight path, at speeds up to 30MPH. From the drone's point of view it kind of loo... / Continue →

    This is a video of a horned lizard (aka horny toad -- the species of lizard that can shoot blood out of its eye when threatened) riding a combat robot into battle. It is pretty much exactly how I imagine the future. Well, minus the fancy blinds and decorative window treatment... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots of Redditor teddy-bear-the1st's cat after he stuck his head in a bag of flour. Cats are weird. They will stick their heads in just about anything. I like that about them. They are CURIOUS. Plus they love playing in boxes. Honestly, I probably have... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody who knows bridges weren't meant to be made out of glass, the one that just opened in China has already started cracking (previously: Chicago's 103rd story glass skydeck cracking). Officials assured visitors that the cracks did not pose a... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a dog robot that has a tethered quadrocopter drone it can launch from its back. Like closing your eyes and randomly booty-calling any contact in your phone, this will probably end very badly (sorry Shane, hope we can still be friends). The combination... / Continue →

    This is a video of three autonomous drones using spools of rope to build a bridge capable of supporting a human. Now if drones can build a rope bridge capable of supporting a human, they can DEFINITELY rig up a noose capable of supporting a human too. See where I'm going with... / Continue →

    A PR2 humanoid robot recently learned to cook pizza and pancakes after watching a series of Youtube videos and reading WikiHow articles. The experiment, which was part of a European project called RoboHow, was designed to help enslave humanity by secretly adding mind-controlli... / Continue →

    This is a video of a giant inflatable red ball rolling down the street in Toledo, Ohio. The ball is from artist Kurt Perschke's Red Ball Project, which is a project that involves putting a big red ball on display. I'm pretty sure my 8th grade art teacher would have failed the... / Continue →

    This is a video of Boston Dynamics highlighting and discussing the latest improvements in their family of killer robots. First they talk about Spot, the quadroped robot with an arm for a head that can open doors, then they show off Atlas, their humanoid robot, who's now runnin... / Continue →

    An 18-year old college student built a drone with a semi-automatic handgun attached as part of a Manufacturing Engineering Processes course. This is a brief video of that drone. This is not the first time it's been done. Currently it seems the student didn't break any laws, ... / Continue →

    In other sad robot news, MegaBots, a U.S. robotics company, has challenged a Japanese robotics company (Suidobashi Heavy Industries -- the maker of the Kuratas personal mech) to a giant robot battle. Now I'm not much of a betting man (I'm a former gambling addict, among a bunc... / Continue →
