Watch artisans make perfect replicas of diferent objects by hand

I don't care if this is an ad made just to sell beauty products. I'm fascinated by the hands of these artisans and how they transform big chunks of marble, metal, and wood into perfect replicas of body care products containers. I only wish there were more videos showing in detail how they made each one of these. » 3/27/15 7:32am Friday 7:32am

This video is proof that Tokyo is the most unique city in the world

Japan can be both traditional and effortlessly modern, but most of all it's unique. The chaos and quirks and creativity and energy of Tokyo all combine to create a city filled with things that exist nowhere else.

Watching a CD spin so fast that it gets warped and shatters is so fun

The Slow Mo Guys spun a CD (a Spotify playlist shaped like a circle mirror, kids) so fast that it started warping and then eventually shattered into a hundred little pieces. You can see the disc spinning at 23,000 RPM and getting bent out of shape until it just gives out, all at once. So cool. » 3/25/15 3:00pm Wednesday 3:00pm

Awesome short film shows Star Wars from the Empire's perspective

Watch this. Now. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It's done in the style of anime from the 80's and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings and is pretty much so awesome that Disney should make this an entire movie. » 3/24/15 11:46am Tuesday 11:46am

How that crazy city of Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy was made

One of the reasons I enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy so much was because I got to explore a world in which I had no expectations. Take that crazy city Knowhere, which is inside a giant Celestial head, I didn't even know it existed, let alone know what it "should" look like. Here's the VFX reel showing how the city… » 3/19/15 8:05pm 3/19/15 8:05pm

This dancer in a light suit is totally breaking reality

Damn. This video of a dancer in a light suit is like staring into a future that us humans chained to the present aren't supposed to see. The dancing is fun to watch, of course, but there's something about that black and white light up suit moving in those ways that is just jarring and completely warps my view of… » 3/18/15 6:06pm 3/18/15 6:06pm
