The amount of detail that goes into making these headphones is unreal

These Fostex TH900 headphones run for $1,300 which is completely silly and ridiculous and insane until you watch how they get made. The amount of detail put into each part, the careful consideration of each step, it's all pretty impressive. I know I would never spend that much money on headphones but I can't say… » 2/18/15 9:10pm 2/18/15 9:10pm

It may sound incredible but the Pillars of Creation don't exist anymore

This week NASA published new astonishing high definition images of the famous Pillars of Creation—two 4-light-year-tall columns located in the Eagle Nebula, 7,000 light years from here, first photographed in 1995. The only problem is that the pillars don't exist—they were destroyed more than a thousand years ago. » 1/10/15 3:00am 1/10/15 3:00am

Impressive kids solve math calculations shaking their fingers in the air

These Indian kids don't need a calculator to solve mathematical operations in just seconds. They do it all in their heads using a mental abacus—an old Asian technique that allows them to visualize an imaginary abacus and operate it to perform the calculations. » 1/08/15 7:09am 1/08/15 7:09am

New trailer for Star Citizen shows our space dreams come true

Star Citizen's new trailer claims all the footage is taken from the in-game engine, no pre-renderings, but it is so amazing, so detailed and beautiful, so impossibly complex, that I just can't believe it. If it is really this way, I will buy a PC, an Oculus Rift, and disappear forever from the face of the Earth. It is… » 12/23/14 6:47am 12/23/14 6:47am

Iced fog turns forest into real life Frozen magic kingdom

This weekend, a forest turned into a real life Frozen kingdom of ice in Hungary. It wasn't the Snow Queen Elsa, but the rapidly sinking temperatures that caused the fog to suddenly freeze on a hill top, turning trees into strange surreal sculptures like the one above. » 12/01/14 4:20am 12/01/14 4:20am

The most amazing and inspiring vision of the future I've ever seen

I have seen countless science fiction movies and documentaries about the future of humanity. None of them were as inspiring, beautiful, and realistic as this extraordinary short film by Erik Wernquist, narrated by Carl Sagan. Watch it and get ready for goosebumps. » 11/30/14 3:10am 11/30/14 3:10am

Chernobyl never looked more post-apocalypic than in this new drone film

Filmmaker Danny Cook went earlier this year to Pripyat—an abandoned city near Chernobyl, Ukraine—and captured this new amazing footage. It's the closest that, hopefully, you will ever see to a post-apocalyptic city, 28 years after the catastrophe that has killed about 200,000 people since then. » 11/26/14 6:26am 11/26/14 6:26am

This cargo ship getting deformed in the middle of a storm is terrifying

Amazing video of a large cargo ship passing through a small storm and the effect it has on its steel megastructure, which bends and moves as if it were made with Play-Doh. I love the sea but looking at what it is capable of and how small we are compared to it, I get terrified. Watch and see what I mean. » 11/15/14 2:29am 11/15/14 2:29am

The clearest video of Earth from space I've ever seen

Guillaume Juin took 80GB of photos from the International Space Station crew members from 2011 to 2014 and made this stunning film. Without a doubt, it's the most formidable video of the views from the ISS I've ever seen. Watching it makes me extra-jealous of the people up there. » 11/07/14 11:51pm 11/07/14 11:51pm

Revolutionary photo clearly shows star system forming for the first time

You are witnessing the formation of a solar system just like ours, 450 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Taurus, as photographed in detail for the first time in history by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array international observatory in Chile.

Can you detect the stealth animals hiding in all these pictures?

Can you see it? Hiding in plain sight there are two of the most stealthy creatures in the animal kingdom, almost impossible to detect.
