Video: Flyover drone footage of Auschwitz concentration camp is haunting

The BBC flew a drone over the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp today to show off what it looks like and it's absolutely haunting. Over a million people died in this concentration camp from 1940 to 1945. It's been 70 years since the Soviets liberated the camp and it's still so tragic to see. » 1/29/15 2:17am Today 2:17am

Short film: We're so obsessed with our phones that we're missing life

This short animation Mr. Selfie by We Are Seventeen totally nails everyone's over reliance on their phones. We use it in bed to fall asleep, we use it in bed when we can't fall asleep, we have our phone in the bathroom, on our commutes, on the sidewalk, through live events, through nature and basically through life. » 1/29/15 1:47am Today 1:47am

Here's the surprisingly old school way that an NFL football is made

Super Bowl Sunday is only a few days away and all anyone really wants to talk about is deflated footballs. We don't care about any of that. We just like to see how things get made. Here's a NY Times video that shows you the inside of a Wilson Football Factory. They get sewed together, flipped inside out, stitched,… » 1/28/15 11:58pm Yesterday 11:58pm

This may be one of the grossest-looking foods ever but tastes delicious

"If we're eating an animal, we're eating it from head to toe so nothing is wasted," says our friend Anna Péter—from the Hungarian food blog Malackaraj—in this video that shows how to cook with caul fat, "a layer of fat that surrounds the innards of pigs, cows and sheep." It looks gross when raw but I've tasted it and… » 1/28/15 6:04pm Yesterday 6:04pm

How breathing marks every single second of our lives

Breathing is not only the most crucial part of our existence but an expression of ourselves at the most basic level.

Super close up images of common objects are beautifully alien

If you look at anything closely, you'll begin to see things you never saw before. That's why it's super fun to look at really common objects up close because it reveals a whole 'nother side, the world is both beautifully detailed and disgusting from up close. Pyanek did that in the series Amazing Worlds Within Our… » 1/28/15 12:45am Yesterday 12:45am

Watch a drone shoot fireworks at people from the drone's point of view

Some guys essentially weaponized a drone by strapping Roman Candles onto the flying machine and making it fly around and shoot fireworks at people (themselves). The video made by PIEROGRAM is totally crude but is also a preview of how the world will end. Death by laser shooting drones and human stupidity. » 1/27/15 9:12pm Tuesday 9:12pm

The future of SpaceX rockets looks so freaking awesome in this new video

Despite the 80s hard rock soundtrack—or maybe because of it—SpaceX's new 3D animation showing their future Falcon Heavy in action, complete with the landing of three of its stages back on Earth, is freaking cool. I can't wait for Elon Musk's bandits to solve all problems and see this happening in real time. » 1/27/15 2:29pm Tuesday 2:29pm

Striking images of the first war that felt like a video game

The USAF Air Combat Command just tweeted this photo: "Today in 1991, US-backed coalition air forces attained air supremacy over the Iraqis." Aside from any geopolitical consideration, there's something unsettling about it. It is simultaneously imposing for what it shows and terrible for what it doesn't. » 1/27/15 12:56pm Tuesday 12:56pm
