Insane night wingsuit flight results in this spectacular picture


Wingsuit flyer Patrick Kerber didn't seem to be daunted by the idea of jumping from the top of a mountain to a dark void—only slightly illuminated by a red flare he holds in his hand—to take a picture. It's true that the resulting photo is stunning but also one of the craziest and most dangerous stunts I've ever seen. » 3/06/15 6:12am Today 6:12am

Animation recreated frame-by-frame in real life with 3D printing 

This clever art installation shows a CGI animation that's been converted into a real life frame-by-frame depiction of the animation with 3D printing. As in, the artists took the digital animation they had in a video and showed what every frame would look like (all at once) with actual figures. It gets pretty trippy. » 3/05/15 11:35pm Yesterday 11:35pm

Check out the amazing acrobatic skills of a jumping praying mantis

When a young praying mantis leaps into the air, it can reach its target in literally a blink of an eye (less than a tenth of a second). Speed aside, the mechanics of a praying mantis jump is what makes it special: three different body parts rotate in different directions and different combinations in an incredibly… » 3/05/15 11:05pm Yesterday 11:05pm

Side-by-side: The visual similarities between Birdman and Black Swan

Though Black Swan was directed by Darren Aronofsky and Birdman was helmed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, it's pretty easy to see similarities between the two Oscar nominated (Birdman won the Oscar for Best Picture too) films. Miguel Branco noticed the similarities and created this video showing it off side by side. » 3/05/15 9:41pm Yesterday 9:41pm

First ultra HD video of Mount Everest and the Himalayas made my jaw drop

Wow. What a stunner. This breathtaking video was shot from above 20,000 feet and captures the Himalayas in such clear detail that I actually gasped when I watched it. You get to see Mount Everest, Ama Dablam and Lhotse in their natural glory and the view is just majestic. I don't think I'll ever get closer than this. » 3/05/15 7:59pm Yesterday 7:59pm

Can this picture of a frog riding a beetle be real or is it fake?

Petapixel has republished a great article about fake nature photos written by a group of nature photographers who are denouncing the abuses of some of their colleagues.

How fighter jet pilots pass snack bars in the cockpit while flying

No one, not even these fighter pilots, can't resist a chocolate bar when the munchies strike. This video shows how the pilot in the front passes a Snickers bar to his colleague just by opening his hand and letting it float to the back of the cockpit dragged by the acceleration forces. So cool. » 3/05/15 8:28am Yesterday 8:28am

This is how professional designers create their posters

Although I've studied the basics of graphic design, every time I see a cool poster, or a beautiful record cover, my mind goes through the same process. Something like "Wow, that's cool. How the hell did they make this." Professional graphic designer James White explains in this interesting video how he does it. Take… » 3/05/15 6:53am Yesterday 6:53am

A love story filmed exclusively looking down on a bed

Jack Tew and Sorcha Anglim came up with such an awesomely creative way to tell a love story and one that makes so much sense: From the sole perspective of the bedroom. The short, Me & You, is filmed completely from the ceiling of the room, giving you a bird's eye view of the entire relationship, from start to finish. » 3/05/15 12:59am Yesterday 12:59am

Game of Thrones animated in crude and foul animations is so much fun

Game of Thrones is a beautiful show to watch because the world is so interesting and the characters are so twisted and the story is so screwed up and the sets are so picturesque and the special effects are so well done. But strip all of that away and use crude animations to replace all that and somehow, it's still a… » 3/04/15 11:40pm Wednesday 11:40pm

A Britney Spears music video without music is all squeaks and squealing

Britney could never really sing and she could only really dance in choreographed stunt pieces and eventually became a crazy person and then a mom but when she was a superstar, she was one of the brightest to ever burn. It's almost fitting to watch a musicless version of her music video because it's just Britney, betch. » 3/04/15 10:46pm Wednesday 10:46pm

Watch hermit crabs form a line from biggest to smallest to trade shells

This is a clip from an episode of BBC's Life Story and it shows how orderly (and also completely chaotic) hermit crabs can be when it comes to trading homes. They all meet up in front of a shell, line themselves up from biggest to smallest and then trade shells with each other by jumping from one to the next. » 3/04/15 8:28pm Wednesday 8:28pm
