What being strapped to a rocket launch looks like (hint: awesome)

This is just awesome. A camera was strapped onto a GoFast 2014 rocket—an amateur rocket that set the record for highest and fastest rocket ever launched into space—so that we can see the entire launch from the rockets point of view. The initial burst and thrust into the air is epic and then the world starts spinning… » 2/24/15 8:46pm 2/24/15 8:46pm

Drone footage of Russia's Air Force Museum shows a heaven for planes

All these fighter jets and war planes and attack helicopters are on display at Russia's Central Air Force museum just outside of Moscow. They're advanced killing machines. And yet this drone footage makes them look so peaceful, resting and hibernating in the Russian winter snow. It's as if we've stumbled upon a… » 2/24/15 12:42am 2/24/15 12:42am

Chef magically cuts a carrot into an elaborate net

On good days, my knife skills could be considered rudimentary. On most other days though, I'm probably a danger to myself. So never in my wildest dreams would I ever think that I could pull this sorcery off: turn a regular carrot into a perfectly webbed net by strategically cutting it with a knife. The chef is a… » 2/23/15 10:58pm 2/23/15 10:58pm

Kick ass friends recreated all of Rambo for kick ass bachelor party

If you've had some fun blackout stories with the boys or had a crazy insane Hangover weekend for a bachelor party and thought that was fun, wait until you see this: a group of friends re-created the plot of Rambo for their friend Dana Saint's bachelor party. It was awesome. I mean, seriously. Motorcycle chases, boats,… » 2/10/15 9:58pm 2/10/15 9:58pm

Amazing aerial photos show Las Vegas like you have never seen it before

After capturing the most amazing images of New York ever, Vincent Laforet is using the same technology to photograph other major cities around the world. This is Las Vegas. The results are even crazier than NYC—with this unprecedented clarity and from this vantage point, Sin City looks like the world of Tron. Unreal. » 2/10/15 3:55am 2/10/15 3:55am

Seeing a bunch of random scenes in slow motion is surreal (NSFW)

If you ever wondered what hitting an egg with a golf club or throwing pork belly into a pan or shooting an arrow through a light bulb or cutting a woman's hair all looked like in slow motion, you don't have to wonder anymore, this video shows you and a lot of other awesome random things in slow motion. » 2/09/15 9:32pm 2/09/15 9:32pm

Clever video shows artist painting with paint made from Lego bricks

I love this stop motion animation video so much. Created by animator Jon Rolph, it shows a painter painting but instead of using regular ol' paint, the paint is made of Lego. It's so clever and so well done, you can see how the lighter brushstrokes use different bricks from the finished painting. » 2/04/15 11:46pm 2/04/15 11:46pm

Watch the unbelievable camouflage super powers of an octopus

Octopuses have become my favorite animals because it's very clear that they possess super powers from an alien world and even clearer that they use those powers for evil (or exactly how I would use them). Here's an octopus showing off his truly incredible camouflage powers. It goes from a brown mound to a blue water… » 2/04/15 12:13am 2/04/15 12:13am

Watch The Simpsons couch gag get recreated in glorious pixel animation

Here's one way to make you nostalgically love The Simpsons even more: add more nostalgia by recreating the entire opening sequence in pixel animation. Animated by Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon, this 16-bit pixelated rendition of The Simpsons completely nails it. It should totally be an official couch gag for a future… » 2/03/15 12:57am 2/03/15 12:57am

Watch a super hydrophobic knife cut through a water droplet

Black magic and sorcery and deals with the devil and breaks in The Matrix and possibly other dimensions. That's what super hydrophobic material is made out of. Like this super hydrophobic knife that just slices through a water droplet and cuts it in two. Are we really sure science can explain what my eyes are seeing? » 1/30/15 7:26pm 1/30/15 7:26pm

Watch a man ice climb a frozen Niagara Falls for the first time ever

People have gone down the Niagara Falls (which is already nuts) but Red Bull says that ice climber Will Gadd is the first person crazy enough to go up the falls. As in he climbed a damn waterfall. The Niagara Falls was frozen over but Gadd gets impossibly close to the falls and somehow makes it to the top. » 1/29/15 11:57pm 1/29/15 11:57pm

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 1/27/15 2:29pm

Here's a super fun video of the best sword fights in film history

Maybe because the idea of fighting with swords today seems so impossibly dangerous and probably because seeing steel on steel clang and cut flesh is just so damn viscerally satisfying but there's few things more riveting to see on screen than watching two or more actors try to kill each other with a sword. » 1/27/15 1:14am 1/27/15 1:14am

New amazing metal is so hydrophobic it makes water bounce like magic

Scientists at the University of Rochester have created a metal that is so extremely hydrophobic that the water bounces on it as if it were repelled by a magic force field. Instead of using chemical coatings they used lasers to etch a nanostructure on the metal itself. It will not wear off, like current less effective… » 1/20/15 10:19pm 1/20/15 10:19pm

New Avengers 2 trailer looks really disturbing (and cool)

This movie can't come fast enough because each trailer unveils a new layer and just adds to the sure to be epic-ness of The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. The latest trailer shows off some more action sequences and reveals a lot of infighting and gets quite tense thanks to every character giving their best worry face. » 1/12/15 9:25pm 1/12/15 9:25pm
